You are in Home » The Surprising Twist In Boris Johnson’s Resignation As Prime Minister

Boris Johnson was made to pen down his resignation after he won the vote of confidence in the House of Commons.

This resignation came sudden but not a surprise as many, mostly his party members called for his resignation.

Upon his appointment, he was made to deliver Brexit (Britain/UK agitation to leave the European Union) but failed which brought him down the hill.

Earlier today (on Thursday), his Minister of Finance appointed urged Boris Johnson to quit. A man that Boris Johnson appointed less than 48 hours ago.

We recall that Theresa May, the former Prime Minister also pen down her resignation months after winning the vote of confidence in the House of Commons.

The fall of Boris Johnson

Among other things, there are six major events or reasons that led to the fall of Boris Johnson.

Lack of Focus

His former adviser, among other cabinet members, said he lacked focus and ideas in the cabinet.

A party member and Member of Parliament, Jeremy Hunt accused Boris Johnson of incompetence, lack of vision and not being a man of integrity.

His relationship with Owen Peterson

Sometime last year, in October 2021 to be precise, the House of Commons gave Owen Peterson, former Conservative MP, a 30-day suspension.

The suspension was a result of him breaking the House lobbying rules in order to benefit companies who paid him for the job.

But we later saw the Conservatives voted to pause the suspension in order to set up another committee to investigate the matter that was against Peterson.

Boris Johnson led the Conservatives to pause the suspension of Peterson.

After much public outcry, Owen Peterson had to resign. Boris Johnson later admitted he handled the case poorly.

The rise in taxes and cost of living

Many of the reasons for the rise in taxes and cost of living were out of his control.

According to recent statistics, there is a sharp increase in UK inflation which is presently at 9.1%.

As a result of the government trying to cut fuel duty, it increased tax. This increment affected National Insurance.

Despite the fact that the government increased tax, it said the tax would be used to pay for health and social care but anyone who earns more than £34,000 per year will have to pay more.

The leader of the Labour Party said in April:

In the middle of the worst cost of living crisis for decades, the government chooses to increase taxes on working people.

Lockdown rules

Earlier in April, Mr. Boris Johnson broke lockdown rules. He was fined after he attended a gathering on his birthday in June 2020.

Not only did he attend a large birthday gathering in June 2020, but he also, in the first lockdown …

…when he went to a “bring your own booze” party in the Downing Street garden

Aside from him being fined, the Metropolitan Police issued 126 fines to 83 people.

They were fined for breaking lockdown rules in Downing Street and Whitehall.

The resigning of two key Cabinet members

Earlier this week, on Tuesday, two of Boris Johnson’s key Cabinet members penned their resignation due to the fact they could not tolerate the culture of scandal that befell him for months.

The key Cabinet members are Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid. They both held two key roles in Boris Johnson Cabinets.

Rishi Sunak was the Chancellor of the Exchequer while Sajid Javid was the Secretary of Health/Health Secretary.

Despite all odds,

Johnson plans to carry on as prime minister until a new leader is chosen later in the summer, a task that can take up to two months.
