Boris Johnson Wins Party Vote Becomes Newest British Prime Minister…

Boris Johnson has succeeded in beating his nearest rival Jeremy Hunt for leadership of the conservative party in the U.K. thereby becoming the next Prime Minister. One of the priority challenges for Prime Minister Johnson will be navigating a successful Brexit.

A full three years after the British electorate voted to leave the European Union, the elites in Britain have continued to stymie the referendum in their effort to remain attached to the communal values of the collective society.  Thus gave rapid rise, recently, to the Brexit Party as a national force led by Nigel Farage.  It’s the UK version of ‘deplorables’ vs ‘elites’.

The British Parliament is filled with elected members who stand in opposition to the majority of the British citizenry.  It is amid this professionally political and elitist disconnect that Boris Johnson must now attempt to deliver Brexit, while the purchased politicians of both institutional parties will oppose his effort. [Sound familiar?]

London (AFP) – Boris Johnson won the race to become Britain’s next prime minister on Tuesday, heading straight into a confrontation over Brexit with Brussels and parliament, as well as a tense diplomatic stand-off with Iran.

The former London mayor easily beat his rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, in a vote of grassroots members of the governing Conservative Party.

He is expected to be confirmed as prime minister on Wednesday when Theresa May formally tenders her resignation to Queen Elizabeth II.

US President Donald Trump was the first world leader to offer his congratulations, saying: “He will be great!”

It is a triumph for a man who has always coveted the premiership. But Johnson, known for his jokes and bluster, is taking over at a time of immense political upheaval.

Three years after the referendum vote to leave the European Union, Britain remains a member amid continued wrangling in a divided parliament on how to proceed.

– ‘We’ll get Brexit done’ –

Johnson led the referendum “Leave” campaign and — after May delayed Brexit twice — insists the latest deadline must be met, with or without a divorce agreement with the EU.

“We’re going to get Brexit done on October 31,” he declared in a speech to party members in London, after winning 66 percent of almost 140,000 votes cast.  (read more)

Here is Johnson’s victory speech. [Prompted, just hit play]

      They need is a leader like Nigel Farage. Boris may Brexit, but he really doesn’t want to.
      Never cared for this guy, I hope he proves me wrong. He was pro-amnesty for illegal aliens and he probably still is. Remember when he came to Washington DC to try to persuade our president to stay in the Iran deal? I guess Boris the globalist was just doing his job.

      Some people will be disappointed, Boris Johnson is no Donald Trump.
      Not by a long shot.

        Exactly! I wouldn’t trust Boris as far as I could throw him. He’s WAY more Mitt Romney than Donald Trump. I’ve followed Brexit and all of the pols for 3 years.

        Boris will cave. He got the power he craved but is so indebted to the House of Lords (staunch remain) and certain donors (staunch remain) that he’ll attempt to “make a deal”. Just like May.

        Because the Brexit Party was not allowed to run, Farrage could not be voted in.

        The Tories and Labouer parties hemorrhaged a ton of people to the Brexit Party. Boris knows if he doesn’t deliver, Farage will be sitting there in 18 months.

        Now Boris is boxed in a corner. What to do, what to do?

  4. Another European government turns against the EU and towards popularism.

    Kaputo had a guest on saying Boris has till October to get it done because the Conservatives are going to get creamed in the election. Kaputo always finds the one “pundit” that is anti nationalism and pro globalization.

    Later OANN commented on Farage’s 2 week old party garnering 32% of the vote. Not bad and he will support Boris.

    Follow that with Nigel Gardiner calling Boris UK’s Trump. Nigel has been a regular guest on FBN. Very conservative (US type) and very knowledgeable.

        Kaputo is full of it, my family in the U.K. and two childhood friends all voted for Brexit and support Farage.

        The real numbers for Brexit far exceed what the media are espousing.

        Just like PDJTs popularity.

        Boris, has to play the game because he has his own CINOs to deal with.

        But Farage will crush the Tory party forever if Boris F**ks this up.

      Yes dead easy. Do nothing and we leave on 31st Oct.
      Unfortunately we have a Parliament of representatives who believe they “know” what the British people voted for in the referendum. They believe that when we said leave, we really meant remain, or as an alternative, we leave while simultaneously rejoining under even worse conditions.

      You are not the only country with a UNIPARTY pretending to be two parties. Sadly our Parliament are not going to do nothing.

      Our next scheduled General Election is not due until 2022, but with agreement in Parliament it can be held whenever decided (in case of constitutional crisis etc). A vote of no confidence in the government would force a new election.

      If the next general election is brought forward to deal with the crisis, then I believe that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party will play an enormous role in the result. The Conservative Party will only get my vote if we have already left with no-deal.

    Wish I could be as optimistic as some folks. After taking early retirement, I fulfilled a lifelong dream to attend grad school at the London School Of Econ. Having spent 3+ years in London carefully following UK politics …sadly I would call Boris a loose cannon. He was a disappointment as Mayor of London esp after the tenure of the previous: “Red Ken”. Granted he was NOT the horror show of Sadiq Kahn but that is not saying much. Boris backs Boris. Not holding my breath.

    Farage mentioned a few things yesterday.

    BOJO can’t “do nothing”. Parliament will vote no confidence unless he goes through the approval process.

    BOJO can’t freeze Parliament by calling a special election late in the game. They have a rule to get around that.

    The two paths BOJO faces are 1) Renegotiate the backstop slightly and claim victory, aka follow in Treason May’s footsteps (“BRINO” — Brexit In Name Only) or 2) Push for a economic trade deal that Parliament will support.

    Nigel wants option 2. The LBC channel on YouTube will be tracking it all as Halloween is just 3 mos. away.

    While there was always less, much less, to Theresa May than met the eye, to Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson there is more– much more. Born in Manhattan (hm!) to upscale British parents a generation after Pres. Trump, a “quiet and studious” childhood led on to scholarly interests in classical Greek and Latin languages, literature, philosophy.

    A popular figure in middle school and Oxford, preferring “Boris” to “Alec”, Johnson started as a journalist, political commentator, and magazine editor before entering politics– first as MP for Henley of regatta fame, then as a rough-and-tumble two-term Lord Mayor of London.

    As British commentators note, though Boris as “a character rather than a personality” wears his Oxford erudition lightly, he possesses Churchill’s flair for “direct-action rhetoric” in Ciceronian mode (calling Hitler a “bloodthirsty guttersnipe”, Sir Winston stated his delenda est Carthago as “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat”). Given Johnson’s charismatic political gifts, deep historical perspective plus a non-solemn but withal serious, iconoclastic nature [who does that remind us of?], we suspect that “Brexit this October” will be the least of his accomplishments.

      Since the final machination’s of Satan’s plan are coming to pass even as we observe world events, one can only speculate as to the final timeline.

    After what the Dems and their Deep State Cabal did and are still trying to do to P Trump ever since his historic election victory, it’s difficult to imagine other evil political forces in the West won’t try to emulate them but with even more devious plans.

    Politicians aligning with a corrupt Cabal after elections could become as commonplace as the Dem’s accusations of racism.
