UK Conservative Party set to choose new Prime Minister | USA TODAY

Maverick Boris Johnson or manager Jeremy Hunt: Who will be Britain’s new prime minister?

Other UK news: Dramatic audio released of Iran seizing British ship

Britain’s next leader will either be Boris Johnson, regarded as an eccentric, gaffe-prone populist who draws comparisons to President Donald Trump, or Jeremy Hunt, who has a reputation as a steady pair of hands, but whose commitment to delivering the country’s exit from the European Union – Brexit – has been questioned.

The winner – chosen by an internal Conservative Party vote because Britain elects a party not a prime minster – is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, current Prime Minister Theresa May will formally submit her resignation to Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. May is stepping down over her failed Brexit plan. She will remain a member of Parliament for now.

  38. The Brits would have had a better future if they would not have chosen to have so much black hatred within their own culture, and also if their British ex-patriates would not have chosen to continue perpetuating black hatred and their white superiority entitlement once they have arrived for their oh so much more promising futures in the Americas. To them, Give me my Big House instantly, they use their accent to get away with corrupt behaviours and an excuse to steal a promotion from a native North American. They still use their higher educated people to just drive the London Buses instead of using their advanced levels of education. Also, " No one becomes a Prime Minister without going to 'Oxford' nor if you do not have a caucasian looking skin " – Plus these Prime Ministers were funded by the Slave Masters in their Families that they stole from America, Canada, and all over the Americas, North, Central and South. Shame. And they cursed Israel. A lot of them for using Hatred in a Foreign Land should be sent back to the cheapened excuse of an Island that they came from. It's so corrupt, it favours Pirates, Stealing, Cheating to get ahead, it really should just be designated as an 'Alcatraz' until further notice. They also chose to favour Australia as opposed to Canada. And then their Australians come over, and do the same thing that the Brits have been training them to be doing. Rudeness and improper portions of Entitlement and Black People automatic Hatred. Very Very Prevalent and Evident here in Cana-duh. It's Okay, America, you've come a long way and I'm sure some of us still love you.

  39. After universal credit my three daughters will never ever vote for a tory
