The Ministers of Health and Finance, Sajid Javid and Rishi Sunakrespectively, have presented their resignation on Tuesday, after losing confidence in the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

“It was a privilege to be asked to return to the Government to serve as Minister of Health and Social Care at such a critical time for our country,” Javid wrote in a letter addressed to Johnson, who questions the motion of confidence he had to face last month.

Thus, Javid has defended that, although the conservatives have been “competent in acting in the national interest”, in the current circumstances, “unfortunately”, the population believes that they are no longer so, as shown by the fact that “a large number” of ‘Tory’ deputies will vote in favor of dismissing Johnson.

“I am sorry to say that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under his leadership and therefore he has also lost my confidence,” said Javid.

For his part, Sunak has done the same when considering that Johnson does not meet the standards of conduct that are presupposed to a UK Prime Minister, after the latest scandal involving the Christmas parties held at number 10 Downing Street in the midst of a pandemic.

The leader of the opposition in the United Kingdom, the Labor Keir Starmerhas assured that the Johnson Government “is collapsing” after the resignation of the ministers.

“It is clear that this government is collapsing. The ‘Tory’ ministers have known from the beginning who the prime minister was. They have been their cheerleaders throughout this unfortunate saga,” Starmer said in a statement released by the British media. .

For Labor, the ministers “have been his accomplices at every step, as he dishonored his position and defrauded the country. If they had an iota of integrity, they would have left months ago.”
