UK Political Drama: Boris Johnson’s Resignation as PM
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigned as Conservative Party leader on Thursday after being abandoned by his close allies in the aftermath of a series of scandals rocking his government, triggering a leadership contest for a new Conservative leader who go on to become his successor.
Johnson addressed a crowd of supporters and onlookers at the lectern outside 10 Downing Street, “It is now clear that the parliamentary Conservative Party wants a new leader, and thus a new prime minister.”
Boris Johnson did not become emotional, nor did he apologize for the behaviour that had brought the 58-year-old politician to this low point. Instead, he blamed his demise on his party, comparing his colleagues to stampeding animals.
Johnson finally gave up his attempts to cling to power after nearly 60 members of his government resigned – nearly half the payroll. Even so, the Prime Minister insisted on remaining as a caretaker leader while the Conservative Party began the process of selecting a successor.
Even that, according to some senior figures in his party, will be unsustainable, given the decreasing number of people willing to work for him. Others are already lining up to take his place.
