Can Boris make a comeback?

Published

on

The moment Boris Johnson was ousted from 10 Downing Street was the moment he thought he could return as Britain’s prime minister.

Bewildered by the backstabbing views of ambitious fellow MPs, Johnson has always believed he could stage a political comeback like his hero and biographical subject, Winston Churchill.

But even Johnson, who was in the Caribbean this week making speeches for $300,000 a pop while the British economy faltered under PM Liz Truss’s uncosted, aggressive growth strategy, would not have expected to be cutting short his beach holiday with wife Carrie and their small children to return to the political fray.

Churchillian comeback or epic disaster?

As leader of the Conservative Party,Johnson is currently ahead in the polls and is the bookmakers’ favorite to become the next prime minister. But there are many obstacles in his path, not least the fact that he faces a formidable opponent in Labour leader Keir Starmer.

Johnson will also have to win over MPs who are angry at his handling of Brexit – which culminated in him taking Britain out of the EU without a deal – and his government’s pandemic response, which has been widely criticized.

It remains to be seen whether Boris Johnson will be successful in his bid to become Britain’s prime minister for a second time.

But right now in Britain, it feels like anything is possible.

Geopolitical uncertainties prompt businesses to diversify their supply chains away from China, a move influenced by both politics and economics. Taiwan, Vietnam, and Indonesia emerge as preferred destinations due to their strategic advantages and growing economies.

Australia’s recent Australian ASEAN Summit highlights the potential gains from closer ASEAN ties, given its vast population of over 640 million. What collaborative opportunities lie ahead?

Professor Harcourt’s upcoming Airport Economist ASEAN series on Ticker promises deeper insights into ASEAN’s economic landscape, revealing its potential as a significant global player.
