Kortstzittende Britse premiers

By Phil Bainbridge

July 7, 2022 - Despite talk of running for a third term just days earlier, Boris Johnson has been forced to resign as British Prime Minister.

His term is narrowly exceeded by that of his predecessor, Theresa May, who has been a frequent critic from the backbenches, and matches that of Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister who famously signed a peace treaty with Nazi Germany before eventually taking the country to war.
