[Ticker] British PM faces mounting rebellion

EU Reporter

British prime minister Boris Johnson has been weakened after his chancellor and health secretary resigned in complaints about Johnson’s dishonesty. Both men — Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid — are seen as potential Conservative Party leadership contenders. The anti-Johnson rebellion comes after he lied about a fellow minister’s track record of sexual misbehaviour as well as trying to cover up a series of Covid lockdown-era illegal parties.
