The growing pressure on Johnson has made his position impossible thus making him one of the shortest-serving Prime Ministers of the UK in modern times, only slightly better than Gordon Brown who held office for a little under three years.
Johnson was elected in 2019 following Theresa May who served as Prime Minister for three years and eleven days, just 35 days more than Johnson as of Tuesday.
Initially elected to replace May following her failure to pass three Brexit withdrawal agreements, Johnson assumed office in May 2019 and since then has been met with intense backlash from people who believe Johnson is unfit to serve as Prime Minister.
\u201cBoris Johnson has been prime minister for 1081 days. 35 days less than Theresa May managed at 1106 days. \n\nIt looks like will be one of the shortest serving Prime Ministers in British history.\u201d

However, it wasn't until Tuesday afternoon that the idea of a Johnson resignation became more feasible. Other Members of Parliament called on Johnson to resign citing various scandals that rocked the Conservative party over the last year.
