Will Boris Johnson Be the UK’s Next Prime Minister?

Will Boris Johnson be the next UK Prime Minister?

He is certainly odds-on-favorite. And the fact that he is a hard line Brexiteer and a very charismatic one, especially after Nigel Farage's Brexit party did particularly well in the European elections, means there are a lot of Tories that want to keep the Conservative Party together that are going end up supporting him. It is his to lose. He is very capable though of losing it.


How viable is Trump's Middle East peace plan?

Well, I mean, if you want to make a geopolitical bet, betting that the Israel Palestine peace plan will never happen has been a pretty good one over the last few decades. But let's keep in mind that Middle East peace is not a high priority for most actors in the Middle East right now. Their focus is on things like Iran and Yemen and Syria and ISIS and al-Qaeda, which means that their willingness to work with the Israelis and the Trump administration - a lot higher than it used to be. Plus Trump's best relations in the world are actually with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Israel. So I actually think that at least the workshop is likely to get more credibility and more money than anyone would have expected. So more movement than you might have thought and that's all I had time for!

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

And as a result, much of the developing world will have to wait even longer for their turn. Part of the challenge, World Bank President David Malpass says, is that "advanced economies have reserved a lot of the vaccine doses." Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.

He joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to talk about how his organization is trying to keep the developing world from slipping further into poverty in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic.

Joe Biden wants to move into the White House, but the coast isn't clear. He may need some bleach.
