At the end of their inglorious three-year stay on Downing Street, even their most loyal followers admitted that the Robotermay would never be considered one of Britain's biggest leaders.
On his first day as Prime Minister, Johnson promised a brave new Brexit deal that would beat up the "Doubters, Fiends, Tremies," and the political class that he said had forgotten the British people they serve. It was as if an optimistic attitude alone could be enough to overcome any adversity on the United Kingdom's way to leave the European Union.
For a moment, it seemed as if he was breathing new life into his words "positive energy". Some people may have thought he could do what May did not.
Johnson got his first vote in parliament Undeterred, the prime minister undeniably blew up 21
Then his efforts to achieve a temporary parliamentary election – with the aim of getting the dismissed lawmakers through to replace a new candidate more in line with his hardened Brexit views failed when opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to play along.
"It would seem that the Conservatives and their advisers thought that if they offered the Labor Party a parliamentary election, it would take the opportunity, but the way things developed – the coincidence of the no-deal bill and t The possibility that the opposition may thwart a parliamentary election creates the possibility that the prime minister may remain imprisoned in the government and fail to fulfill his promise to leave the EU. "
Now the newly formed Prime Minister is in a position that May never had – on his knees when he asked the opposition to parliamentary elections.
How did that happen?
The disaster began with Johnson's decision to extend or suspend the parliament from the middle. September, effectively shortening the legislator's time to block Brexit without an agreement. It will be Parliament's longest suspension since World War II, shaking the fragmented opposition parties. At Brexit, they agreed in their opposition to what they perceived as a sweeping attack on British constitutional conventions.
That seemed like a cloud hanging over the prime minister as he delivered a speech that might have been the opening salvo of an election campaign in other circumstances.
In front of a wall of police cadets in West Yorkshire. Johnson tried to recite the caution that the police tell the suspect. In an arrest, they just stumble over the words and give up the joke. Then he made a few listless comments that made the commentators jump.
Finally, one of the cadets sat down behind him in the heat, apparently to avoid fainting. Johnson turned and asked her if she was okay. He promised to end the event, but he continued.
The questions of the journalists were brutal. "Are not people entitled to ask if your own brother can not support you, why would anyone else?" one asked.
It is indeed an open question. Certainly a choice is a game of chance. However, there is a danger that Johnson and his advisers may have hoped that the Conservative Party's broad church coalition, by transforming into a group of Eurosceptics, will reconfigure the Brexit alliance and prove itself sufficient to win a parliamentary election. 19659010] Boris Johnson gives a speech flanked by police cadets on Thursday in West Yorkshire.
