BORIS JOHNSON is set to resign as UK Prime Minister “imminently” following days of outrage from MPs.
The PM will “make a statement to the country” today, a Downing Street spokesman said this morning.
An official in No.10 confirmed Mr Johnson will announce his resignation, but spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.
In an assassination with echoes of Margaret Thatcher’s removal, several Cabinet members lined up in No10 to demand Boris Johnson quits.
It came after nearly 60 Tory MPs – including a slew of Ministers today – resigned in protest at the PM’s battered leadership, which has spiralled since the Chris Pincher scandal.
