This Thursday July 7 was a marked day for the United Kingdom. After suffering a wave of resignations from around 50 members of his political party, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was forced to announce his resignation. It must be said that discontent had been simmering for many months in the country of Brexit, after many scandals, each more resounding than the next.
Illegal parties in Downing Street in full confinement during the Covid-19, increase in purchasing power since Brexit, expensive renovation of Boris Johnson’s apartment paid for by the taxpayer, accusations of sex scandals… The least that the we can say is that the mandate of Boris Johnson has not been a long calm river. And the consequence will have been disastrous for the Prime Minister of one of the greatest powers in the world: Boris Johnson was forced to resign as head of his political party, preventing him from continuing his role as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom .

It was therefore this Thursday afternoon that Boris Johnson showed up in his Downing Street lair to formalize the thing in front of his people. For this very special occasion, he was accompanied by his wife, Carrie, and his youngest daughter, Romy. Mrs Johnson wore a £325 red dress by LK Bennett while their little girl was adorned with a pretty yellow bow in her hair accompanied by socks with strawberries on them.
“The reason I fought so hard for the past two days is not just because I wanted to do it, but because I felt it was my job, my duty and my obligation to you. tried to persuade my colleagues that he was eccentric to change the government when we deliver so much. I regret that I did not succeed. It is painful not to be able to complete so many ideas and projects. I know that many will be relieved, and perhaps a certain number disappointed”, he declared in particular.
