With Britain being one of America’s strongest allies in the world, their leadership is almost as important as ours. The United Kingdom’s ruling Conservative Party voted today to place Boris Johnson as the Prime Minister of Great Britain now that Theresa May is stepping down.
Boris is a strong proponent of Brexit and is seen as Great Britain’s version of Donald Trump. Critical of liberals and the ineffectiveness of the the EU, Boris has called for Britain to remove itself from the EU for years. Theresa May seemingly was unable to get the job done, and as such has had to step down.
Boris Johnson is seen by liberals as a “clown” and a “joke,” he is also feared for his views on Welsh independence. Anne Milton, the Education Minister in Great Britain, resigned before the vote came in, saying that Boris was likely to push through a no deal Brexit and that her party would not vote no confidence in the deal.
Boris Johnson was educated at Eton College and Oxford University and has been the leader of Britain’s Tory party. Boris has not always had a typical life and who was born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson in New York to wealthy middle class British parents. Started his career as a journalist, Assistant Editor and then as London’s Mayor.
