Who is Boris Johnson, the man poised to be the next British leader?

LONDON Boris Johnson is one of the most divisive political figures in the United Kingdom.

He is also favorite among bookmakers and pollsters to become the next leader of the Conservative Party and therefore the next prime minister after Theresa May announced Friday that she would be stepping down June 7.

But who is this mop-haired eccentric, viewed by many as an inspiring political entertainer and by others as a dangerous populist?

May leaves a Conservative Party in open revolt. Johnson, a celebrity lawmaker who spearheaded the Brexit vote, is hoping to win over the rebels, finally make Brexit happen and be the leader to put the party back together.

He looks like he could be Trump's long lost twin.

8. Yes and no, attitude and bombast like Trump - but far smarter and more devious

The UK would have been much better off if May stayed

2. How did the UK survive and dominate so many centuries and not produce smarter leaders today?

I ask the same thing I ask of ourselves. How could we possibly be dominated by RW and fascist manipulation after what we went through together 75 years ago?

"You know nothing, Jon Snow! " (We are all Jon Snow today).

3. So, they finally get rid of May

then put someone worse than her in. I thought they were trying to fix things not make them worse.

6. Same possibility in France. If they get rid of Macron, Marine Le Pen likely to take the mantel.

7. All of the countris seem to be fucking themselves over.

They are fucking the whole world over.

I am not a Christan but doesn't the bible say something about evil taking over the world for a thousand years? Just asking.

5. Barely more intelligent than Tr**Putin.

Just another drunken Bullingdon Boy.
But not to be discounted for that.
