LONDON (LONDON) Boris Johnson served as British Prime Minister for just three years.He stayed on the sidelines for months after being chastised by scandals, but was compelled to resign on Thursday, despite being forced to do so by his own staff.Following Theresa May's resignation, Brexit figurehead Johnson is appointed leader of the Conservative Party in July 2019 following a landslide victory over foreign minister Jeremy Hunt.Queen Elizabeth II has appointed him prime minister, promising a prompt exit from the European Union.The United Kingdom officially exits the European Union on January 31, 2020, three-and-a-half years after the referendum.Johnson declares a UK-wide shutdown on March 23 as the virus spread around the world.He declares to have tested positive for Covid four days later and has mild symptoms.He is admitted to the hospital on April 5 and the next day to intensive care, thanks to two immigrant nurses for saving his life. Johnson is accused of illegally funding the lavish renovation of his official Downing Street flat when his deposed former chief advisor Dominic Cummings settles cases.In by-elections, Johnsons Conservatives gain ground against the main opposition Labour party, including in Hartlepool, a historic Labour stronghold in northeast England.Several revelations about the manipulation of government offices in Downing Street emerged in early December as a result of repeated coronavirus lockouts.An outraged group of people accuses him of double standards, many of whom are deprived of seeing sick and dying relatives due to social distancing laws. Johnson also reported that the police had fined him for breaking the law on April 12, the first for a sitting prime minister.His explanations vary, but he maintains that he did not deceive parliament, which is normally a resignation issue.Johnson's fame is plummeting as a result of the Partygate probe, as well as a failed attempt to save Owen Paterson's political career, which was convicted of corruption as an MP.In May 5 general elections, Britain is overwhelmingly opposed to his Tories, who are now facing a cost-of-living crisis as a result of the Ukraine war. However, more than 40 percent of Tory MPs agree that Johnson should not be supported.Johnson's woes are compounded by a string of sex scandals involving Tory MPs.One member of Parliament is arrested on suspicion of rape and a former member of Parliament was sentenced to 18 months in prison in May for sexually assaulting a teenage teen boy.In June, opposition parties won two by-elections in seats that previously had been held by Tory MPs accused of sexual harassment. Johnson was appointed as an official by the Court of Justice after being in the dark about allegations of sexual harassment against Pincher.Rishi Sunak, the minister of finance, and Sajid Javid, the health minister, decide that they have had enough of defending the scandals and resign on July 5.A slew of senior ministers, ministerial aides, and other Cabinet ministers follow suit, declaring that Johnson's position is untenable.
