The storm that is Brexit just won’t go.
So far, it has claimed two British Prime Ministers, David Cameron and Theresa May. Boris Johnson who succeeded May is now in the eye of that storm for making good on his promise to prorogue (close) Parliament.
Johnson saw the writing on the wall that the opposition had taken the initiative to facilitate law that would further extend UK departure date from the EU to prevent a no deal scenario. Litigations, protests have greeted Johnson’s latest move.
Before making that audacious move, the storm was at it again at the G7 summit in France. On the sideline of the summit Boris Johnson met with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Of course the agenda of the meeting between the two was the do or die exit date that Mr Johnson has set to take the UK out of the European Union. All that was however overshadowed by photograph of the PM’s leg on the table of his host.
While some of the British media tried to make light of the situation, the social media is seeing it differently. Mr Johnson has been castigated for being “arrogant,” “clownish,” “disrespectful,” among other diatribes. More than three years after the referendum, the storm that is Brexit rages on.
