Previous Next Brits now have, just like America, a polarizing figure as their political leader. The choice of Boris Johnson by just over 92,000 Conservative Party members surprised nobody. Since Theresa May was forced out in a bloodless coup, the Etonian has always been in the lead due to the simple reason there wasn't really a serious challenger. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who ran a distant second, may be deemed more capable, but his character is as dull as watching wet paint dry…
