UK's Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Resigns from the Boris Johnson Cabinet

  • The UK’s Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Amber Rudd, wrote a resignation letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson from the cabinet where she accused him of carrying out “political vandalism”. She also surrendered the Conservative Whip because she doesn’t support the decision of banning 21 Tory members (who are likely to vote against Boris Johnson’s no-deal Brexit Plan). Johnson has removed the 21 member of parliaments so that they couldn’t run for the election. While publishing her two-page resignation letter on her Twitter handle, Amber Rudd said that she couldn’t “stand by as good, loyal moderate Conservatives are expelled.” Rudd’s resignation comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s own brother Jo Johnson resigned from the parliament by saying that he is “torn between family loyalty and the national interest.” PM Johnson has said that he doesn’t want any pointless delay to the process of Brexit anymore and that’s why would call for a snap election on October 15.
