Responding to the news that the Chancellor has resigned his position a month before the Budget is set to be delivered, Liberal Democrat acting Leader Ed Davey said:
“Boris Johnson’s reshuffle is in tatters. He has lost his Chancellor a mere month from the budget.
“Like every crisis at Number Ten you can see Dominic Cummings lurking in the background. This is the Conservatives' own unelected bureaucrat, unaccountable to the public attempting to control every part of Government.
“The Liberal Democrats will continue oppose this woeful Tory government and offer real solutions to the deep challenges and injustices our country faces.”
