Boris Johnson resigns as party leader following mass resignations of his own officials

Boris Johnson has resigned as leader of the conservative party in the United Kingdom, saying “no one is indispensable” following mass resignations by senior and junior officials in his party, according to a Guardian report.

Johnson has said that he was also told by his party that he had lost their support following a myriad of scandals that has been plaguing his administration.

He plans to stay on as Prime Minister until a suitable replacement can be found. Johnson’s resignation seems to have finally ended the unusual standoff within the Conservative Party with several members having called for his resignation for months.

Johnson last month (June 6th), barely won a no confidence vote in the UK parliament that saw 41.2% of the conservative members of parliament voting against its then leader.

    Steve, I wish you read the following!

    As for Man Dog and ds, I know they are practically blind, and that is why I am trying to get this at the very top. Now be reminded I said the Dominica born crook Scotland was convicted in England for employing an illegal immigrant as a domestic servant in her house.

    So, Roosevelt boy, and puppet ds, say I lie, Man Dog too!

    Well, the following as quoted was submitted by “Malatete” so, to the blind ones if I the Wesley kid lie, how do you two junior sons of the corrupted crook Roosevelt Skerrit account for what Malatete posted?

    Interestingly Boris Johnson was not voted out by the citizens of Uk neither was he pressured by the opposition. It was his own ministers that decided to put country first and resigned one after the other. Why did his ministers quit on him? First they were not paid to run and they they showed they were men and women of integrity who put country first and ministers do not have to think of the possibility of spending time in jail.
    In Dominica we see the opposite. Skerrit cannot resign no matter the situation because he has to think of what will surely follow him the day he is not able to hide behind office secondly, he has a bunch of corrupt, greedy and bought out ministers and most of them know their future will not not be one where they can go smoke their pipe but rather they know they too will follow Skerrit in a dark room

      @FBI, if you had grasp of British politics you would have realised that the props of Boris Johnson who supported him during the vote of no confidence motion, did not turn on him this time around because of integrity, but because they feared losing their seats at the next election. Boris Johnson was popular with the voters because a majority of UK voters wanted to exit the EU but once this novelty had faded, so did Boris’s popularity because he proved to be a lying, deceitful, dishonest, untrustworthy, conniving, erratic and clueless leader and the longer they kept him in power the more their chances of winning the next election faded. So it was more about self preservation rather than backbone and integrity.

    That is what happens when the institutions are bigger than the men and women who gain thier power because of these institutions. When there is no integrity and honor within the affairs of the institutions honest noble men must come to that decision and quit. It is important to self regulate. The British system has lasted this long as a result. The cabinet of Dominica should pay attention. Today 64k a month in rent is one of the on going scandals yet the whole cabinet like a bunch of misfits pulled on a string.

      Lin Clown, lies are a condemnation of men; each lie you told in the past, and in that quote to which I am responding is condemning you to damnation into the pit of hell!

      “Boris Johnson said Baroness Scotland should not be reappointed:” (Lin Clown). Tell that to the idiot Toto; I would also like to tell the idiot Toto that every idiot have the right to hang themselves.

      I think any name that fool wish to call me the person should hang it around their neck! So, let me get back to you clown; in Dominica, you and Roosevelt supporters like thievery, corruption and lies!
      We do not know Johnson stole anything, but I am here to inform you that the main reason Boris Johnson is rejected by the British is because of one lie too many.
      He is a notorious liar, only Roosevelt is worst than him.

      Note: “After the latest in a series of scandals prompted a rebellion by members of his Conservative Party, Mr. Johnson said he would step down. ( The New Times).

        If you would stop lying for a bit and do some research you would find where Boris himself admitted to lying, when he made the claim that an offence committed by someone he appointed, he did not know about; when in fact he knew.

        It is something as simple as that which cost Boris Johnson his leadership of the party, and ultimately his job!
        Lying is a very dangerous thing; stealing is a felony, punishable by serving jail term. There are thieves; especially one lying and stealing in Dominica, yet you the red devils make a god out of him!
        Where are your morals?

