However, those who say this ignore that being an official is not just a title, but the power to use resources - because as long as you are in position, you can arrange your own people, serve your own relationship or faction, and at the same time (whether or not opponents inside or outside the party) isolated from abundant resources. This is why Johnson is reluctant to leave the prime minister's seat easily even if he resigns as party leader. As I write this article, news reports that Johnson will present a (almost resigned) new cabinet list later on.
In other words, the resignation of the official is not only his own business, but also affects the people he supports and the boss who covers industry email list him, and these are the keys to determining whether he can continue to sit firmly and even rise to the next level. In the past gentleman era, many people resigned and stepped down because of some trivial matters. Today, politicians gradually see through all this - as long as I don't leave, no one can force me to leave.
