In last week’s PMQs, the Prime Minister thanked Labor Party leader Sir Keir Starmer for having been “considerably less deadly than other Members of this House” during his time as an opponent.

Then he added: “In three years, despite all the opportunities, he never really came up with an idea, a plan or a vision for this country.”

Commenting on his resignation, Mr Johnson said: “It is absolutely correct that I am not leaving at a time of my choosing.

“But I’m proud of the fantastic teamwork that has been involved in all these projects, both nationally and internationally.

“And I’m also proud of the leadership I’ve given and I’ll be leaving with my head held high soon.”

Mr Starmer is likely to target the remaining candidates for the Tory leadership today, as well as the Prime Minister himself.
