According to local media, Conservative leader Boris was tried on several occasions on Wednesday by members of his cabinet to convince him that it was time to leave. But in response, he fired Communities Secretary Michel Gove.

He reportedly first told Boris that he should now resign for the betterment of the Tory party and the country. A source close to Johnson told the BBC that Johnson was saying Gov turned out to be a snake.

Gove played Boris’s right-hand man in Britain’s 2016 Brexit referendum campaign, but then dramatically fought for Conservative leadership in the same year against Boris, and again in 2019 in a battle for Conservative leadership .

The Sun newspaper said Johnson had told his colleagues that he would “have to paint his hands with blood” to get him out of the office.
