British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received a recent blow yesterday when senior minister Amber Rudd resigned as a sign of protest over the man’s handling of the Brexit crisis.

His resignation added to the week-long heat that Johnson faced as he tried to navigate the country in the midst of the post-World War II crisis.

Rudd was a moderate member of the Theresa May-led government re-elected by Johnson when he took over the administration in July.

But the woman said yesterday that she could no longer tolerate the way Johnson was used in negotiations with Brussels or the way the Prime Minister dealt with local politics.

I have resigned from the Cabinet and submitted the Conservative WIP, said Rudd.

“I can’t stand it when loyal, good and moderate Conservatives are removed”, she said on Twitter, referring to Johnson’s sacking of 21 Conservatives from the Party for voting against Brexit in parliament.

Rudd in his resignation letter said he was unhappy with Johnson’s commitment to leading Britain to leave the European Union (EU) on October 31, even if both parties failed to reach an agreement.

The 56-year-old said he once viewed Johnson’s threat of ‘bad’ separation as a useful tactic for negotiating with Brussels.

“I no longer believe, that the agreement is the government’s main objective”, Rudd said.

“The government is spending a lot of time preparing to deal with the possibility of ‘no deal’ but I do not see the same commitment shown in the EU negotiations”, she said in the letter.
