UK PM Boris Johnson confirms resignation amid government collapse

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed he is leaving office a short while ago, following many cabinet appointments calling for him to resign.

Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi, who was given the job two days ago, said the situation was “not sustainable and will only get worse”.

And Education Secretary Michelle Donelan quit, saying Mr Johnson had “put us in an impossible situation”.

Johnson earlier insisted he has a “colossal mandate to keep going” and therefore will not resign.

The wave of resignations from the government and party exceeded 50 on Thursday, as Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis became the first cabinet member of the day to quit, quickly followed by seven other ministers.

Previously loyal supporters – including Priti Patel and Grant Shapps – urged him to step down on Wednesday.
