Ex-Labour MP thinks Boris Johnson will resign upon return from holiday

Thelma Walker, the former Labour MP for Colne Valley in West Yorkshire said via Twitter this morning:

“My prediction is that Johnson will resign on return from his jollies.”

In response to a user who questioned her opinion, she wrote: “Just think the holiday is part of a planned exit.”

The prime minister currently holidaying at a Spanish villa linked to Conservative peer Zac Goldsmith, who is reportedly a close friend of Carrie Johnson.

Walker lost her seat in the to Jason McCartney of the Conservatives in the 2019 election. She had previously unseated him in 2017.

In November 2020 she resigned her membership of the Labour Party on the evening after Keir Starmer declined to return the whip to Jeremy Corbyn.
