On December 12, 2020, Erik Goldstein, Professor of International Relations and History at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed by La Razon on the British “premier” and how it has lost popularity due to his chaotic management.
In the article, titled “‘Los días de Boris Johnson en el gobierno están contados’ (Boris Johnson’s days in government are numbered), Goldstein is questioned regarding Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s leadership a year after his election as well as the British government’s response to COVID-19 and Brexit. Due to the chaotic response to the pandemic as well as a prospective Brexit strategy with no sign of a trade deal, Goldstein said support for Johnson and the Conservative party has waned and Johnson’s days in office could be numbered.
