Boris Johnson plans to quit as prime minister

Downing Street was today forced to deny an extraordinary claim that Boris Johnson is planning to quit as Prime Minister in six months time due to his health – made by Dominic Cummings’ father-in-law.

Sir Humphry Wakefield is said to have told a holidaymaker who visited his castle in Northumberland that the Prime Minister is still suffering longer-term ill effects of coronavirus.

The baronet, 84, a former soldier and interior designer whose journalist daughter Mary is married to top aide Mr Cummings, likened the Prime Minister to a horse that is made to work while injured, leaving it permanently lame, according to the Times.

‘If you put a horse back to work when it’s injured it will never recover,’ it reported him as saying.

No10 this morning said the claim Mr Johnson would step down was ‘total nonsense’.
