Boris the Wrecker; Brexit Edition

Boris Johnson has unexpectedly ruled himself out as a candidate for Britain’s next prime minister, after the justice secretary, Michael Gove, sent shockwaves through Westminster with a last-minute bid for the Conservative leadership.
Create chaos and then leave to let other pick up the pieces. That's a very Trumpian thing to do. Boris clearly shares more with the Donald than just a shitty haircut/piece.

Actually, Boris bowed out because most of his core group of supporters in Parliament defected to Gove. Meaning he would have lost the leadership election. So to preserve his dignity (what little there is of it), he said "well fine, I don't want to be prime minister after all!" and picked up his toys and went home.

Though I suspect he is indeed breathing a sigh of relief that he isn't the one who's going to have to deal with the fallout of Brexit....
