As Theresa May set her sights on the future, outgoing British Prime Minister David Cameron took the time to examine his past on his last moments in office. The last few weeks have been dramatic ones in British politics, with Brexit setting off a domino effect of politicians falling by the wayside - Cameron resigned, allies stabbed likely successor Boris Johnson "in the back", and leadership contender Leadsom threw in the towel amid controversial motherhood comments.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was booed by some audience members at his first public appearance in the role at Bastille Day celebrations at the French ambassador's residence. The most interesting appointment, however, is of David Davis - a Eurosceptic who is also strong on civil liberties issues - to lead the hardcore Brexit negotiations with the EU.
A former Brussels journalist and mayor of London , Johnson cultivates a clownish public image but also caused deep offence in the European Union during the referendum campaign by comparing its aims to unify Europe to those of Adolf Hitler.
Former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, who spearheaded the effort, criticized the decision and vowed to still try to force a vote on the convention floor when Republican delegates gather beginning Monday. His service as the finance chairman is seen as a show of solidarity even though the entire 66-member OH delegation is pledged to vote for Mr. Kasich on the first ballot Tuesday.
Johnson may well find that old and not-so-old jokes come back to haunt him in his new job. Rebecca Harms, leader of the ecologist Greens group in the European Union legislature said: "At first I thought it was a joke". In May, he penned a naughty limerick suggesting that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had "sowed his wild oats with the help of a goat, but he didn't even stop to thankera".
Veteran Labour MP Graham Allen warned that Labour MPs would be "harshly judged by history" if the effort to topple Mr Corbyn descended into infighting. On Tuesday, after a six-hour meeting during which the NEC heard three contradictory pieces of legal advice over Corbyn's inclusion on the ballot, Labour's governing body ruled in Corbyn's favor.
