Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid QUIT with savage attack on Boris’s ‘lack of integrity’, competence and leadership in brutal resignation letters – as embattled PM admits it was a mistake to appoint sleaze MP Chris Pincher as deputy chief whip in grovelling BBC interview

Boris Johnson is tonight teetering on the edge as Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid both quit his Cabinet within minutes of each other.

Shortly after the Prime Minister issued a grovelling apology over his appointment of shamed MP Chris Pincher, Mr Johnson was hit by the double blow.

In his resignation letter, Mr Sunak told the PM that ‘we cannot continue like this’.

And Mr Javid publicly questioned Mr Johnson’s competence and ability to act in the national interest.

He told the PM: ‘The tone you set as a leader, and the values you represent, reflect on your colleagues, your party and ultimately the country.

‘Conservatives at their best are seen as hard-headed decision-makers, guided by strong values.

‘We may not have always been popular, but we have been competent in acting in the national interest.

‘Sadly, in the current circumstances, the public are concluding that we are now neither.

‘The vote of confidence last month showed that a large number of our colleagues agree,

‘It was a moment for humility, grip and new direction.

‘I regret to say, however, that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership – and you have therefore lost my confidence too.’
