'Enough is enough': Ex-minister's parting blow to Johnson

HISTORY: Javid resigned Tuesday night (July 5), in what became the first in a series of resignations by ministers who said they had lost confidence in Johnson and said he was unfit to govern.
Javid is considered a possible contender to succeed Johnson should he resign or be forced out of office, out of the doubt.
Just minutes earlier, an ebullient Johnson had vowed to keep fighting, telling his dour-faced lawmakers he would remain an election winner.

Javid said it had not been fair to send government ministers to defend Johnson over various media scandals over the past few months.
Eleven British lawmakers have left Johnson's government in less than 24 hours, including Javid and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak, saying the British leader no longer has their confidence.
The resignations follow allegations Johnson misled the public about what he knew about sexual harassment allegations against a Conservative lawmaker.
