Boris Johnson was told Wednesday to resign as government ministers hid from the media. The prime minister is under serious pressure to divulge whether or not he attended a “bring your own booze” party in the No10 garden on May 20, 2020, UK media outlets said.

Wednesday will be the toughest day of his leadership yet with mutinous Conservatives saying he should quit if he broke lockdown rules.

It is rumored that Johnson could make a statement in the Commons before prime minister’s questions kicks off at midday.

It is the second time in a month that ministers have been pulled from interviews due to devastating revelations of parties in Downing Street.

Last month ministers ducked the media after a leaked video showed government aides joking about a “fictional” Christmas party in 2020. The scandal resulted in the resignation of senior aide Allegra Stratton.

On Wednesday morning Lib Dem leader Ed Davey said Johnson should quit over the latest claims if he had “any shred of decency left in him”.

The former cabinet minister told the BBC: “Boris Johnson is now incapable of leading our country through this public health crisis. I actually think he is a threat to the health of the nation, because no-one will do anything he says because he has now shown to have been deceitful, so Boris Johnson must now resign.

“He said to parliament and to the country before Christmas when he was apologizing that he didn’t know about the parties, and now we know he was at at least one of those parties. “So, he has clearly lied, he has broken the ministerial code, he has broken the law.”
