“Hasta la vista, Baby!” was the unexpected last words of United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he addressed the parliament for the final time in this capacity.

Johnson, who received a standing ovation from the attending Members of Parliament, used his final speech to review his leadership over the past few years, which he described as a mission largely accomplished.

He said, “These last few years have been the greatest privilege of my life… I helped to get the largest tory majority for 40 years and a huge realignment in UK politics.”

He continued, “I’ve helped get this country through a pandemic and help save another country from barbarism.”

In his final moments, Johnson also gave some advice to his successor who will be named when the House of Commons returns from its summer recess on September 5th.

He urged the next Prime Minister of the UK, whoever he or she is, to “stay close to the Americans, stick up for the Ukrainians, stick up for freedom and democracy everywhere!”

Johnson also urged his successor to “cut taxes and deregulate wherever you can to make this the greatest place to live and invest… remember if we’d always listened to the treasury we wouldn’t have built the M25 or the Channel Tunnel.”

Despite Johnson’s tease that this was a job well done “for now”, his press secretary has denied rumours that he is already eyeing a political comeback.

Following his farewell, Johnson is expected to venture into writing, journalism and public speaking.

It is rumoured that a group of Conservative associations intend to protest Johnson’s eviction by placing his name on the leadership ballot in the upcoming election.
