Prime Minister Boris Johnson may have resigned as leader of the Conservative Party but he will remain as PM until autumn.

A snap poll last night of Conservative Party members on the Conservative Post website show an overwhelming majority (93%) had confidence in Boris Johnson and wanted him to carry on as their leader.

The man responsible for delivering Brexit, orchestrating a world leading vaccine deployment, getting us out of lockdown and leading the world against Putin has today stood down from the Conservative Party after 57 ministers turned against him.

A swathe of MPs took their move to oust the PM after Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid dramatically called time earlier this week.

Thanks to Boris Johnson since leaving the EU, the UK has now signed over 70 new free trade deals with Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan saying more countries are “queuing up” to get post-Brexit deals with Britain.

In 2019 Mr Johnson saw off the socialist threat posed by Labour and Jeremy Corbyn when he won his historic 80-seat majority at the general election.

Just one month later he delivered on honouring the result of the 2016 EU referendum as he “got Brexit done.”

The PM then led Britain through the pandemic before helping the country get back on its feet with the UK’s world-leading vaccination rollout.

In recent months the Prime Minister has led the world in coordinating the West’s united response to standing up to Vladimir Putin for his invasion of Ukraine.

Six years since the referendum, the British economy is also outperforming the eurozone’s. UK had growth in 2021 of 7.4% (versus 5.3% in the eurozone) and in 2022 is predicted to be 3.7% (versus 2.8% in Europe).

No 10 source this morning said:

“The Prime Minister has spoken to Graham Brady and agreed to stand down in time for a new leader to be in place by the conference in October.

“The Prime Minister will make a statement to the country today.”

Mr Johnson stepping down as Conservative Party leader is less than three years after first entering Downing Street in the top job.

The Uxbridge MP entered Downing Street to replace Theresa May on July 24 2019.

  1. Such a sad day Boris is the best prime Minister of our time, he has worked tirelessly for our country in challenging times, and for that what has he got, from the BBC M.S.M and everyone else who has no thought or care for this country, and no backing or support from his younger conservative Members, no respect from anyone the knives have been out good and proper, uncomfortable to watch and through it all he has never been disrespect full to anyone(Don t know he hasn’t punched someone) he is a true gentleman , and no way deserves the treacherous treatment and back stabbing he has been delt, I and my husband voted for Boris Johnson and on that more cancellating my membership and TV licence.

  2. Boris is one of the three best prime minister’s this country have ever voted into power. The other two are Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. All three have the balls to stand up to dictators. Hitler, Gallerie, and Putin.
    May, Major and Blair, but to name a few are completely incompetent.

  3. I think this was trial by media. I think to be pm you have to be either a) vestal virgin b) a robot or c) God.

    However, those who are disappointed and disillusioned by what has happened to Boris Johnson need to remember why they voted for him in the first place. For many, that was to do with Brexit and immigration. There is no other party than the Conservative Party that will deal with them.

  4. I have never felt such despair at the resignation of a British Prime Minister as i do today! In fact, I am extremely emotional and terrified for the future! Boris had such vision, stamina and personality to tackle any disaster thrown his way! He battled to protect the inhabitants of the UK during Covid while trying to help keep businesses afloat. He acted quickly to ensure the UK had their fair share of the vaccines by ordering even before they were ready to go. That put us miles ahead of the rest of the world. He has battled to kick start the economy. Unfortunately the war in Ukraine has hit the world economies hard – how some people think that this effect on our pockets is the fault of Boris I will never understand! Boris was the first to realise the dangers of allowing Putin to push forward into Europe. His reaction and actions have won the praise and admiration of President Zelensky and other eminent Prime Ministers, Ministers and other dignitaries across Europe and the greater world.
    Even while all this is going on he has continued to encourage growth of our industries and improve the job prospects of people. He has even tried to help people with their rising fuel bills. I have known no other Prime Minister to do this.
    We are going to rue the day that WE allowed the MSM, Opposition and traitors from our own party to force this coup and bring our leader down!

    I have just completed the poll asking if members still had confidence in Boris Johnson as Prime Minister. The results of that poll shows a STAGGERING 93% of the party members who completed the poll still have CONFIDENCE IN BORIS JOHNSON AS PM!

    Is there no way the members can influence what has happened and return Boris to power? I am heartbroken 💔 and disillusioned in my party!

  5. I am devastated at the way Boris has been treated. He has more integrity in his little finger than anyone else in the Tory party and certainly the Labour party. Shame on you for joining the media, BBC and labour.
