Intensified attacks on Boris Johnson


Man in office lacks character and competence.

The competition to become the UK’s next King is in full swing challenging assumptions about what is crucial at the stage when people are going to choose a leader. Yes, usually, the rule book has been thrown out of the window.

Britains opposition parties made provoking and intensified attacks on Prime Minister Boris Johnson when two weeks to go until election day, as polls suggested the UK leaders Conservatives have a massive lead.

Jo Swinson, leader of the centrist Liberal Democrats, made accusation against Johnson of uttering serial falsehoods and taking the office of prime minister in a mess.

She expressed Johnson cannot be made responsible as a reliable individual because he vowed to lead Britain out of the European Union by October 31 — and didn’t — and said he would never ask the EU to delay Brexit — but did.

“Boris Johnson is not fit to be prime minister not just because he doesn’t care, not just because he lies, but also because he is complicit in stoking division and fear in our communities,” Swinson told supporters during a speech in London.

The general public does not have any feedback in this election. The vote is confined to members of the Conservative Party. So on what are they basing their choice between former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and current foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt? Our research on leadership has shown the importance of reputation, which is built on two aspects: character and competence.
