U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces the most critical week of his premiership, as he braces for the outcome of an investigation that could lead to his own colleagues ousting him.

Allegations are also mounting over the conduct of his government whips -- the Conservative Party lawmakers responsible for maintaining party discipline -- with member of Parliament Nusrat Ghani claiming on Sunday that she was fired as a minister in 2020 partly because of her Muslim faith.
