Boris is UK’s next PM

Boris Johnson is the new leader of the Conservative Party – and, from tomorrow, the country’s next Prime Minister.

He beat rival Jeremy Hunt by a handsome majority – 92,153 votes to 46,656.

Nearly 88% of eligible Tory voters cast a ballot.

Mr Johnson, 55, takes over tomorrow after Theresa May delivers her final Prime Minister’s Questions in the Commons before she officially resigns to the Queen.

Boris will then be summoned to the Palace and asked to form a government.

It will, however, be a government with a virtually non-existent majority and beret of ministers.

The latest to resign is Anne Milton at the education department.

One of the first people to congratulate Mr Johnson was US President Donald Trump.

He added to his tweet “He’ll be great!”.

In his acceptance speech Mr Johnson said his government must “re-energise the country”.

He added he’d “deliver Brexit, defeat Corbyn, and unite the country”.
