The turn out for the vote was 87.4% and 509 votes rejected.

Boris won with 92.153 votes to Jeremy Hunt’s 46.656.

Johnson will be installed as PM just after around 1 pm tomorrow, and in downing street by the evening.

The crowds outside of the QE2 Centre in London were very vocal and seemed very unhappy, this did not help presenters on live TV who repeatedly apologised for some of the offensive words used by the crowd.

Reshaping the new government will be hard for Johnson with some people like Philip Hammond resigning and more to come.

A fresh start to deliver Brexit and Unite the party will be incredibly hard to do, and we believe a general election will be called in the next couple of months.

Jeremy Corbyn responded to Boris Johnson win by tweeting “Boris Johnson has won the support of fewer than 100.000 unrepresentative Conservative Party members by promising tax cuts for the richest, presenting himself as the banker’s friend and pushing for a damaging No Deal Brexit…..But he hasn’t won the support of our country”

He went on to say in another tweet “Johnson’s no-deal Brexit would mean job cuts, higher prices at the shops, and risk our NHS being sold off to the US corporations in a sweetheart deal with Donald Trump”

Without question Boris Johnson only really cares about the richest in society and will become a much more brutal leader to the most vulnerable in society, we agree that the people of the country should have been allowed to vote who they wanted to be the PM and not just Tory members many of which only signed up to vote for Johnson, it was a flawed vote, so now the right thing to do would be to hold a General Election.
