Despite his hopes to the contrary and promises to deliver Brexit by October 31st, Boris Johnson’s reign as Prime Minister couldn’t really have got off to a worse start with some arguing that it’s the worst in the history of the position as he failed to win any of his first three votes and completely obliterated his majority.

Surprisingly, things have continued to get worse today as even his own brother seems to have turned against him and his plans for the country. Jo Johnson is business minister and Tory MP for Orpington, Kent, but feels he can no longer continue in either role as he’s torn between family tension and the national interest.
He tweeted his resignation as you can see:
It’s been an honour to represent Orpington for 9 years & to serve as a minister under three PMs. In recent weeks I’ve been torn between family loyalty and the national interest – it’s an unresolvable tension & time for others to take on my roles as MP & Minister. #overandout

Damn that’s salty isn’t it and pretty much massively implying that Boris isn’t acting in the national interest at all. Should be pretty fun sitting around their family dinner table this Christmas. Would be a great reality TV show, although I guess that’s kinda what we’re getting with Brexit at the moment isn’t it?
For more of the same, check out Boris vowing to make Britain the greatest place on Earth. Good luck with that one.
