So it is an exodus, then.
Here‘s the BBC:
Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty, has stood down but did not say why.
Mr Adams, a Cabinet Office minister without portfolio under Mr Johnson’s government, had previously announced he would not be standing at the next general election – but has now brought that decision forward.
In a tweet announcing he was going immediately he said Selby Conservatives had selected a new parliamentary candidate on Friday.
It means there will be another by-election. That’s three the Tories have to manage since the beginning of Friday, including Johnson, Nadine Dorries, and now Mr Adams, who is said to have been a Johnson ally.
The Conservatives can ill afford to waste time, money and effort on by-elections when they’re struggling with the economy, the cost of living, and public opinion.
And who knows how many more resignations there will have been by Monday morning?
