British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigned as leader of Conservative Party
It would be “painful,” said Boris Johnson, standing in front of 10 Downing Street before a mass of reporters and projects fail to bear fruit.
The man who as a child declared he wanted to be “World King” had only himself to blame. As he battles to retain relevance, polish a very tarnished legacy.
he has indicated that he intends to remain in the post for much of the summer, even if it will be challenging for him to persuade enough members of Parliament.
Johnson himself emerged as the clear leader during a similar process in 2019, and already some of his longtime allies and opponents have expressed their interest in vying for the country’s top political job.
Not that Johnson will worry about who replaces him or whether his party still loves him. There are other acts to follow.Johnson is 58 in an era of geopolitical crisis, and still full of that insatiable blond ambition.
