The UK’s chancellor of the exchequer, Sajid Javid has resigned over a disagreement.
He had at the time been ordered by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to fire some of his advisors.
A source said: “He has turned down the job of chancellor of the exchequer. The PM said he had to fire all his special advisers and replace them with No 10 special advisers to make it one team. The chancellor said no self-respecting minister would accept those terms.”
Sun journalist Tom Newton Dunn said “It has only been six months since Boris Johnson appointed Sajid Javid as chancellor.
“But even in that six months the relationship has changed.
“Some of Mr Javid’s advisers felt there was a little too much respect going on and that Mr Javid was behaving like the PM’s little brother.
“That changed as the days went on.
“And Downing Street clearly decided it wanted to be in total control.”- Agencies/BBC
