Less salary is one of the reasons that many people want to quit their jobs and join another company. However, if this is the case for leaving the post of the Prime Minister of the country — the matter is really surprising! The current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has expressed such a surprising desire.

It is learned that Boris Johnson told his close aides that his salary is “very less” and he could have made more money if he had not been the Prime Minister. He said he even cannot run the family expenses with so little money. 

In a recent interview, Boris Johnson said his salary is “very less” and he could have made more money if he had not been the Prime Minister. He said he even cannot run the family expenses with so little money. After that, he said he is also “thinking about resigning”.

An international media outlet quoted MP from Johnson’s party, told that Johnson no longer wanted to be the prime minister. Currently, his annual income is  £150,402. But before becoming the prime minister last year, he wrote columns for The Telegraph. He used to speak in seminars. 

By doing all this, he was earning £23,000 per month. He even earned £160,000 a month for speaking at two seminars. But before that, he used to earn £275,000 a year by writing a column in a newspaper.

Whitehall sources told the media that Boris Johnson wants to resign next spring. For this, he will be in power for another 6 months so that Brexit can be completed completely.

An MP said the prime minister had to pay his six children £42,500 a year. Johnson is concerned about this cost. 

The MP added that some of Johnson’s six children are too young. They have to give financial support. On the other hand, according to the divorce agreement, he has to pay a large amount of money to ex-wife Marina Wheeler. 

However, another MP claimed that Boris Johnson had long dreamed of becoming prime minister. 

Even though all this is said about Boris Johnson, 10 Downing Street has denied the allegations to Metro. However, they declined to comment further.

It is worth to be mentioned that government officials and former prime ministers can make a lot of money by making statements and attending various events. MPs think Johnson is concerned about the earnings of his predecessors in the country.

In particular, former Prime Minister Theresa May has been earning more than one million pounds since her resignation last year. Former Prime Minister David Cameron is taking £120,000 for each lecture. On the other hand, another former prime minister, Tony Blair, currently owns around 22 million pounds through his consultancy activities and speeches.
