Several British ministers have said it’s likely they’ll become short timers if Boris Johnson wins the competition for leadership of the Conservative Party – and thus becomes prime minister of the United Kingdom, according to the Times.
Justice Secretary David Gauke has promised to resign from his post after Prime Minister’s Questions next Wednesday if Johnson wins the election for Conservative Party leader in the July 22 competition. Chancellor Phillip Hammond and International Development Secretary Rory Stewart have said it’s likely that they’ll join Gauke in departing the government if Johnson wins.
