One of Boris Johnson’s Conservative MPs has become the first from his party to say that he should step down after he was fined for breaking lockdown rules.

There will be a birthday party for Mr. Johnson in June 2020. The prime minister, his wife Carrie, and the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, all paid £50 each to go to the party.

Mr. Johnson has been backed by more than 70 Conservative MPs so far.

That’s not what Nigel Mills, an MP for Amber Valley in Derbyshire, said. He said the prime minister’s position was not safe.

Mr. Johnston and Mr. Sunak have apologized but have not said if they would resign.

MrMills said: “I don’t think the prime minister can survive or should survive breaking the rules he put in place and was on TV every few nights reminding us all that we should observe.”
Those who are at the top should not set the bar too low.

“He’s been fined, I don’t think his position is tenable.”
Another Calder Valley MP, Craig Whittaker, also asked his constituents on Facebook if they thought the prime minister and chancellor should “do the right thing and resign.”

“You can’t set the law of the lands and then break them as they have,” he said.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and the first ministers of Scotland and Wales have already asked for Mr. Johnson to step down, and they want him to do so now.

While that was going on, a Conservative peer named Lord David Wolfson quit his job as a justice minister because of the government’s official response to Covid law-breaking.

Only a vote of no confidence in Parliament or the resignation of his own MPs can remove the prime minister. At this point, neither of these things is likely to happen.

Mr. He didn’t think Johnson would go, but Mills didn’t know for sure
“It seems pretty clear that he’s not going to resign and I’d be very surprised if there were 180 of my colleagues that wanted to change prime minister at this stage,” he said.

When the war in Ukraine was going on, he said that a change in leadership was also a question.

“It’s not an easy situation to be in but I suppose the French are managing to have an election in this time, there’s no particular reason why we couldn’t do a change if we wanted to,” he said.
