More than 50 people have left the British government under the leadership of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, according to Sky News.
Pensions Minister Guy Opperman resigned. He said he was particularly upset by the government's lockdown party scandal, as he lost his twin children during the pandemic and was unable to visit his wife at the time, but supported the prime minister as he wanted to see real change at cabinet.
In a letter to Johnson, Opperaman noted that subsequent events have made it clear that the government simply cannot work under your leadership.
Thus, the Minister of Pensions became the 51st official to resign.
