Crowd boos Boris "Leave" Johnson as he leaves his home

Old Etonian and former London Mayor Boris Johnson — a kind of English Trump figure — campaigned heavily for the Leave side in Brexit, making it a proxy war for his struggle to discredit his old school rival David Cameron and wrest control of the Tory party for his faction.

As he made his way to a press-conference on the morning after the Brexit vote, he had to run a gauntlet of booing Londoners who lined the street outside his home, booing him as he fought through the lines to reach an Addison-Lee town car.
