Here is a short review of who was pro and against Boris Johnson when he took the office.

How many of the Tory members voted for Boris?

The final count was announced on Tuesday at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in London and he won 92,153 votes. Jeremy Hunt won 46,656 votes and almost 90% of the Conservative members voted.

Wile he’s got the clear support from the majority of the Tory members, many voices from the opposition and even from his own party are showing less excited about his mandate as PM for the country.

Who are the Conservatives against Boris Johnson?

Just last week, Boris Johnson’s threat to take Britain out of the EU without a deal suffered a serious setback when close almost 40 rebels from the Conservative party, including chancellor Philip Hammond, mobilised in a bid to block it.

The show of strength by Conservatives against no-deal was a warning sign to Mr Johnson that when he becomes prime minister he will face formidable parliamentary opposition should he try to execute a hard exit from EU.

At least six high ranking conservatives from the actual government resigned under the prospects of having Boris as the next PM.

Among them Sir Alan Duncan, Foreign Office minister quit yesterday claiming that Johnson's expected victory would lead to a "crisis of government."

How opposition leaders reacted to the election of the new Tory leader?

From the opposition there was obviously no cheering.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, noted that Boris Johnson has been elected by “fewer than 100,000 unrepresentative Conservative Party members”and asked, again, for a GE.

New Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson stated that “Britain deserves better than Boris Johnson”only minutes after her election and one day before Boris was confirmed to be the new ory leader.

And last but not the least, the leader of the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage warned Boris Johnson that delivering Brexit as promised is a “do or die” pledge. And wished him well…

How did world leaders reacted to Boris Johnson election?

From the international community, Donald Trump was the first to congratulate Boris Johnson.

He was followed by less excited Chief European negotiator,  Michel Barnier and the Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

And there will be many more official reactions after his official appointment that is expected tomorrow.

Updates expected soon....

    He will switch on any position in an instant, if it suits his or his friends wealth and power.

  3. Tabby Cat says:

    I don’t trust him firstly because he has proven that he cannot be trusted – just look at his record on Brexit – firstly a remainer, then a leave campaigner with ‘that’ bus plastered with lies. Secondly, because he is a tory complicit in spreading mistruths and making the rich richer and the poor poorer.

    because he is a lying biggotted racist, he will say anything to get elected, and had been proven to do so repeatedly, and every time he does it, the media give him a free rein to do it more. his wife, his family, his boss, his party, his electorate, the country, he has lied to all and been caught , yet the media just says ‘oh its boris’ as though that excuses it. no other uk politician could have got away with it so freqquently and yet be given more free passes by the media.

    He is untrustworthy and fundamentally unreliable. Bluster and faux affability but not, at the end, that serious a prospect.
