The resignation of Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid dominates Britain's papers on Wednesday. "Johnson on the brink" headlines the Times after the ministers walked out in what the paper describes as a "coordinated move that dealt a potentially fatal blow" to the prime minister. The paper reports Boris Johnson's opponents are intending to change the party's leadership rules to push for a second confidence vote before May. Seven in 10 Britons say Mr Johnson should resign, according to a YouGov poll highlighted by the paper.
Comparing Mr Johnson to a "greased piglet", over his ability to escape seemingly impossible situations, the Daily Mail asks if he will be able to "wriggle out of this?" The paper described Tuesday as the "most dramatic night in Westminster" since the toppling of Margaret Thatcher. Calling the resignations a "coup attempt", the Mail reports the prime minister was last night locked in Downing Street plotting his survival in a "fight for his political life".
The Daily Telegraph describes Mr Johnson as "hanging by a thread" following the walkout by the high profile Cabinet ministers and several junior ministers. The paper reports on the prime minister meeting with 80 Tory MPs last night in a pre-arranged meeting in which he indicated tax cuts would now be easier to deliver "in a swipe at Mr Sunak". It comes after the ex-chancellor in his resignation letter hinted thT Mr Johnson's plan to both raise spending and cut tax were unrealistic.
The resignations from Boris Johnson's government come after he admitted he knew of sexual misconduct allegations against MP Chris Pincher before promoting him to deputy chief whip. Tory MPs have also told the Financial Times the prime minister told them he was more likely to propose early tax cuts now that Mr Sunak had gone. The paper notes markets will be watching what the change in chancellor will mean for economic policy, including the possibility of a looser fiscal regime that could force the Bank of England to raise interest rates.
Boris Johnson "dismissed a failed coup" and now has a "moment of liberation" to make sweeping tax cuts, is the Daily Express's take. The paper adds following the resignations he displayed a "resolute and determined manner" and declared the government was now free to pursue "a true-blue Tory agenda" paving the way to a general election victory.
"Going! Going! Gone?" headlines the Metro as it poses the question whether the prime minister will now resign. It reports Mr Javid wrote in his "bombshell" resignation letter the prime minster had lost the country's confidence, and "it is clear this situation will not change under your leadership".
"End game" says the i newspaper as it describes Mr Johnson's premiership as "on the brink". The prime minister has been left "reeling" after the shock resignation of his chancellor and health secretary, the paper says. It reports Nadhim Zahawi has been made chancellor and Steve Barclay the new health secretary.
The Mirror splashes with a picture of Mr Johnson at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday before the resignations were announced. It describes the departures as the "end game for Boris". It says Mr Sunak and Mr Javid "wielded the knife" after years of backing the prime minister's "toxic government". It adds the "doomed" premier" is now "desperately clinging to power".
