Four of Boris Johnson’s closest associates have resigned, marking the latest blow to the embattled British Prime Minister who sought to reset his government in the wake of the Downing Street ‘Partygate’ scandal that has jeopardized his position.
Munira Mirza, Johnson’s long-standing chief of policy, Chief of Staff Dan Rosenfield, Private Secretary Martin Reynolds and Director of Communications Jack Doyle all left their posts within hours of each other on Thursday, days after a scathing investigation revealed multiple parties were taking place in Downing Street as the rest of the United Kingdom lived under strict Covid-19 lockdown rules.
Doyle confirmed his departure shortly after Mirza’s departure. They were followed by Rosenfield and Reynolds, the BBC reported Friday. (PTI)
