Nadine Dorries claims that Boris Johnson was removed by a 'coup'
Laura Kuenssberg has compared the fall of Boris Johnson to the children's game Jenga.
Speaking to Vogue about the days that preceded Johnson's resignation, the former BBC political editor said he crashed "quickly and really messily" in the last days of his premiership, just like the game in which players take it in turns to remove bricks from a tower until it falls.
“I think it’s clear that until very late that last night, there was a real sense of denial," she said, on Johnson losing his grip of the Tory party.
She added he lost power because of “his personality and behaviour” before making the Jenga comparison.
“One piece comes out, and then another, and it gets wobblier, then it stabilises, but then when it actually crashes it crashes really quickly and really messily,” she said.
