"You have lost my faith": Tired of Boris Johnson and two top UK ministers quitting

On Tuesday evening, July 5, the British health and finance ministers quit. This was a dramatic sign of their fatigue after the numerous scandals that rocked the government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Rishi Sunak (42), Finance Minister, stated that the public expects the government's conduct to be competent and serious. He posted his resignation letter on Twitter. Minutes earlier, Sajid Javid (52), Health Minister, announced his resignation. He said he had lost confidence in Boris Johnson.

In his resignation letter, Sajid Javid stated that it was "clear to me" that the situation would not change under your leadership. It was also posted on Twitter.

These resignations are occurring amid a new scandal involving Prime Minster Boris Johnson's government: The resignation of Deputy Leader Whip Chris Pincher who was responsible for parliamentary discipline for Tory MPs. Pincher has been accused of being sexy by several men.

Boris Johnson's close associate Chris Pincher admitted last week to drinking "way too much" and "shaming him and others" at a private club. He was forced to resign but remained as a deputy.

Much criticism has been directed at Downing Street for its evolving response to the new crisis. When Boris Johnson appointed Chris Pincher to the post, Downing Street was first to announce that he had not been aware of earlier allegations.

Further revelations revealed that he knew this as far back 2019 as he was foreign secretary. Boris Johnson finally admitted on Tuesday that Chris Pincher's appointment had been a mistake and offered an apology.

This latest scandal appears to have been just one more for the ministers. Last month, Boris Johnson narrowly survived an unconfirmed vote by Conservative MPs. More than 40% of them voted against him.
