At the same time, Boris Johnson was criticized for not doing enough to help the British people, who are facing rising fuel and commodity prices.

After the scandal came to light, Rishi Sonak resigned as Finance Minister and Sajid Javed as Health Secretary.
Sajid Javed wrote in his resignation text that “it is clear that this situation will not change under your leadership so you have lost my confidence.”
“I am sorry to say that my conscience does not allow me to continue in this government,” he wrote. The British people expect their government to be honest.
In addition, a survey by the British research and data firm UGO found that 69% of British citizens believe that Boris Johnson should step down as Prime Minister.
