'He's tough' Trump congratulates Boris Johnson on British PM win

She would've been a fantastic secretary of state'.

The European Council president has welcomed Mr Johnson with a thinly-veiled criticism of his ability to retain details.

I wish you success and look forward to working with you to further strengthen India - UK partnership in all spheres.

While the Brexit project she touted on her arrival remains in tatters, May cited her role as Britain's second female prime minister as a positive record for women.

"I pay tribute to the fortitude of my predecessor but despite her efforts it has become clear that at home and overseas there are pessimists". "The British people have had enough of waiting".

He said the critics, the doubters and the gloomsters are wrong, adding: "The people who bet against Britain will lose their shirts".

"I have every confidence that in 99 days' time we will have cracked it. The time has come to act".

"The campaign is over and the work begins", - declared Boris Johnson, promising to energise the country.

The 55-year-old former foreign secretary and London Mayor met Queen Elizabeth II, who asked him to form a new administration, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

"I am about to leave Downing Street but I am proud to continue as the member of Parliament for Maidenhead. We will hear what the new prime minister has to say when he comes to Brussels", said Timmermans, while repeating that Brussels would not consider re-opening the withdrawal agreement talks.

For decades, the new prime minister has been expected to take part in the somewhat contrived set-piece of giving a cheery wave to the massed ranks of the media on crossing the threshold of No.10 for the first time - with a spouse, and perhaps their children. The heavy responsibilities are outweighed by the huge potential to serve your country, but you achieve nothing alone. When police were called to the candidate's home after neighbours heard an almighty row, Patel defended Johnson's "private life", calling the reports "politically motivated".

Chancellor Philip Hammond quit the government, along with development secretary Rory Stewart in the wake of Mr Johnson being elected.

Boris Johnson said he wanted to "change the country for the better" after he became the UK's new Prime Pinister.

She appeared to be fighting back tears as she was applauded out of the House of Commons chamber. But MPs burst out laughing as she tried to praise her successor.

May also expressed congratulations to Johnson, characterizing his victory as an important step in keeping the Labour Party and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn, out of power.

It's day one of Boris Johnson's premiership.

If nothing goes to plan during the Prime Minister's honeymoon period, then there is a possibility that a so-called "unity" grouping could be formed with MPs from other parties, in an effort to challenge Johnson.
