Majority of Britons say Boris Johnson should resign, poll finds

Most Britons believe British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak should resign after being handed fines for breaking Covid laws, according to a new poll.

YouGov found 57% of respondents thought both the UK prime minister and his chancellor should quit after being handed a penalty as part of a police investigation into parties in Downing Street and Whitehall during Covid restrictions.

According to a snap YouGov poll, more than half of the British public believe the pair should leave government too.

Thirty per cent said they thought Mr Johnson should stay in his role, while 29% said the same for Mr Sunak.

The poll found 13% of respondents said they were not sure what the prime minister should do, compared to 14% for the chancellor.

Out of the Tory voters who were polled, more than half thought the men should not resign. The vast majority of Labour-voting participants - more than 80% - thought they should go over the Covid fines.
