The prime minister has defied calls to resign despite a fresh wave of ministerial resignations, a scathing attack by former Cabinet minister Sajid Javid and signs that support on the Tory backbenches is ebbing away.

The Downing Street "exodus" has since been perfectly encapsulated by internet poet Brian Bilston, who has won acclaim for poems such as 'Frisbee' and 'Love Poem' among others.

His verse about the No 10 walk-out is similarly hilarious.

He says even the "wallpaper has peeled itself off in protest", while the "Gilt-edge mirrors offered looks of resignation".
