Jo Johnson told BBC radio Saturday it is up to members of Parliament to take a stand.

He said that if others decide to resign, “good on them.”

Johnson, the younger brother of Boris Johnson, stepped down as a transport minister Friday and called for a second Brexit referendum. He said May’s Brexit plan would damage Britain’s national interest.

He said the plan is so different from what had been promised during the 2016 referendum that a second vote is needed.
