Political storm: British Health, Finance ministers resign from U.K. govt

Chancellor Rishi Sunak and health secretary Sajid Javid have resigned from Boris Johnson’s government.

The chancellor said: “The public rightly expect government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously. I recognise this may be my last ministerial job, but I believe these standards are worth fighting for and that is why I am resigning.”

Mr Javid said on Twitter: “I have spoken to the Prime Minister to tender my resignation as Secretary of State for Health & Social Care.

“It has been an enormous privilege to serve in this role, but I regret that I can no longer continue in good conscience.”
