UK PM Boris Johnson says he wants to stay in power until 2030s

Boris Johnson has insisted he wants to be in office until well into the next decade – claiming what the government has achieved was “quite exceptional”.

Mr Johnson has been facing mounting criticism after the Conservatives’ disastrous showing in Thursday’s by-elections – among backbenchers already angry over the Partygate scandal and the cost of living crisis.

But he told reporters he was “actively thinking about a third term”.
