Last week, in the aftermath of both Party and Pinchergate – not to speak of sky-high inflation and higher taxes – Boris Johnson resigned as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. For many, the writing has been on the wall for months: small ethical problems snowballing because of mismanagement and lies; large economic problems fostered by increasingly leftist policies. In light of these challenges, Johnson’s great Brexit achievement’s luster began to fade. The coming days and weeks promise an unseemly scramble for leadership of Britain’s Conservatives. Where will the Tories go? A rebirth of Thatcherism to face Britain’s crises? Or more drift to the squashy left? More importantly still, are there lessons for the United States in the BoJo debacle?

These questions and more in today’s episode with Alan Mendoza. Mendoza is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Henry Jackson Society, a leading UK think tank.

    I assume the elephant in the room is that working class whites in Great Britain no longer vote Labor because doing so will result in more African and Muslim immigration.  And of course Brexit – which again was driven by the white working class trying to forestall their being replaced in their own country.

    Since Labor cannot win, that leaves the Tories with a lock on reelection.  But what is going on with the Tories having more and more Asians in minister positions?  Rishi Sunak is Hindu, correct?   Are the Asians in the Conservative party Hindus and those in Labor are Muslim?
