Favorite Johnson pledges tax cut as race to succeed PM May starts
Leading Brexit advocate Boris Johnson promised tax cuts for higher earners if he becomes Britain’s next prime minister as the contest to replace Theresa May - and take charge of the EU divorce - officially kicked off on Monday.
May stepped down as leader of the ruling Conservative Party on Friday, having failed three times to win parliament’s support for a European Union divorce deal that was supposed to address Britain’s biggest political crisis in a generation.
Nominations to replace her must be submitted on Monday, and each of the 11 declared candidates needs to secure at least eight backers from the Conservatives’ 300-plus elected lawmakers.
