Boris Johnson, UK PM, Fires Senior Minister after He Told Him to Resign
Boris Johnson, Britain’s scandal-hit Prime minister tried a rearguard offensive against the rebel cabinet and Conservative party. He fired a key ally and promised to fight on despite resignations of dozens.
It was clear that Johnson’s right-hand man during Britain’s referendum campaign in 2016 — Communities Secretary Michael Gove – was being fired from his cabinet.
Sky News’ James Duddridge, Johnson’s private secretary in Parliament, said that he was going to “see him come out fighting”, while also confirming Gove’s dismissal.
