Former United Kingdom High Commissioner Alexander Downer says that although he has seen massive resignations from the government, he has “never seen it like this”.

Mr Downer’s comments come after as many as 60 MPs resigned from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government within 48 hours.

“When prime ministers are overthrown, as we know in Australia, it’s very dramatic, but in this case Boris Johnson really held back and tried to put down the demands he resigned,” he told Sky News presenter Peta Credlin.

“There has just been an avalanche of events that have just turned against him, including these ongoing scandals over the behavior of Conservative MPs.”
