United Kingdom: but where did Boris Johnson go?

Forty days after the announcement of his resignation, the eccentric British Prime Minister Boris Johnson falls into line to such an extent that one wonders: where did he go? Fired by his own party, which is to appoint his successor on September 5, the former mayor of London has disappeared from the radar. The British dailies have only the archive photos of her blond hair flying in the wind to illustrate the action of 10 Downing Street, since the beginning of the summer. The situation is such that it inspired satirical newspapers to headline the Friday August 12 issue. "The Prime Minister present at a meeting", shouted Metro on the occasion of a meeting with the leaders of the electricity producers before chuckling inside the pages: "The meeting did not lead to immediate concrete actions (...)"

Stuck in a transitional role, Boris Johnson stays far away from strategic decisions. The thorny question of inflation? It is up to his successor to take care of it. Ukraine? More a blown sound in the transistor. “Major budgetary decisions must be left to the next Prime Minister,” said a statement from his cabinet on August 7. The outgoing therefore claims the choice of expediting current affairs and postponing major orientations and sensational announcements. From there to taking an early vacation? BoJo was traveling to Slovenia at the end of July... for his honeymoon.

He took advantage of the power vacuum to organize the wedding party that his schedule had previously prevented him from holding with Carrie Johnson, née Symonds, to whom he married in the spring of 2021. Accustomed to being at the heart controversies that eventually got the better of his place in Downing Street, Boris Johnson still arouses astonishment in the United Kingdom. A form of exasperation prevails when evoking the apathy that is gaining British power.

Beyond the question of the festivities of his marriage, Boris Johnson has revealed himself, on several occasions, to be absent from several crisis meetings, in particular devoted to the historic heat wave having hit the United Kingdom. He is also criticized for not having received the English footballers after their victory at the Euro organized at home. If Boris Johnson shows himself to absent subscribers with regard to internal affairs, he congratulated himself on Slovenian television on the “wonderful” stay spent with his spouse.

What frighten a good number of voices listened to in the United Kingdom, like that of one of his predecessors, Gordon Brown who called to accelerate the transfer of power and worried about the ease taken by the guarantor of the Constitution. True to his temperament, Johnson was not moved. Rumor has it that he now spends his time looking for the land for his future home.

When leaving the head of the United Kingdom, BoJo said he was sad to leave "the most beautiful job in the world", the Prime Minister seems less frightened by the emptiness promised by his coming retirement. He still has twenty days left in the clothes of head of government before Liz Truss, pragmatist and chatterian, or the young leader, Riche Sunak, takes over.
