UK finance minister says will quit if Johnson becomes PM

AFP  |  London 

British finance minister Philip Hammond said Sunday he would make a point of resigning before Boris Johnson became prime minister, saying he could never agree to his Brexit strategy.

"I'm sure I'm not going to be sacked because I'm going to resign before we get to that point," he told BBC television, assuming that Johnson will be named prime minister on Wednesday.
