Top British cabinet members resign

Sajid Javid and Rishi Sunak have announced their resignations almost simultaneously

UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid have resigned on Tuesday as ongoing scandals plague the Conservative party and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The pair have issued a call for Johnson to quit, declaring he is no longer worthy of leading the country.

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

Sunak struck a similar tone, declaring that “the public rightly expect government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously” – implying that the current administration was none of the above.
