Boris Johnson, the Trump-loving prime minister of the United Kingdom, has suffered a string of humiliating defeats in Parliament this week, as his efforts to secure a majority for his plan to leave the European Union without a trade agreement have all gone down in defeat.
Johnson’s losing streak continued on Thursday outside of Westminster, as he was heckled by multiple people during a trip to West Yorkshire for what was supposed to be the launch of a national campaign to recruit tens of thousands of new police officers.
BBC News videos show that Johnson was accosted on the street by one upset voter who chided the prime minister for not being in active negotiations with the European Union to avoid a no-deal Brexit.
“You should be in Brussels negotiating!” the man shouted at him.
“We have been negotiating,” Johnson replied.
“You are not!” the man shouted back. “You’re playing games!”
In another exchange, Johnson shook hands with a man who smiled at him, looked him in the eye and said, “Please leave my town.”
“I will very soon!” Johnson replied.
In addition to this, a police officer appears to have fainted while standing directly behind Johnson during his speech on police recruitment — and Johnson continued making his speech even after he noticed he fell.

Jeanine Pirro pushes conspiracy theory 2016 election interference ‘apparently’ started in Ukraine
The United States intelligence community is united in the conclusion that it was Russia that interred in America's 2016 presidential election.
But Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro said that 2016 election interference "apparently" started in Ukraine.
The conspiracy theory underlying the false claim resulted in President Donald Trump seeking foreign election interference from Ukraine, the scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.
Pirro also said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Geoge Kent is a "bozo."
Video of Pirro's opening was posted on Twitter by President Donald Trump:
