Is Boris Johnson quite popular in Poland? How does he compare with other leaders like say Trump or Salvini

A better question would be why BJ would care how popular he is in Poland. Or Trump.

No. A large percentage of Polish people like to think of the UK as a kind of bugout location, a way to start anew if things go south in Poland (and they don't know or care what UK subjects think of that).

A guy who won a crushing election with the promise of getting Brexit done won't be popular. There's still Ireland but that's not nearly as appealing (too... Irish). There's also a bunch of other countries in western europe but the widespread presence of English in the education system makes the UK the first choice for most (a popular language can also be a burden).

Among my family (which includes some politically active people from the ruling party); I have never heard anyone actively praise him. Most people are indifferent and the more educated think he is clown and certainly not the equal of Macron and Merkel (which is quite a low bar).

In Polish business circles he is derided, not seen as a serious person and not respected as he clearly had no plan for Brexit when the vote was taken. Brexit is seen as a problem that needs a workaround (and in my line of work that normally means going via Amsterdam but Dublin is a close second)

Rest of the popularion probably does not really care except as it affects there emigration prospects or the lower value of remittances being sent home. His string of kids and marriages doesn't got down well in a conservative country but isn't really discussed.

Mind you there is one Pole who likes him - Kawczynski, a prototype plastic Pole totally out of touch with Poland

Me too, but most Poles are uninterested.
But at least they have heard of him.
Most Brits,by contrast, have never even heard of Duda.....

Funniest thing about Boris was leftist media propaganda and manipulation. All major leftard media including The Guardian an Politico were all about how new referendum is needed because Brits have changed their minds about Brexit. Then when reality kicked in we could see that even more sceptics voted against lefitist propaganda. This example clearly shows that leftis media don't chase after facts and truth but they're working for their ill agenda.

But it's ok. To leftards "Democracy" has place only when the outcome of voting is in line with their ideology.

I love Boris. Boris, friend of truth, started leaking facts about Serbian innocence in Srebrenica. So, he seams to be friendly on Polish interests.

Finally somebody with name Boris who love Poland.

Boris accepts reality. Collaborating with Islamic league in destruction of Yugoslavia, Germany destroyed EU. Now Britain giving up and save itself, France tries to profit from disaster of EU and Germany,... well, Germany made its last mistake.

When I read comments under articles about Brexit, a lot of participants point to BJ`s alleged Russian ties.

Boris Jelzin was an alcoholic. Is Boris Johnson an alcoholic too?

Incorrectly, most probably. Britain`s current engagement in aiding Ukraine proves that present British leaders are no longer Putin`s puppets.

It appears BOJO is getting into trouble over there?
"Boris Johnson is a reckless liar and an embarrassment to our great nation"

He sounds like Biden now.

"Lies, damned lies: the full list of accusations against Boris Johnson"

I reckon he will be gone by Christmas.
If not sooner.

I have found only one meme alluding to their collusion with Russians. Interesting there are no more, like hundreds in Trump`s case.

He has been one of the more personable PMs though, the rest have been rather drab and boring.

Might be personable but he is a liar, very poor leader (much worse than Trump) and it's clear from this incident that he thinks ordinary British people are scum
Miloslaw 14 | 4,583

He has and is intelligent and funny.And has charisma.
He has some similarities to Trump and they have caught up with him.

Might be personable but he is a liar,

And that has been his downfall.... all the lies....

But the UK has the same problem as the USA.
Trump and Johnson may have their faults....but the alternatives are even worse....as the USA has discovered....

Im not trying to defend his actions at all. I dont even know the full story, its not being mentioned across the pond.

he thinks ordinary British people are scum

Its time to boot him out then.

If not sooner.

Who would be the new PM?

Is there a replacement like a Vice President or another election?

Honestly, you can think what you want about his career or politics in general. But someone who bans people from visiting their dying loved ones or hold proper funerals for them, while he himself holds several parties with dozens of guest is despicable, plain and simple. Leaders are supposed to set an example in tough times, but how can he serve as one after that?
pawian 197 | 20,021

Yes. Funny that politicians do such things, hoping they will not surface. Are they stupid?

but how can he serve as one after that?

Because his voters have also gone to the dogs and don`t mind.

This labour leader is the other alternate

This labour leader

Are they kneeling down in order to apologise in advance to their voters for all their future dirty Boris-style acts? :):)
