Boris Johnson hasn’t followed through on the ‘number one’ reason he was elected: Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen

Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen provided the context for former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s failure to « deliver » on Brexit Thursday on the All-Star « Special Report » panel.
THE RESIGNATION OF BORIS JOHNSON CONCLUDED A TUMULTUOUS TERM
THIESSEN: My first thought when watching [Boris Johnson] giving that speech was, « Boy, is Joe Biden lucky we don’t have a parliamentary system here where the party can throw him out of power, because I don’t think he’d survive a vote of censorship in his party now. » I think the latest Harvard-Harris poll says only 71% of Americans don’t want him running again and only 30% of Democrats would vote for him in a primary. So he would be as dead as Boris Johnson if we had this system. But I think it was mostly scandals, less politics. But to the extent that the United States has a role to play in this, he has been involved in a campaign to deliver Brexit. And the United States – both the Trump administration and then the Biden administration – have absolutely failed to seriously negotiate a free trade agreement with Great Britain, which could have made them benefit from Brexit. So he was unable to achieve the first thing people named him for.
