Jo Johnson, the younger brother of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has quit the government, saying he was ‘torn between family loyalty and the national interest.’

Jo, the MP for Orpington and minister of state for universities and science, said he would be standing down ahead of a potential general election, which could take place as early as next month.

Mr Johnson, unlike his brother prime minister, is a Remainer who had called for a second referendum over Brexit, metro.co.uk reported.

Political pundits believe that his resignation could be ‘incredibly wounding’ for the Prime Minister who is still adamant the UK will leave the EU ‘with or without a deal’ on October 31.
