Manori Ravindran International EditorBoris Johnson’s government is facing collapse following the resignations of two high-profile ministers who have stepped down in protest of the prime minister’s conduct amid numerous scandals.Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid — both of whom are close to the prime minister — resigned from their roles on Tuesday evening, local time, in the span of 30 minutes.

Their resignations follow revelations that Johnson appointed disgraced Member of Parliament Chris Pincher as his deputy chief whip despite being aware of previous allegations of sexual misconduct against Pincher.“I am instinctively a team player but the British people also rightly expect integrity from their Government,” said Javid in his resignation letter, as reported by the BBC. “The tone you set as a leader, and the values you represent, reflect on your colleagues, your party and ultimately the country.

Conservatives at their best are seen as hard-headed decision makers, guided by strong values. We may not have always been popular, but we have been competent in acting in the national interest.” Continued Javid: “Sadly, in the current circumstances, the public are concluding that we are now neither.

The vote of confidence last month showed that a large number of our colleagues agree. It was a moment for humility, grip and a new direction.
