The Rise Of Boris Johnson, The UK’s New Controversial Prime Minister

Boris Johnson will be the UK’s next prime minister. Known as “BoJo” among his supporters, he’s one of the UK’s most recognizable politicians. He’s a charismatic, and sometimes controversial figure. Johnson started his career in journalism, but was fired from The Times for making up a quote. He was elected as a Member of Parliament in 2001.

Following is a transcript of the video:

The life and career of Boris Johnson

He attended the elite boarding school Eton College with David Cameron. He studied classical literature, history, and philosophy at Balliol College, Oxford University, and was president of the Oxford Union in 1986.

Boris had a brief career at The Times before getting fired for making up a quote. Politics and journalism run in his family. His brother, Jo Johnson, is also a Conservative politician and former bureau chief at the Financial Times.

Boris was elected as a Member of Parliament in 2001. He was embroiled in a scandal during his early years as a politician and editor. After publishing an article suggesting the city of Liverpool reveled in a “victim status.”

In 2004, Boris lied about having an affair and was fired from his position as Shadow Minister of the Arts. In 2008, he resigned as an MP and was elected as the Mayor of London. 

During this time, he gained quite a reputation. London’s bike-share service unofficially bears his name. They’re known as “Boris Bikes.” He rode a bike with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In 2012, Boris got stuck on a zipline while promoting the Olympics and made international headlines. He was re-elected as Mayor that same year. 

Despite the repeated gaffes, many people warmed to Boris. Though some incidents come off as clownish, his supporters believe they make him more authentic and relatable than many politicians. But critics called him an inactive mayor, using the position to boost his personal publicity.

When things heated up during the Brexit debate in 2016, Boris said Britain had a “great, great future” outside of the European Union. When US President Barack Obama encouraged Britain to stay in the EU, Boris called him a “part-Kenyan” with hypocritical views. 

After Britain voted to leave the EU and Cameron resigned. Boris was favored to become the next Prime Minister, but he declared that he would not enter the race.

“My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.”

When Theresa May became Prime Minister, she appointed Johnson as Foreign Secretary. In his new role, he visited many EU countries he previously condemned. And worked to convince the world Brexit wouldn’t mean the UK was walling itself from the world.

He resigned as Foreign Secretary in July 2018 in a rebuke of May’s stance on Brexit. Johnson continued to fight for Brexit. In May 2019, Theresa May announced her resignation after Parliament repeatedly rejected her Brexit deal.

Johnson and Jeremy Hunt were the final candidates to replace her. People doubted Johnson would be the frontrunner, but he received 64% of the vote.

Johnson’s campaign slogan was “Deliver, Unite, Defeat.” He realized it had an unfortunate acronym, so he added an “E” at the end for “energize”.

“Dude, we are going to energize the country, we are going to get Brexit done!”

Spying on a Stag Hunt (Extra Scene from ‘Bringing Back the Hunt’)

Watch “Bringing Back the Hunt: The British Election” – http://bit.ly/1J6TEpK

Days after the UK Conservative Party won a surprise majority in the country’s national elections, a top Tory official has confirmed that his government will try to scrap a 2004 ban on hunting with hounds.

Stag hunting — in which a deer is tracked and chased by a large pack of dogs, often guided by red coat-wearing hunters on horseback — was made illegal by the Hunting Act 11 years ago, under Tony Blair’s Labour Party government.

But in the months leading up to the 2015 election, Prime Minister David Cameron vowed to push a re-vote on the legislation. “I have always been a strong supporter of country sports. It is my firm belief that people should have the freedom to hunt,” he wrote in the Countryside Alliance magazine.

Anti-hunt activists, in turn, say they will do everything in their power to stop Cameron. “Ten years on, a small minority want to make it legal again for foxes and other animals to be chased, maimed, and killed for their enjoyment,” said the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) in a statement to VICE News. “There’s no justification: Hunting is not an efficient method of population control.”

In this extra scene, we meet Paul Tillsley, head of investigations for LACS, and travel to Quantock Hills in Somerset to secretly film a stag hunt in action.

Will Britain Bring Back the Hunt? – The British Election

Just weeks before the UK’s general election, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that if re-elected, he would work to overturn the 2004 Hunting Act, which made it illegal to hunt wild animals with large packs of hounds. With that, Conservative Party leader Cameron thrust the issue of hunting onto Britain’s election agenda — kicking up a heated debate that can seem to pitch rich against poor, tradition against modernity, and city against countryside. Labour, the main opposition party has in turn vowed to defend the hunting ban.

On both sides of the line, activists now speak of a reignited “class war.” VICE News traveled across the British countryside, meeting with hunters, activists, balaclava-clad “hunt saboteurs,” and everyday Brits who say that urban politicians just don’t get their country way of life.
