Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson drives a JCB through a symbolic wall with the Conservative Party slogan 'Get Brexit Done' in the digger bucket, during an election campaign event at the JCB manufacturing facility in Uttoxeter, England, Dec. 10, 2019. The U.K. election in December 2019 was basically about one issue: Brexit. General elections in the U.K. are typically held in the spring or early summer. But in the fall of 2019, the recently-appointed Prime Minister Boris Johnson gambled on holding one on Dec. 12, when most people just want to get ready for Christmas and would rather think of anything but politics.
