Boris Johnson vows Brexit in 99 days as he becomes Prime Minister

Political Editor

Standing in Downing Street for the first time as Prime Minister, Boris Johnson promised the British people that Brexit will be dealt with in 99 days.

Branding his critics as “doomsters”, he said those who bet against Britain would “lose their shirts”.

This evening, Mr Johnson has cleared out more than half of Theresa May’s cabinet.

His new cabinet is taking shape now. Sajid Javid is the new Chancellor, Dominic Raab is Foreign Secretary and there’s more to come.
