Boris Johnson is now the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The tousle-headed neo-liberal fought a remarkably quiet campaign, perhaps with good reason.
If there were ever a modern British politician with enough skeletons in the closet to bring him down on the first day of his premiership: it’s Johnson. Even so, the Conservative parliamentary party couldn’t stop him. Mostly due to their weakness.
A once frenemy of the liberal David Cameron, Johnson has waited his way into 10 Downing Street, having pulled out of the leadership campaign against Theresa May in 2016.
His record is spotty, and as checkered as his personal life.
