British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resign

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared outside No. 10 Downing Street on Thursday to announce he planned to resign after facing pressure from a party revolt.

“It is clearly now the will of the parliamentary Conservative party that there should be a new leader…and therefore a new prime minister,” Johnson said from a lectern outside the steps of the British prime minister’s office and residence, surrounded by news cameras.

A crowd had formed as Downing Street staff and supportive lawmakers gathered to listen to the embattled premier’s speech. His wife Carrie, carrying one of their children, stood at the doorstep as well.
