Election 2019: What is happening with Boris Johnson?
2019 Boris Johnson is facing a fight on two counts in the six weeks leading to the general election. A fight to obtain a Conservative Party majority and a fight to hold his own constituency.
In 2015 Boris Johnson described Moslem women wearing burqas, looking like “letter boxes” and “bank robbers.” Johnson’s feels unfiltered, honest and authentic to his supporters. Boris have managed to convince people he is really looking out for the interests of the common man.
2015 Johnson served two terms as London mayor, declining to run again in 2016. This year he also returned to Parliament, winning a seat as an MP in 2015, It’s the seat he still holds today.
Johnson had a privileged upbringing, -but it doesn’t matter because he’s one of us the people say — he’s funny, he makes mistakes, and he says what he thinks”. The UK held the Brexit referendum on June 23, 2016.
They had two choices: Leave (the EU) or Remain.
Indiana 2016, Johnson suggested that President Barack Obama opposed Brexit because of his “ancestral dislike” of Britain, owing to his “part-Kenyan heritage” (Kenya was formerly a British colony).
Johnson embraced the leave campaign in February 2016, “I will be advocating Vote Leave because I want a better deal for the people of this country, to save them money and to take control,” Johnson said. Johnson could position himself to be the next leader of the Conservative Party.
Johnson, along with other leaders in the Brexit campaign, thought that the £350 million a week should be used to fund Britain’s popular National Health Service instead.
Boris argued that the EU’s freedom of movement rules made the UK less safe and said Brexit would allow the UK to take back control of its borders. Johnson are today 2019 pursuing a “soft Brexit” that will keep the UK closely tied to EU.
