As a politician Boris Johnson seemed propelled by his own ambition, rising to prime minister. He won an era defining general election in 2019 where he smashed Labour's Red Wall after he promised to 'Get Brexit Done'. But after guiding Britain through the COVID-19 pandemic his leadership was beset by a series of scandals, leaks and lies. As Boris lurched from crisis to crisis, his downfall still came as a swift and unexpected surprise. Sebastian Payne tells the essential behind-the-scenes story, charting the series of scandals that felled Johnson; from the blocked suspension of Owen Paterson to Partygate, and finally the Chris Pincher allegations, which were the final death blow. This is the full narrative of the political betrayals, rivalries and resignations that led to the dramatic Conservative coup.
