Reuters-British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was given a hero’s welcome on Friday (December 13), as he returned to 10 Downing Street from Buckingham Palace, where he had asked the Queen for permission to form a new government.
Johnson won a resounding election victory on Friday that will allow him to end three years of political paralysis and take Britain out of the European Union within weeks.
The Brexit divorce represents Britain’s biggest political and economic gamble since World War Two, cutting the world’s fifth-largest economy adrift from the vast trading bloc and testing the integrity of the United Kingdom.
For Johnson, who had faced gridlock in parliament and focused his campaign on a vow to “Get Brexit Done”, victory was a vindication.
