Staunch Brexiteer Boris Johnson has been elected as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom after winning the conservative party leadership following the resignation of Theresa May. Boris won with 66.4% of the vote (92,153) to Jeremy Hunt’s 33.6 percent (46,656). 139,318 votes were cast by conservative party members in the leadership race.
The former mayor of London and British foreign secretary has won the leadership election following the resignation of Theresa May who failed miserably to secure a Brexit deal with the European Union. The stage looks set now for a no-deal Brexit on the October 31st deadline.
US President Donald Trump personally endorsed Boris Johnson for Prime Minister and it looks like Boris will be far more cooperative with the US President than Theresa May has previously been. Theresa May and her ambassador to the United States Sir Kim Darroch have often obstructed and derided Trump since his presidency causing diplomatic outrage that is detrimental to the UK.
Boris has previously taken a harder stance on Islam than the total capitulation of Theresa May by claiming that Islam caused the Muslim world to be literally centuries behind the west. And this has created a Muslim grievance in literally every conflict they are involved in. He also claimed Burka’s look like letterboxes.
As expected opponents to Brexit have voiced their outrage on Twitter and social media.
