SIMON Hoare, MP for North Dorset, has said that if Boris Johnson had “any self-respect" he would resign. 

Mr Hoare also revealed the rules of the 1922 Committee should be changed to allow MPs another chance to kick the Prime Minister out of Number 10. 

Mr Johnson suffered two major cabinet losses last night, with the resignation of chancellor Rishi Sunak and the health secretary Sajid Javid.

Since then, many more Tory MPs have publicly withdrawn their support for Mr Johnson. 

Speaking with the Daily Echo, Mr Hoare said: “If Boris has any self-respect or any interest in the wellbeing in the country and its reputation, and the wellbeing and interests of the longer-term reputation of the Conservative party for once in his life, he is going to have to go. 

“His role is hollowed out, with a weakened government. It is not sustainable and I am not prepared to put my name to it.” 

Mr Hoare added the rules of the 1922 Committee should be changed to get the PM out. Mr Hoare added: “I don’t think it’s a question of whether now, but how.  

“He’s either going to be kicked out or carried out. He may walk out but it’s one or the other, not if.

“I know there are colleagues that are feeding into the chief whip and into Number 10 directly; don’t bother calling me because the answer is no. I won’t be serving and I don’t want to be a minister. 

“This is the end of the days kind of stuff, in a Roman Empire sort of way.  

“The 1922 Committee reflects the mood of the parliamentary party. The question one has to ask is ‘has the mood and temperature changed in those few short weeks since the vote of no confidence?’ 

“Even a deaf, blind, dumb mute would say it has changed. We’ve lost an ethics advisor, a party chairman, a chancellor, a health secretary, several ministers, a party vice-chairman, we’ve lost two by-elections in fairly spectacular fashion and the government has lost its credibility.” 

Mr Hoare revealed he has submitted a letter to the 1922 Committee, withdrawing his support of the PM. 

He said in a statement: “This will come as no surprise to those who know me but I have written to Graham Brady asking for a rule change governing the holding of confidence votes and a further confidence vote to be held.  

Change is needed & needed now: for the sake of our country, my constituents & my party.”
