The real reason for Boris Johnson’s resignation from the Cabinet has now been revealed – Theresa May would not allow him to go to Moscow to watch the World Cup final.
“The Russians are poisoning British citizens,” said the Prime Minister.
“It would not have been appropriate for our Foreign Secretary to go to Moscow to watch a football match.”
Johnson was convinced that England would get to the final and so gave Theresa May an ultimatum.
“I said that either she lets me go to the final or I would resign,” said Johnson.
“She wouldn’t budge so I resigned. I wanted to be in Moscow to see our boys give the French a good thrashing.
“As it turned out we lost to Croatia, so I needn’t have resigned but don’t worry… I’ll be back.”
