Boris Johnson Wins UK Leadership Race, Will be Prime Minister
Making a brief but characteristically bumbling speech to the assembled party members after the results were announced, Mr Johnson said he would: "Deliver Brexit, unite the country, and defeat Jeremy Corbyn. And that's what we're going to do... I say to all the doubters, dude! We're going to energise the country, we're going to get Brexit done on October 31st and take advantage of all the opportunities it will bring in a new spirit of can-do.
"And once again we are
going to believe in ourselves and what we can achieve, and like a slumbering
giant we are going to rise and ping off the ropes of self-doubt and negativity
with better education, more police, and fantastic full-fibre broadband
sprouting in every household we are going to unite this amazing country and we are
going to take it forward."