        Keep in mind serving just three years, of his five year tenure as prime minister, the disgraced said no one is indispensable, he recognized his services are not wanted by the people, and he must leave.

        In Dominica Roosevelt flaunts his corruption in your faces, while he gets richer, the country gets poorer, yet the idiots sings “we love our prime minister!

        Only in Dominica such rogues and corrupted people are…

      Do, not forget that woman Scotland is a convict; she is convicted in England for employing an illegal migrant.

      The Job she has now does not relate to England; however has everything to do with corrupted nations of the world, most precise, Dominica and places like Antigua, where her parents are from; and nasty Dominica where she was born.

      And that is why the thieves vagabonds, and scamps of the Caribbean supported her!

      All of her support came from the bare-face-liars and corrupted crooks such as Roosevelt Chichi Royer Skerrit, and the crook Gaston Brown, another crook who went from rages to riches days after he became Antigua’s prime minister.

      The people of England refuse to indulged in the support of corruption, and crooked behavior.

      Boris Johnson has not done 1/8 of the things corrupted Roosevelt Skerrit has done, yet he is kicked out into oblivion where his name will be written on the tarnished pages in the political book of history!

          Steve, that Dominica born woman, was a member of the Labor Party in England, when she employed this illegal immigrant in her home as a domestic servant.
          The matter went to court and the corrupted crook Roosevelt friend was found guilty in a court in England where she where she was sanctioned, and had to pay a fine.

          Now I am not suggesting that her illegal employee walked free, but I know for a fact, that crooked Dominic scoundrel was sanctioned!

          Birds of a feather flocked together; no wonder she and Roosevelt are such good friends.

          Murders, and thieves associate; politicians associate; no wonder boy.

          That crook is the one who dressed up Skerrit in some ancient medieval, antediluvian time costume and had some boys tie a sash around Roosevelt neck and waste, and said they Knight him!

            “Scotland denied she had been so busy with her work that she simply assumed Tapui had the right to remain and work in the UK because her husband, Alex Zivancevic, was a lawyer and spoke with an English accent.”

            Steve, do you believe that bull in the quote above?

            This woman is a damn liar, busy with her work; accent or no accent or no accent, everybody; every employer in England and America, and Europe, Germany where I lived also.

            When ever someone is about to employ someone, one of the final questrions will be do you have a social securiety number?

            That is to ensure social securiety and other deductions are extracted.
            Then on the application, their place of birth must be declared.

            Steve that woman is a damn joke and a liar, and that is the reason I do not like he, I dis like her even more after she told Dominican they can suck salt, that’s the only patios word her “Antigonian” parents knew to teach her; she’s a convicted criminal!

      The British Commonwealth is headed by the Queen and entirely in her purview. It has nothing to do with the British government of the day. Baroness Scotland, although elected by the member countries, is not appointed by the Queen and merely acts as the Queen’s representative. Her Majesty is aware of the Baroness’ insult to the people of Dominica, as disclosed by Angelo Allen in correspondence from Buckingham Palace some years ago, and certainly is not her kfavourite. The Baroness knows this too and has enveigled herself with likes of Prince Charles, the successor to the throne who himself is now embroiled In the unsavoury practice of accepting cash, €300,000 to be exact, in plastic bags from a prominent Qatari friend. It is claimed by this royal that they were contributions to his charity and passed straight on to his bank, Couts, in London. Contributions to an approved, registered charity are not subject to tax, neither in the U.K. or Dominica for that matter.

        In that case I would like to asks you what happens to the governor’s which represents her on the island of Antigua, and Barbados until recently?
        Although Dominica is within the commwealth of nations, Elizabeth, does not have any say in the political business in The Commonwealth Republic of Dominica, and that’s why we have a rubber stamp president Charles Saverin.
        Guyana, Trinidad, are Republic too with their president, and now Barbados, which laws are signed in for tabled law to take effect.
        In all of the other independent islands with a governor representing this so called queen signs anything into law on her behalf.
        Outside of Commonwealth matters she has no say over Republic such as ours.
        Sad to that corrupted crooked, Me Almost Nearly Cousin Roosevelt have all the power.
