Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid RESIGN from Cabinet and call for Boris Johnson to quit

Boris Johnson faces the fight for his political life today as he battles fresh resignations and a brutal Commons showdown.

In the worst possible start, Will Quince and Robin Walker both quit as education ministers early this morning along with top transport aide Laura Trott.

More resignations are expected to flood in today as the PM's enemies smell blood and seize their chance to push him out of No10.

Mr Johnson is desperately clinging on after Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid spectacularly wielded the knife yesterday with devastating Cabinet resignations.

He faces a gruelling double-whammy pasting as he gears up for PMQs followed by a grilling by the Liaison Committee.

Mutinous Tory MPs could rub salt into the PM's wounds at what will be a brutal Commons showdown at noon.

And at 3.30pm he will endure further probing by a firing squad of senior MPs eager to haul the embattled PM over the coals.

Desperate to stem the tide of rebellion, new Chancellor Mr Zahawi toured TV studios urging MPs to throw down their knives.

He said: "All I would say to my colleagues is people don't vote for divided teams."

It came after rising start Tory MP Ms Trott quit as an aide to the Transport Secretary.
