Johnson may end his career as a politician and start writing books, writes the Telegraph. The British publishing house is waiting for him to complete work on Shakespeare's biography – it should have been released back in 2016
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who announced his resignation, is considering leaving politics for next election, according to The Telegraph.
According to the sources of the publication, Johnson is not going to give up his parliamentary mandate right now, but at the same time he is not sure whether he should remain in the House of Commons, as his predecessor Theresa May did.
One of the possible options for Johnson— return to journalistic activities or lectures, the newspaper writes. Publishing House Hodder & Stoughton expects from him a biography of William Shakespeare, which was supposed to be released back in 2016 on the 400th anniversary of the playwright's death. Johnson received an advance of £88,000, but the publisher “agreed to delay publication until a more appropriate time” after the politician was appointed Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom.
In April, Johnson expressed confidence that, despite the scandal surrounding his figure due to parties on Downing Street in the midst of of the coronavirus pandemic, he will remain in the prime minister's chair and will be able to participate in the next parliamentary elections scheduled for 2024.
However, on July 7, amid the resignations of members of the British government, he nevertheless announced that he was leaving the posts of leader of the Conservatives and prime minister. A number of ministers left their positions due to another Johnson scandal involving the appointment of government member Chris Pincher, who was accused of sexual harassment of men. Johnson will continue to serve until the party elects a new leader.
