Boris Johnson to axe top team to save own skin as he faces more calls to resign

Reading now: 624

Boris Johnson is reportedly preparing to axe members of his inner circle over the partygate affair as another Conservative MP calls for him to resign.

The Prime Minister is believed to be devising a policy announcement blitz and a cull of his top team as he looks to survive the publication of senior civil servant Sue Gray's report into lockdown-busting parties in No 10, The Sunday Times reported.

Martin Reynolds, the Prime Minister's principal private secretary who sent an email inviting staff to "bring your own booze" drinks in the Downing Street garden during the first covid lockdown, and his deputy Stuart Glassborow are likely to be forced out of Downing Street, according to the newspaper.

No 10 chief of staff Dan Rosenfield's position could also be at risk but officials in No 10 refused to be drawn on the reports of a staff shake-up when these were put to them.It comes as a sixth Conservative MP on Saturday called for Johnson to quit over the way he has handled the revelations.
