    Boris Johnson Will Replace Theresa May as UK Prime Minister

    Boris Johnson Will Replace Theresa May as UK Prime Minister

    The UK faces an October 31 deadline for Brexit.

    Boris Johnson beat Jeremy Hunt today to win the Tory leadership in the United Kingdom, which means he will replace outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May.

    Johnson received 92,513 votes while Hunt only secured 46,656.

    From The London Times:

    The Queen will ask Mr Johnson to take over at No 10 tomorrow after Mrs May takes part in her last prime minister’s questions. His first act will be to appoint a cabinet, starting with a new chancellor to replace Philip Hammond, who has already made clear that he will quit before he can be sacked.

    Mr Johnson won 66 per cent of the vote. The margin ensures that he has sufficient authority to shape his government. Anything below 60 per cent would have caused him serious early issues.

    However, even with the support of the DUP, the Tories’ parliamentary allies, Mr Johnson will have a majority of only two if, as expected, the party loses a by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire on Thursday.

    Johnson needs to form his cabinet immediately so they can give him “approval for a new negotiating strategy” over Brexit. The UK faces an October 31 deadline for Brexit after three years of intense meetings with the European Union.

    The UK faces an October 31 deadline for Brexit.

    I prefer to think of it as the EU facing the deadline. It has benefited far more from British membership than Britain has.

    This is a great development.

    After Shakey Merkel’s recent support of the Goon Squad, she showed herself to not be an ally of the US. DEFINITELY not.

    Let Germany pay for us defending it – 100%, or give it to Russians already.

    If we pulled our military out of Germany and went to a friendly country like Poland, and if the Brits bought fewer German cars, Germany’s economy would make Spain’s look good.

    Leave it to the UK to choose the wrong one twice.
    Farage is who they need.

    I think that he’ll end up prime minister if Boris fails.
