the job of a prime minister in difficult circumstances when he'd be handed to can also by the is the keep going on that one. it immediately afterwards sauntered job. it the cabinet minister who was the 1st to quit on tuesday, returned to parliament to explain his decisions and peace. and with the prime minister listening javert didn't pull any punches. at some point, we have to conclude that enough is enough. i believe that point is now the final straw was downing street handling of complaints against this man crisp pincher bench who was given a government job despite previous allegations being upheld about him making unwanted sexual advances to male staffers. but as johnson claimed, he didn't know about the past misconduct. in fact, it emerged that johnson had been briefed in person about it. the situation is fast approaching a tipping point, where surely biased johnson's position becomes untenable. but this is
6:04 am
a prime minister, possessed of almost visceral stubbornness, seemingly impervious to the criticism of even close colleagues, and he will not leave this place willingly. a question was posed directly during johnston's appearance before the commons liaison committee just on a very human level. he only you must know that is in the country's interest for you to leave now. and i look at the, um, the, the pressures of people who are under the need to go to focus on the, on, on, on their priorities. i look it out the biggest war in europe for, for a he is. and i call for the life of me seem who, how it is responsible just to, to walk away from that ousting a prime minister is no trivial matter with so many choosing to resign rather than serve with this prime minister. his situation really does start to look on survivable. you said question then becomes how to actually remove him from office in pull brennan, al jazeera downing street. and i've been barbara has more now on the latest departures from boris johnson's government will on wednesday night news. none of

the resignation, but a surprise sacking. of course johnson, getting rid of mike who goes his minister leavening up it had been reported earlier on. the go for told maurice johnson before prime minister's question was in parliament that he should go a lot of anger. there apparently, but all through the day, those dozens of members of parliament resigning and that was not enough to convince baris johnson to budge. he was even told by some cabinet members that enough was enough. he is clinging on one of his parliamentary, private secretaries, insisting that he has a mandate and reportedly he and he's new chancellor. dean's a, how we preparing to present a new plan for the economy next week will next week as well on monday, were expecting a meeting of the background, 1922 committee at which they will try to change their rules,
6:06 am
which will allow another vote of no confidence in the prime minister, but the prime minister's support is still saying it's unclear what will happen there. and even if the prime minister did lose a 2nd vote of no confidence whether in fact he is going to to say yes, i will reside what he's saying is that that would cause chaos and that he needs to get on with repairing the economy. he says he has a mandate from 14000000 people. we can expect some more developments in the coming days. but for now the prime minister staying put the cap price of the former u. k. government advisor. she says the crisis of expose differences and policy, but in johnson and it's for the finance minister. what we have seen is that the public is getting increasingly concerned. and quite a lot of, of the opinion polls recently, unless of surveys done by various organizations, including the british chambers of commerce, for example. and the work done by the consideration of british industry do suggest that there are serious concerns right now about the way forward and the fact that
6:07 am
everyone is beginning to really wonder where some of the growth may come from in the future. expecting the government to intervene and do a little bit more. and i think it's interesting what the ex chancellor is really talking about because there is no doubt that they've been differences between watch number 10 and the prime minister wanted to see. and what the treasury that reaching to not represented was concerned about. so the prime minister wanted to see tax got more support to the economy because he was quite aware of what the population is thinking right now. the war in ukraine hasn't helped tool, but the treasury was very concerned about some of the costs of those tax cuts might mean and wanted to postpone them for a while until they saw how things were developing, particularly in the global environment and energy prices and food prices, so there was a rift, there's no doubt about that, but that's pretty cool and has been pretty common in the u. k. so there's no new
6:08 am
that the self is not a reason for resigning. normally, for ministers in the world, leading economies are gathering in indonesia for talks, overshadowed by the war in your crime. for some of them, the g 20 meeting will be their 1st encounter with moscow foreign minister. since the russian invasion, robert reports from the island of bali holding the presidency of the g 20 ended easy as president joker. we, dodo has positioned himself at the center of global events after meeting with leaders of the g 7. last week. he undertook shuttle diplomacy between the competence in the ukraine war, seeing for himself, the destruction in the town of a pin. outside the capital cave sang that it's very sad, a lot of houses and infrastructure are broken. we hope no other ukraine cities would be ravaged because the war then to moscow for talks with russian president vladimir putin as a leading force in the so called non aligned movement of nations. indonesia
6:09 am
believes it could act as a bridge between the 2 sides of participation in, hey, tanya, in meeting will be a very valuable opportunity for the russian government to address a position to the rest of the world. and which is not only advantages to put in government and russia, but it may be quite conducive to all warring party in the ukraine crisis rush. it's foreign minister said a lover of is due to hold bilateral meetings with some of his counterparts, but significantly not with us secretary of state and city lincoln. the last time the 2 met was in a tense encounter in january when love rob gave his assurance, russia had no plans to invade ukraine. a month before a day, just that the g 20 came into being in part to deal with the fallout from economic crises that the g 7 couldn't handle on its own, especially in recent times,
6:10 am
this gathering takes place as the world is now facing the perfect storm of global challenges, the ukraine war threatens a worldwide food crisis and didn't denisia like many countries is heavily reliant on grain from the region. the war is also helping push up energy costs that are driving inflation. added to that ongoing tensions in the indo pacific with china increasingly confronting its neighbors, a nato at its last meeting, promising to push back. in this idyllic island setting the world is looking for solutions to some nightmarish scenarios with any signs of progress. be welcome right now. rob mcbride, al jazeera barley and jessica washington joins us live now from barley. jessica, so we're hearing about this perfect storm of global problems. so was likely to be topping the agenda today that well,
6:11 am
that's exactly right. darren is and as rob mentioned in his story, it is worth remembering that the g 20 is a very diverse group of nations. unlike the g 7 and part of the challenge that indonesia and the indonesian president joke over dodo face as they hold the g. 20 presidency this year is navigating some of those differences in perspective. on the one hand, we have countries like the u. s. and it's western allies that have pushed for a hard line against russia. but on the other, we also have countries like china, india, and indeed indonesia that have long standing friendly relationships with russia. and so the challenge for indonesia is to navigate those differences and those risks within the group. indonesia has flagged that it would like to focus on economic recovery and in fact, has planned it's t 20 presidency around this theme of recovery together, recover a stronger saying that the focus really should be on moving the world forward. now that hopefully the worst of the panoramic is over that, of course, the shadow of the war and ukraine link is over this foreign ministers event. and it
6:12 am
is likely to dominate the bilateral talks as they take place today. and continue into the week that we know that some bilateral meetings have already taken place, but other foreign ministers are yet to arrive in bodily regarding some of the special sessions which will take place during this week. we know that indonesia also wants to focus on the food crisis. yesterday, the foreign ministry put out a statement, ma, remarking that food security and energy security are key priorities that the g 20 must find solutions to overcoming these challenges. particularly for the developing countries that have been worst effected by these issues. now what remains to be seen is whether or not this week of meetings will be successful and productive as indonesia. hope this is really the 1st high profile event of indonesia, the g, 20 presidency, and will help set the tone for the rest of the g. 20 events later this year,
