This definitely isn't going away.



Well done Mr Ross.

Glad he's had the integrity to do this. Will be interesting to see if any bigger names, or MPs in safe seats, follow.

I'm not aware of Ross standing and worth as an MP, but the fact he's done this suggests he does have integrity as you say. We don't want people like that to resign though, it'll just weaken the Tories further as happened with the Great Purge of sensibles last autumn. That's not good for anyone.

What a shame and irony that the actions of the vile elite can result in there being fewer decent politicians, as those with morals and decency no longer wish to be a part of it, so the vile get stronger still.

Fair play to him for realising he doesn't wish to work under the employ of such people.

Nice (and unusual) to see a Tory with a conscience and integrity.

I don't imagine that any of the self important members of the inner cabinet will change their tune though.

And when you no longer have collateral the bank calls in your mortgage and you lose the roof over your head.

When a junior minister resigns and people have to Google his name, it rarely has an impact.

It would really need to be someone far more senior to have an impact.

That may well happen yet.

I think we'd need to see at least 2 cabinet level ministers resign for it to cause anymore damage to the govt.

I suspect the core team was canvassed prior to yesterday's press conf.

So what is the logic of resigning, does he have principles or is he a stalking horse for a challenge to Johnson's position?

I'm not saying he is wrong to resign, he is acting as he sees fit.

I'm just saying that his resignation is unlikely to have much material impact.

According to The Times the cabinet weren’t even told it was happening.

They’re treated with just as much contempt as the rest of us (but they are far more deserving of it).

Interesting.

I guess the next move depends on whether anyone fancies becoming the next PM at the moment. Doubtful I would have thought.

Agreed, not sure any of them are strong enough or principled enough to make a stand.

Most of them are already punching way above their weight and they know it.

Yesterday I saw a frontline NHS doctor on the news who says he will resign if Cummings doesn't quit by a certain date. I think there are several more NHS doctors considering doing this also. If it gets to that stage and the 2nd wave media storm that will undoubtedly follow how on earth could he continue with his job. He'll be ridiculed and jeered everywhere he goes.
