This combination photo shows Britain's Secretary of State for International Development, Rory Stewart, leaving 10 Downing Street in London, Tuesday, June 11, 2019, left, and Conservative Party lawmaker Boris Johnson speaking during the official launch of his leadership campaign, in London, Wednesday June 12, 2019. The populist and the pragmatist: of the ten candidates running to become Britain's next prime minister, they're the ones generating most of the buzz. The former is Boris Johnson, who ran London as mayor for eight years until 2016 and then became foreign secretary until his resignation last summer. The pragmatist is International Development Secretary Rory Stewart, the self-styled "anti-Boris," who accuses Johnson of selling the public "fairy tales" about a clean and simple exit from the EU.
