This had been signposted by Cameron refusing to give Schapps his full backing. This is unusual, as such resignations are usually preceded by the prime minister expressing full confidence in a minister.


Grant Shapps resigns over bullying scandal: 'the buck should stop with me'

Grant Shapps, a former Tory chairman, has resigned from the government in disgrace in the wake of revelations that he had been warned about bullying in the party before the death of one of its young activists.

He was forced to quit as a minister for international development after the father of 21-year-old Elliott Johnson claimed his son would still be alive if Shapps and Andrew Feldman, the current Tory chair, had behaved responsibly when made aware of the behaviour of one its senior organisers.


A spokesman for the prime minister said he had full confidence in Feldman, a longstanding friend of Cameronís.
