Turning away: Jo Johnson.

Jo Johnson has announced he is to stand down as a member of Parliament in what can only be seen as an attack on his brother Boris’s premiership.

In a tweet he said he had been “torn between family loyalty and the national interest” – implying that he does not consider his brother’s behaviour since becoming prime minister to have been in the interest of the nation.

At the time of writing it is not clear whether Jo Johnson is leaving the government immediately or at the next general election – whenever that may be.

He has been attending cabinet meetings as universities minister, and was promoted despite having voted to remain in the European Union and being much more pro-European than his brother.

The ramifications of this may shake the Tories even more than BoJob’s removal of the Tory whip from 21 MPs on Wednesday evening.
