Coventry South MP Zarah Sultana calls on PM to follow Javid and Sunak and resign

COVENTRY South MP Zarah Sultana has called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign.

It comes after Health Secretary Sajid Javid and Chancellor Rishi Sunak both quit their roles within 20 minutes of each other.

Ms Sultana said on Twitter Mr Johnson’s ‘time was up’.

Her thoughts were echoed by Coventry North West MP Taiwo Owatemi who retweeted Mr Javid’s resignation letter before adding it was a ‘government in name only.’




Earlier today Mr Johnson apologised for appointing Chris Pincher to the role of Deputy Chief Whip and admitted it was a ‘mistake’ in light of complaints about previous misconduct.

In a letter published on Twitter, Mr Javid wrote: “I am instinctively a team player but the British people rightly deserve integrity from their Government.”


He added the tone he (Boris Johnson) set as leader and the values he represented, reflected on his colleagues, his party and ultimately the country.

“Conservatives at their best are seen as hard-headed decision-makers guided by strong values.

“We may not have always been popular but we have been competent in acting in the national interest.

“Sadly, in the current circumstance, the public are concluding that we are now neither.

“The vote of confidence last month showed that a large number of our colleagues agree.

“It was a moment for humility, grip and new direction.

“I regret to say, however, that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership – and you have lost my confidence too.”
