Sajid Javid has said he was left with “no option” but to resign as chancellor after the prime minister insisted he replaced all his staff.
During Boris Johnson’s Cabinet reshuffle Mr Javid was asked to stay in post, but on the condition he “replaced all” his political advisers.
“I don’t believe any self-respecting minister would accept such conditions,” he said.
