Three ministers threaten to resign if Boris Johnson is elected prime minister of the United Kingdom. Johnson is a favorite in the British premiership race. His opponent Jeremy Hunt is far behind in the polls.
According to the British newspaper The Times, David Gauke (Minister of Justice), Philip Hammond (Minister of Finance) and Rory Stewart (Minister of International Development) are working on their letter of resignation to immediately after his appointment as Prime Minister Theresa May to Boris Johnson. On July 23, it will be announced who will be the new resident of Downing Street 10, the official residence of the British Prime Minister.
Johnson has already said several times during the election campaign that he wants to leave the European Union on 31 October, even if this requires a no-deal Brexit. He is even willing to send the parliament home to push this through.
