Boris Johnson apparently wasted no time berating Rishi Sunak after he and Sajid Javid sparked a landslide of resignations last night.

The prime minister is said to have shadowed his ex-chancellor’s economic policies at a meeting of 80 loyal Tory MPs.

According to Guido Fawkes, he told them: “I know you are all eager for tax cuts and tonight’s events might make implementation a little easier.”

His alleged remark came after Mr Sunak told him in a shock resignation letter that “the public has a right to expect the government to be properly, competently and honestly run”.

“I realize this could be my last ministerial post, but I believe these standards are worth fighting for and that is why I am resigning,” the former cabinet minister wrote.

Mr Sunak acknowledged that the couple have different approaches to managing the country’s purses.

He said: ‘In preparation for our planned joint business speech next week, it has become clear to me that our approaches are fundamentally too different.’

In less than 24 hours, Mr Johnson faced 28 resignations with his government crumbling around him before his eyes.

These include two cabinet ministers, 13 ministers, 10 parliamentary private secretaries, one deputy chairman and two trade envoys.

But the British leader has refused to step down, claiming the “enormous mandate” given to him by voters in 2019 means he should carry on despite the “difficult circumstances” he is facing.

He was forced to issue a humiliating apology last night after finally being forced to admit he knew of allegations of sexual misconduct related to Chris Pincher when he made him Deputy Chief Whip.
