A Bradford MP has called on the Prime Minister to resign after branding his Government "morally bankrupt". 

Since entering 10 Downing Street, Mr Johnson has been tasked with Brexit, the cost of living crisis, a pandemicDominic Cummings drama, the Sue Gray report on the partygate scandal, rail strikes and much more.

Mr Johnson's latest political puzzle to navigate relates to two major cabinet resignations from health and social care secretary Sajid Javid and Chancellor Rishi Sunak.

It marks the 1,077th day of the Prime Minister's premiership, almost level with the 1,078 days spent in office by Neville Chamberlain, the Conservative prime minister between 1937 and 1940.

Reacting to the shock announcement, Imran Hussain MP (Labour, Bradford East) said: "Even the Tory Health Secretary admits, Boris Johnson's Government is morally bankrupt and collapsing in on itself.

"Johnson should do us all a favour and resign now."

It echoes calls from Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who said Mr Johnson was unfit to lead.

Mr Starmer said the resignation of top ministers “means nothing” after months of complicity.

Sir Keir told broadcasters: “He is unfit to be Prime Minister. He is not fit to govern the country.

“That is dawning on many people across the Conservative party, but they have to reflect on that, that they have backed him for months and months and months.

“Resigning today means nothing against their complicity for all those months when they should have seen him for what he was, they knew who he was.

“We need a change of government.”

But Brexit Opportunities minister Jacob Rees-Mogg has backed the Prime Minister, adding: “losing chancellors is something that happens”.

Offering a broad sweep of British political history, with references to the fortunes of former prime ministers Lord Salisbury and Harold Macmillan, he played down the impact of losing a chancellor.

“The Prime Minister won the vote. The thing about democracy if is you win the vote, you’ve won and that I think is fundamental,” he said, referencing the recent confidence vote in Boris Johnson.

Meanwhile Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries backed the PM, tweeting: “I’m not sure anyone actually doubted this, however, I am 100 behind @BorisJohnson the PM who consistently gets all the big decisions right.”
