(Newser) – It's been a rough week for Boris Johnson, with major setbacks for his Brexit strategy and the resignation of his own brother from the government. Friday brought a new kind of trouble, though of a lighter variety. The cameras were rolling as Johnson visited a farm in Scotland and lost control of the bull he was leading—it bumped straight into a police officer. The first paragraph of the Washington Post story: "The steaks have never been so high for Boris Johnson, who has vowed to steer Britain out of the European Union and lead the country forward."

In a more serious development, Britain's Parliament passed a law compelling Johnson to ask for a Brexit delay if no deal is in place by Oct. 19, per the AP. Johnson, who insists the UK must leave the EU even without such a deal, has said he'd rather be "dead in a ditch" than seek a delay. Business Insider makes the case that he might have no choice but to resign as prime minister. This heckler, via the BBC, surely wouldn't mind that. (Read more Boris Johnson stories.)
