Johnson administration hit hard by resignation of two senior ministers amidst most recent scandal; prompts wave of further resignations

CNN reports that the Conservative Party administration of the United Kingdom was hit with two sudden resignations by senior ministers on Tuesday amidst the government’s most recent scandal centered, unsurprisingly, around the embattled Prime Minister and party leader Boris Johnson.

The resignations prompted a wave of junior officials within the government to resign with at least one doing so via live television.

The blow came Tuesday when two ministers resigned within mere minutes of each other following the revelation that Johnson was aware of assault complaints against the recently ousted deputy chief whip Chris Pincer.

Boris’s administration previously denied any prior knowledge of evidence of wrongdoing on Pincher’s part.

This latest episode follows ongoing turmoil over Johnson’s own blatant violation of his government’s COVID-19 rules and the subsequent no confidence vote brought against Johnson – the still current Prime Minister.

    That is the level of stupidity,stupid people want to inject into the majority of Dominicans.Nobody has resigned from the cabinet of Roosevelt Skerrit since he became Prime Minister.Nobody has asked to resign as Prime Minister or DLP leader.In the next election UWP is going to lose 2 seats,with Roosevelt Skerrit as PM and leader of the DLP.I guess UKDominican was comparing LintonLinton with Boris Johnson.The problem with UWP is,they believe everybody is confined to a cell of ignorance and stupidity.

    Boris Johnson will hang on by hook or crook. There is enormous pressure in the U.K. from his own party to resign but this man shows all the signs of a dictator just like Roosevelt Skerrit, who cheats and lies as he sees fit. Apparently he told his one time mistress, who had an abortion for him that he admires kings that had absolute power and did not have to bother with voters. He is now packing he cabinet with yes men and women to replace the ones that have abandoned him but we do have a real working democracy in this country and it is parliament that makes laws and not any prime minister and many of his own party will not support him, that was clear in the House of Commons today. Boris Johnson character is like that of Roosevelt Skerrit but he will not get away with it unlike Dominica’s leader.

    Boris Johnson will Iive to see another day. He is the proverbial cat with nine (9) lives. He has gone through similar adversaries and came out of them smelling like a rose.

      At least Boris thinks differently than you and your BOY. He, Boris make sure his brain is in gear before opening his mouth.. ALL the same, one should not try to down press anyone in any way shape or form. He wanted to see the down fall of the Scotland Lady. See what is happening to him now.

        Trump was evicted from the White House by the American voters; Boris Johnson’s reign was terminated by his own Cabinet members; Roosevelt ( the nakedly corrupt charlatan), will be booted from the Office of the Prime Minister where he illegally squats.

        After he is removed, the office should be thoroughly fumigated to get rid of the lingering odour of the rotten corruption which took place during his tenure.

        Only an unlearned, indecent, cold-blooded, rotten person would shower praise on such a diabolica,l inhuman being.

        No surprise that a mental invalid like you, KID, worships him.

      They are all falling down one by one except Roosevelt Skerrit. Skerrit is a champion without any fight. If you can’t run de country, Boris, then call in Skerrit.

        Nothing ever lasts forever. Only hardened, unenlightened fools think otherwise. Roosevelt, the man of garbage bins and fertilizer corruption, will meet his Waterloo sooner than you think.

      Why can’t Roosevelt Skerrit come out smelling like a rose also with all the adversaries he has been through and comes out of them? I guess it is only the white man who can smell like rose, not the black man. Something is telling me you are a racist against your only black brother. Pray for the black man, brother. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Skerrit will live to see many more happy days.

      Dog Abuser, you and your ghost writer should seek assistance before you post any comment. Your writing is so embarrassing. You continuously posting this garbage is as though you are defecating on yourselves but proud of it.

      It’s mind-boggling to think that in this age of enlightenment two persons can still be so functionally illiterate.
