As a permanent member of the UN security council, Britain is one of the countries that require the analysts’ consideration. Usually, elections are, somewhat, part of the domestic concerns of a country. However, when elections take place in a superpower and a prestigious country, it becomes an international affair.
24 July 2019, Britain welcomed a new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. Some commentators couldn’t ignore the cynical similarity between Boris and Trump. He gained nicknames like The mini Trump, Trump’s son, or Trump’s Twin
Who Is Theresa May’s successor?
He is a British politician. He is serving as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party since July 2019. Boris is not a new face in the arena. He held diverse positions before.
He has been the Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip since 2015 and was the MP for Henley from 2001 to 2008. Moreover, Boris served as Mayor of London from 2008 to 2016 and Foreign Secretary from 2016 to 2018.
Along with other political positions he held, Boris appears as a familiar face to the public and as an experienced politician. Nevertheless, Johnson is a controversial figure in British politics and the press. On the one hand, He was praised by his supporters as a humorous and popular figure, with a harmony that extended beyond traditional conservative voters. On the other hand, many criticized him and accused him of elitism, cronyism, dishonesty, and laziness.
The twin, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump:
This twin grew up in the womb of dogmatism, and they were born in an era where fanaticism equals protection. Close decisions toward sensitive issues assured the previous statement. For instance, they declared similar statements toward Migration, Refugees, Islam, and Homosexuality.
Moreover, the two men do not hide their admiration for each other. Boris Johnson has always admired Trump’s approach. On one occasion, he jokingly said he wanted to have the opportunity to be as active as Trump on Twitter,
On his side, US president was the first to congratulate Johnson saying that ” Boris Johnson, who just became prime minister of Britain, would be great. ”
Boris Johnson now faces multiple difficult issues, mainly, the Brexit crisis, and the release of the British oil tanker from the Strait of Hormuz. Many questions yet to be answered. Will his winning change the British social fabric?. Some experts are predicting that Britain may witness the shortest government in its history.
Is The World Going Crazy?
You know the world is screwed when the Russian guy is the sanist of them all
After Bori’s win, it appears that this era’s collection of world leaders seem to share one characteristic. They tend to be conservatives.
It is an interesting combination. With Trump, Putin, Xi Jinping, and Boris, is it possible that the world peace is on a threat.
The influence of conservative parties is increasing. It is a trend-driven not only by older generations but also by young people.
Many of these conservative groups share a belief in “traditional” values – those often associated with; religious beliefs, national identity, protection against immigration, and support for the family unit. I think it is the most rational reaction against the deteriorating situation and the disintegration we are encountering.
