Johnson evades resignation question
BORIS JOHNSON has refused to say whether he would resign if he fails to win a majority in Thursday’s General Election.
The Prime Minister’s highstakes decision to call the snap vote could hand Jeremy Corbyn the keys to Number 10 – making
Mr Johnson one of the shortestserving PMs in British history.
But, in an interview with Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday, Mr Johnson would not be drawn when asked three times if he would stand down.
When asked if he would resign if it did not go his way, he replied: “The choice on Thursday is unbelievably stark, it’s between going forward with a one nation Conservative government that can get Brexit done...
“Or spending the whole of next year in complete paralysis with two referendums, one on Scotland, one on the EU, when Jeremy Corbyn cannot even tell us what his position is on Brexit.”
