UPDATE: Boris Johnson Expected to Stand in Contest to Replace Current UK PM Truss

UPDATE 10/22/2022: Boris Johnson is in the building. The former PM is back in London from his stay in the Dominican Republic. Please ignore the buttocks tan and middle school backpack. Big Johnson is ready to save the UK.

The original story is below…

On Thursday, UK Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned, making her tenure as PM the shortest in the country’s history.

Truss said of her decision, “I recognize, given the situation, I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected. I have spoken to King Charles to notify him I’m resigning as leader of the Conservative Party.”

And now, in a bizarre twist, former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to enter the contest to choose a replacement for Truss.

“He’s taking soundings but is said to believe it is a matter of national interest,” The Times’s political editor Steven Swinford said on Twitter.

Johnson resigned earlier this year over allegations of COVID-19 lockdown violations.
