EXCLUSIVE: Lord Cruddas urges Boris Johnson to WITHDRAW resignation  

LORD Cruddas has urged outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson to withdraw his resignation as a new poll reveals the majority of Tory members are unhappy at the way he was removed from office. 

A new YouGov poll revealed that 55 per cent of members “believe it was wrong to oust the PM in July amid a dramatic spate of resignations.”

Nearly half of them say they would vote for Mr Johnson if he was included on the leadership election ballot and many believe he would make a better leader than either Truss or Sunak, the Express reported.

Lord Cruddas, who is backing the Boris on the Ballot campaign told Politicalite that the PM would become more popular if he withdrew his resignation.

“Boris would become more popular if he withdrew his resignation. He would be showing that he is listening to the membership and respecting democracy.” said Cruddas.

“It would also put two fingers up to the 1922 Committee and the anti-democratic constitution of the Conservative Party.”

“Come on Boris you will have the support of your Party and the country. Withdraw that resignation”

Last week, the Tory lord urged the PM to “take back control” of the Tory leadership race and “fight like Churchill”

“He can ask the members through a restructuring of the board whether they still want him as their leader, to fight the next General Election.”

“It’s up to Boris to decide whether he wants to fight for the 14 million people who voted for him or move on with his life.”

In a direct message to the PM, Cruddas added: “Over to your Prime Minister, this is your Churchill moment.”
