Will Boris Johnson be up to his new job? | Inside Story



Boris Johnson will be the UK’s Prime Minister after winning the Conservative Party leadership

Boris Johnson had campaigned on a ‘do-or-die’ pledge to deliver Brexit.

The man who’s provoked much controversy, won the leadership of the conservatives as was expected, and will be Britain’s next prime minister.

When Johnson walks into Number 10 in Downing Street this week, he will be tasked with persuading the European Union to revive talks on a withdrawal deal. If that fails, he says he’s ready to lead Britain out of the bloc without a deal on the 31st of October.
But Brexit is not Johnson’s only challenge.

The prime minister has to deal with an escalating standoff with Iran over its seizure of a UK tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.
And his critics will be watching very closely how he handles the so-called ‘special relationship’ with the U.S.

Donald Trump has backed Johnson to become the UK’s prime minister.

So, how will he deliver on Brexit and the many other challenges ahead?

  1. well, lets look at his track record.
    ok. no he isnt up to it…..

  2. Can Owen go to the top of the London eye and attempt to fly

  3. This guy is so lazy to comb hair , look like Bozo clown.

  4. The American Ambassador to UK will be able to return commentary

  5. I also detest excessive clothing, however burkas are the least of our problems! That shortsighted(lit.&fig.) rightleaning Australian woman speaker, true to current form, felt it neccessary to point out BJ's pedigree, as if that makes the slightest difference! Meanwhile the falsely leftleaning PC, worst enemies of free speech and guardians of censorship, nit-pick trivia, the earth is burning and drowning. Time will tell who was right over "brexit". Optimism ? 🤔 🙄 😁😁😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. All the fools in the political world get elected, why it is so one may ask? Is it that the political system in place and the election system is total fraud and totally un democratic, something else we are missing ? Guess

  7. No.

    Unless his new job is destroying the U.K. in some kind of twisted Shock Doctrine scenario.

  8. Omg! Wtf! How are we getting all these Twats in positions of power! Is it the end of everything? Sure feels like it is!

  9. The lady guest talks complete nonsense . Back stop is not a problem ? On which planet she lives?

  10. Yes he's up to the job. Because the standards PM's were once held to, no longer apply.

  11. Johnson would be up to his job only if the job was working in a circus

  12. let's see, iran? BORIS WILL LICK DONALD TRUMP'S BALLS AND DO EXACTLY WHAT HE IS TOLD TO! BREXIT? OH DEAR,I AM AFRAID TO EVEN THINK WHAT HE WILL DO ON THIS ONE… ANYTHING ELSE ON HIS AGENDA: MAY GOD HAVE MERCY OF BRITS! because boris johnson plus donald trump equal DISASTER ON ALL LEVELS! good luck with your new prime minister,YOU'LL NEED IT!

  13. Boris Johnson supporter: ''He's not quite from the land of gentry''

    Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is a descendant of King George II, his father was a politician, author, World Bank and EU Comission employee, and was also very wealthy. He described his £250k a year salary for his weekly Telegraph column 'chicken feed'. He went to the most exclusive boarding school in the country.

    Oh but it's OK, he went on a scholarship so he's a commoner like the rest of us

  14. What an amazing gift to the world of satire. Thank you conservative party for the gift of blojob 'the kipper' boris.

  15. UK should seize a tanker full of combs from France and fix that bird's nest on Boris' head.

  16. Blojob – an unmade bed with brain damage.

  17. Boris 'the kipper' blojob, prime minister by default. Compare and contrast blojob's outrage at the blair-brown transition with his own accession.

  18. Boris is a worry, UK needs another general election, I doubt he would be elected.

  19. As an international AZ viewer, I think Mehdi should be managing director of this group.

  20. His a PRIME MINISTER not a pry minister. If you can't say it properly how can you call yourself an expert.

  21. Don't believe Boris will call a general election, he knows it will cost his party an awfullalot of voters

  22. Brithish TRUMP, Boris like Drum loud but empty inside, and fool all, by just empty promise,

  23. Al Taqiyya is true to form.

    A slanderous bio of Boris and the invites biased commenters to slander Boris some more.

    Anyone that gives one instant to grant Owen Jones opportunity to present his routine lies and distortions only proves how dishonest they are.

    The way Jones drones on you would think Boris was phucking Jones gay boyfriend.

    Remainers are mad because their EU communist dreams are falling apart.

    Brexit is easy. Just leave.

    Ireland is a red herring. There are other nations with borders to EU nations. Also, Ireland and Britian's border is no business of the EU.
