A video posted on current British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Twitter shows him being driven in a car while explaining, in a somewhat disgruntled manner, the UK Parliament’s decision to hold a snap election in December 2019.
In the video, Johnson talks about the Brexit deal he had hoped to use to lead UK out of the European Union, which has, to his disappointment, been delayed. This is the first time since 1923 that Britain has had a December poll.
As is often the case with Johnson, social media is both amused and critical of this video. Here are some of the responses:
Brexit: ‘Great new deal’ secured, says British PM Boris Johnson
EU has agreed to extend Brexit till January 31, says European Council president
UK Parliament approves snap general elections on December 12 in bid to end Brexit impasse
