Boris Johnson has been elected prime minister of the United Kingdom.
The count was:
- Hunt: 46,656
- Johnson: 92,153
- Turnout: 87.4% (there were just under 160,000 eligible Tory voters), reported Zero Hedge.
Johnson is expected to force Brexit at the end of October, with or without a deal. The ‘Remainers’ obviously plan to try and stop him. Most of May’s cabinet have resigned before Boris could fire them.
