“U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson could be ousted from power within the week, after a longtime ally compared him to Neville Chamberlain in a stunning rebuke in the House of Commons on Wednesday,” Axios reports.
Said former minister David Davis: “I expect my leaders to shoulder the responsibility for the actions they take. Yesterday he did the opposite of that.”
Davis concluded with a quote from Leo Amery to Neville Chamberlain: “You have sat there too long for all the good you have done. In the name of God, go.”
Meanwhile, the BBC notes Tory MP Christian Wakeford left the Conservatives and walked across the floor to join Labour in another dramatic moment.
