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!”

Trump’s former campaign chairman surrenders to the FBI

Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump surrendered to federal authorities on Monday.

The charges would be the first from the investigation of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed to look into alleged Russian meddling to sway the election in favor of Trump.

The Times also reported that Manafort associate Rick Gates would also surrender.

Manafort, 68, served the Trump campaign from June to August of 2016 before resigning amid reports he may have received millions in illegal payments from a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine.

Mueller has been investigating Manafort’s financial and real estate dealings and his prior work for that political group, the Party of Regions, which backed former Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovich.

Netsky “2” Released Worldwide – 25.06.2012

Netsky — “2” takes the 23 year old’s signature sound and brings in live influences with elements of electro-house and dubstep alongside the euphoric, hands-in-the-air D+B he has become known for.
Across the 14-track selection there are a number of featured vocalists, from names we know and love such as Dynamite MC and Diane Charlemagne to international talents like million selling Belgian soul/funk singer/songwriter Selah Sue, The Times’ “female artist to watch”, Bridgette Amofah and US rapper Jimmy Jams.

Kicking off with a storming intro in “Love Has Gone” the album progresses through future anthems like “The Whistle Song” and “Wanna Die For You”. Previously released singles “Give & Take” and “Come Alive” are all live band influences and catchy vocal hooks, whilst old skool piano chiming “Get Away From Here” is classic Netsky with a twist, with lush vocals courtesy of Selah Sue. Elsewhere, “911” injects a bit of robo-electro-house and then there’s the streetwise patter of hip-hop charged drama in “Squad Up”. “When Darkness Falls” is late night D+B soul lushness, whilst “Detonate” is an incendiary heavy hitter and final track “Drawing Straws” provides a classy outro.

Challenging the “difficult second album” concept with a genre-spanning panorama of uplifting melodies and exciting new tunes, Netsky — “2” reaffirms once more the young producer truly is one of Belgium’s premium exports.
