Boris Johnson resigns as MP with immediate effect

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned from the position of Member of Parliament. 

The foreign media reported that it was revealed that false information had been provided to the committee that investigated the parties held during the Covid period. 
The committee found former prime minister had misled the House of Commons and recommended lengthy suspension. 
In his statement, Johnson hit out at political enemies for targeting him after he was shown the privileges committee findings against him earlier this week. 
“It is very sad to be leaving parliament – at least for now – but above all, I am bewildered and appalled that I can be forced out, anti-democratically, by a committee chaired and managed, by [the Labour MP] Harriet Harman, with such egregious bias,” he said. 
“Their purpose from the beginning has been to find me guilty, regardless of the facts. 
This is the very definition of a kangaroo court.” Johnson’s dramatic move came on the day Sunak cleared a resignation honors list for him, including more than 40 peerages and other rewards, for some of his closest allies from the time of the Partygate scandal.
