Social media users cannot keep still following the resignation of Britain Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The Conservative Party leader resigned today following a wave of government resignations.

Last night, Mr Johnson said he intended to stay and fight.

But the avalanche of resignations from government ministers continued through to Thursday, with letter after letter criticizing the scandal-hit leader and imploring Johnson to step down.

The globe has since received the news with mixed reaction.

Some tweethearts said it was a step in the right direction considering the scandals that rocked his leadership.

Others couldn’t help but troll the 58-year-old politician.

Johnson’s departure marks a remarkable downfall for a Prime Minister who was once seen as having political superpowers, with an appeal that transcended traditional party lines.

He won a landslide victory in December 2019 on the promise of delivering a Brexit deal and leading the UK to a bright future outside the European Union.

But his premiership unraveled in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.
