There were also signs of a slight drop in support for the government’s handling of coronavirus situation in the country.
More people in the United Kingdom think Boris Johnson should resign as prime minister than continuing in office, according to the latest Opinium poll for the British weekly Observer.
The first poll of 2021 found that 43% thought he should resign, while 40% said that he should remain as leader, reports British daily The Guardian on Saturday.
However, most Conservative voters (87%) think Johnson should stay on as leader, while only 7% though otherwise. Meanwhile, just 20% believed Keir Starmer should resign as Labour leader in contrast to 52% saying he should remain as leader, the report said.
