The Housing Secretary was just one of a number of Cabinet colleagues today pleading with the No10 incumbent to give up and quit.
Home Secretary Priti Patel, Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis and Welsh Secretary Simon Hart were among the Cabinet ministers telling Mr Johnson to stand down.
Dozens of MPs have quit the Government in protest at Mr Johnson’s leadership today, urging him to step aside for the good of the Conservative Party.
It followed the resignations of Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid from the positions of Chancellor and Health Secretary respectively last night.
A snap YouGov poll last night found 69 percent of Britons thought Mr Johnson should step down as Prime Minister, including a majority, 54 percent, of 2019 Conservative voters say.
Less than a month ago, just 34 percent of those who backed the Tories at the last election wanted the party leader to stand down.
