Piers Morgan slams Boris Johnson for bragging and cursing, calling him a ‘truly terrible prime minister’

PIERS Morgan has branded Boris Johnson a “truly terrible prime minister” just moments after he resigned.

The Tory leader quit under fire today after a devastating revolt by his MPs led to mass resignations and mounting pressure on his job.

Last night the Prime Minister ignored calls for him to go and warned Tory rebels they would have to “get their hands wet” if they wanted to get him out.

But Mr Johnson has now stepped down amid mounting pressure over his handling of a string of scandals, the latest being the Chris Pincher fumbling storm.

Boris suffered more than three dozen frontbench resignations in 24 hours, including the departure of his chancellor and health minister.

And Piers didn’t mince his words, writing on Twitter: “Boris Johnson ends as he led – boasting, blustering and blaming everyone but himself.

“What a terrible closing speech from a man who turned out to be a truly terrible Prime Minister.”

The outgoing Prime Minister addressed the nation from Downing Street today, where he announced his “painful” decision to quit, admitting simply: “These are breaks.”

He added: “The herd instinct is powerful in Westminster and when the herd moves, it moves.

“And my friends in politics, no one is anywhere near indispensable.

During his resignation speech, Johnson said he would stay on as prime minister until a successor is in place, which is expected by the Conservative Party conference in October.

The incumbent leader said he tried to remain prime minister because he felt it was his “duty” to continue what the Tories had promised in 2019.

Talk TV presenter Piers tweeted earlier today: “For the love of God Boris Johnson – resign!”

He described Johnson’s decision not to leave as “humiliating” and called on him to “pack his bags and get out of Downing Street”.

It comes after Piers rubbed salt into Johnson’s wounds with a huge ad in Parliament yesterday.

A truck advertising Piers Morgan’s Uncensored cruised through the streets of Westminster, shouting: “Is the party over for party boy Boris?”

And last night Piers made a sensational appearance holding a live pig on his show as he took a shot at the outgoing Prime Minister on his Uncensored show.

It’s not the first time Piers has been highly critical of Boris, who previously branded the Partygate scandal “corrupt”.

Back in May, Piers urged Johnson to resign after a photograph was released of the prime minister raising a glass to No 10 during the lockdown.

Johnson also sacked Michael Gove late last night in what appeared to be a show of strength.

However, after mishandling a series of Westminster scandals, Boris lost the trust of a significant portion of his party, which ultimately cost him his job.

And without being able to run a functioning government, that meant it was nearly impossible for him to revive the economy.

He was expected to carry out a reshuffle today before taking to Downing Street to resign.
