Poll finds that majority think Johnson should resign

A snap poll by Opinium has found that 53% of the public think Boris Johnson should resign over the Downing Street party scandal.

The prime minister has maintained that no rules were broken, but the same poll found that only one in ten believed this.

Worrying for the government, a third of Conservative voters also said Johnson should resign. SNP spokesperson Ian Blackford called for his resignation today during Prime Minister’s Questions.
