On Tuesday evening, Sajid Javid resigned as health secretary and Rishi Sunak resigned as finance minister. Both people declared that they could no longer put up with the scandalous culture that has followed Johnson for months.
At the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions session, which will take place in the House of Commons at 1100 GMT and is expected to be much more explosive than usual, they will now sit on the Conservative back benches.
The chairs of the Commons’ most influential committees, who include some of Johnson’s vehementest detractors from the ranks of the Tories, will then quiz Johnson for hours.
Sunak and Javid left their positions shortly after the prime minister expressed regret for having appointed a top Conservative who resigned last week after being accused of drunkenly abusing two men.
