The Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has threatened a no confidence vote to oust Boris Johnson immediately as he cannot remain as Prime Minister as “he’s unfit.”
It is very likely that the Labour leader will hold a confidence motion in the House of Commons either today or tomorrow if the Prime Minister does not immediately leave No.10 Downing Street.
Sir Keir said, “His own party have finally concluded that he’s unfit to be Prime Minister, they can’t now inflict him on the country for the next few months.

“It’s obvious he’s unfit to be Prime Minister.
“That’s been blindingly obvious for a very, very long time.
“If they don’t get rid of him then Labour will step up, in the national interest, and bring a vote of no confidence because we can’t go on with this Prime Minister clinging on for months and months to come.”
Johnson has had 60 resignations by Thursday morning and said that he will resign as Prime Minister but will remain in Downing Street possibly until October until a new leader is elected.
Sir Keir blasted, “lies, scandal and fraud on an industrial scale,” he added that the resignation “should have happened long ago” because Johnson “was always unfit for office” and those MPs who helped keep in power “should be utterly ashamed.”
Starmer continued, “we don’t need to change the Tory at the top – we need a proper change of government.
“The Tory Party have inflicted chaos upon the country during the worst cost of living crisis in decades and they cannot now pretend they are the ones to sort it out.
“They have been in power for 12-years. The damage they have done is profound.
“Twelve years of economic stagnations, 12-years of declining public services, 12-years of empty promises.
“Enough is enough.”
