I'm not sure why everyone is going nuts over this. You do realize that the UK is far more to the left than the US. They have universal healthcare as an example. And they were part of the European union. If you are admiring Boris right now, that means you think America can do a lot better.

Boris would have a sensible argument if it wasn't the fact his entire politician career is built on gestures (and arguably a lack of substance).

police are public servants. they should kneel before their masters. it's a small gesture.

The only time a man should kneel is when he asks the person he loves to marry him or to pick up his child.
