Scott Balcony, who runs a T-shirt shop in Uxbridge, said: He was a complete nightmare as prime minister and as a person. And he hasn’t been away for a while. “

For the future, he said he thought the country might go “from the frying pan into the fire” and “you can see the unknown go through. All the big names are too polluted and the luggage Too many. It looks like Cameron. Maybe it’s like a discreet Penny Mordaunt. “

Silvia Hooper said: He should have gone earlier. MP should have driven him away when he had a chance [in last month’s vote of confidence].. Now it seems we have to put up with him as prime minister until September. “

She said the lack of a constitution for the past few days meant that there was no clear way to deal with the prime minister that Britain didn’t want to go to.

“But as they say in the Chinese curse, we are certainly living in an interesting time,” she said as she walked away.
