Boris Johnson officially sworn in as Britain’s Prime Minister

Britain’s new Prime Minister has officially been sworn in, after meeting with the Queen.

Boris Johnson is now the 77th Prime Minister, after visiting Buckingham Palace where Queen Elizabeth asked him to form a government.

It follows the resignation of Theresa May, after many failed attempts to negotiate the Brexit deal.


In his first speech as Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has promised that Brexit will go ahead, with or without a deal from the European Union.

“We are going to fulfil the repeated promises of parliament to the people and come out of the EU on October 31, no ifs or buts,” he said outside no.10 Downing Street.

It’s understood that cabinet is in the midst of a major clean out, with 17 ministers either sacked or resigned.
