They call him Britain Trump

So the UK has decided to join us in Crazytown. I don’t recommend it!

Boris Johnson has been elected new Conservative leader in a ballot of party members and will become the next UK prime minister.

He beat Jeremy Hunt comfortably, winning 92,153 votes to his rival’s 46,656.

The former London mayor takes over from Theresa May on Wednesday.

Donald Trump told an event in Washington “a really good man is going to be the prime minister of the UK now,” and Mr Johnson would “get it done”, referring to Brexit.

The president added: “They call him Britain Trump. That’s a good thing.”

No, it isn’t. It really isn’t.

Princess Ivanka was quick to send her congratulations.

Kingston’s all right. It’s on the other side of the river from Hampton Court and Bushy Park. Pleasant enough but not much to be Prime Minister of.
