British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was booed upon arrival at St Paul's Cathedral yesterday, for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee service.

Royal fans booed the Prime Minister and his wife Carrie Johnson as they exited their car and ascended the steps of St Paul's for the service.

In a tweet, GB News Presenter Nigel Farage said: "When a Prime Minister is roundly booed by the crowd on a day of national Thanksgiving, you know it' all over".

Calls for a leadership contest have risen following the frosty reception of the Prime Minister.

Columnist Dan Hodges insinuated in an exclusive interview with GB News Presenter Alastair Stewart that Boris could be booted as early as next week.

Mr Hodges added: "When we come back on Monday, Boris will be facing a leadership challenge."

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said he was not surprised that the Prime Minister faced boos and jeers at the service yesterday, saying to PA news agency: "In many respects, I wasn’t surprised at that.

“I think so many people across the country are fed up with the Government, particularly its inaction on the cost of living.”

Probed on whether the reception was a reflection of the public’s attitude towards politics, Sir Keir replied: “A crowd will decide for itself how it wants to acknowledge and they were there to acknowledge and thank the Queen – that was absolutely in everybody who was there.

“They booed the Prime Minister, they are fed up with the Government, but the vast majority were there to say thank you to the Queen and in a sense reflect on what she has given to our country, which is absolutely phenomenal.”

The PM was also heckled and booed more as he left the service, with one person saying “f*** off Boris”.

Clement Jacquemin, a spectator in the crowd said he booed Boris Johnson leaving St Paul’s Cathedral in London because “he is a disgrace”.

Mr Jacquemin added how Brexit and partygate fuelled his objection to Mr Johnson, and said the Prime Minister should have “stayed home, made himself forgotten, and let the British public enjoy this day”.
