After just shy of three years in the role Boris Johnson is finally set to resign as prime minister as his tumultuous tenure, mired in scandals and controversy comes to an end.
On Tuesday, senior ministers Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid both announced that they were resigning from the cabinet, thus triggering a huge wave of resignations with more than 50 MPs saying that they could no longer support the prime minister.
Johnson stubbornly tried to cling on to power and tried to appoint a new minister but he was running out of people to rely on. He also claimed that he had been given a mandate by the British public thanks to the overwhelming majority he achieved at the 2019 general election.
However, his position had become completely untenable thanks to his new ministers also calling for him to resign after just a few days in the job. Now Johnson has resigned it's fair to say that Twitter is having a field day or should that be days... (even though he's still going to be around until the Autumn...)
