Boris Johnson’s new education secretary has quit her post just two days after being appointed, as the Cabinet meltdown continues
Michelle Donelan said she had “no choice” to leave the Cabinet and that the prime minister had put his colleagues in “an impossible situation”.
She is among over 50 Tory MPs to leave government jobs in the last 36 hours over Mr Johnson’s conduct.
Ms Donelan’s resignation leaves the Department for Education with zero ministers just weeks away from A-Level results day on 18 August this year.
She quit shortly after the Mr Johnson’s new chancellor Nadhim Zahawi, also called on the prime minister to resign – though he has stayed in his role.
