Sajid Javid quit Boris Johnson’s government after concluding “enough is enough”, telling MPs: “The problem starts at the top and I believe that’s not going to change.”

UK prime minister Mr Johnson watched on in the Commons as his former health secretary said he feared the reset button was no longer working and “something is fundamentally wrong”.

Conservative MP Mr Javid, making a personal statement setting out his reasons for his departure, wished his Cabinet colleagues well but warned them: “Not doing something is an active decision.

“I’m deeply concerned about how the next generation will see the Conservative Party on our current course; our reputation after 12 years in Government depends on regaining the public’s trust.

“This is not just a personal matter, the philosophy and perception of Conservatives depends on it.”

Mr Javid opened his statement by insisting he is “not one of life’s quitters” and stressed his enthusiasm for public service.

He said he had planned “so much for the long-term reform” of the health and care services, adding it is a “wrench to leave that work behind”.

 

After stressing the importance of integrity, Mr Javid said he is “instinctively a team player” but said: “Treading the tightrope between loyalty and integrity has become impossible in recent months.

“I will never risk losing my integrity.”

He added: “I also believe a team is as good as its team captain and a captain is as good as his or her team. So, loyalty must go both ways.

“The events of recent months have made it increasingly difficult to be in that team.

“It’s not fair on ministerial colleagues to go out every morning defending lines that don’t stand up and don’t hold up.
