Boris Johnson faces budget rebellion from furious Tories over brutal ousting of Sajid Javid


TORY rebels are plotting a budget battering for Boris Johnson after the brutal ousting of Sajid Javid.

Mr Javid, Britain’s first Asian Chancellor, resigned in fury after the prime minister demanded he fire all of his advisers.

According to the Mail on Sunday, the backlash comes over Mr Javid’s bombshell decision to resign amid an ongoing feud with the PM’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings.

It culminated in the mandarin launching a surprise power-grab for the Treasury leaving the Chancellor’s tenure in tatters.

Their fallout was sparked when the spin chief unceremoniously sacked a member of Javid’s senior staff over an explosive leaking row last summer.

Now angry MPs are plotting to strike back against the marauding mandarin by voting against measures in the upcoming Finance bill.

Mr Johnson is in no danger of losing the vote, but MPs are keen to give him a bloody nose after the bloody axing of all and any dissenters.

There are said to be around 20 to 30 willing to vote against the government, with one saying it was to bash the regal arrogance of the court of King Boris.

Another added: It looks as if the criteria for a job is a proven track record of being ready to do whatever Boris or more likely, Dominic Cummings tells you.

The rebellion will be about putting a marker down to Boris that we’re not cannon fodder.

Given his words about Brexit and restoring the importance of our Parliament, he’d be wise to pay attention to it.

Mr Javid was one of several huge casualties from a bloody day in Westminster, with Andrea Leasom, Geoffrey Cox, Esther Mcvey and Julian Smith all booted out of the PMs inner circle.

Both women, along with Mr Javid, had faced up the PM in the Tory leadership contest last year.

Mr Javid was replaced by Rishi Sunak, 39, an up and coming member of the Treasury who was seen arriving at Downing Street moments after the shock announcement.

Other newcomers include Suella Braverman, who has been named Attorney General, and Anne-Marie Trevelayn, who was appointed Secretary of State for International Development.
