- What do we know about Mr. Johnson

Live coverage from Downing Street as Boris Johnson prepares to take full responsibility as the new British Prime minister, and unfolding the day’s political developments as it happens.

But, in reality, the process of reshuffling is already underway, while on the other hand, there seems to be a standoff from his main rival for the leadership, ‘Jeremy Hunt’. However, the current foreign secretary has objected to a demotion to Defence secretary, except he gets one of the cabinet’s most senior jobs.
Though the decision isn’t Hunt’s, Boris Johnson would have to decide whether to give in or could walk away. It’s understood, not terrible if Hunt left the cabinet, for example, ‘Michael Gove’ in 2016 was sacked by the outgoing prime minister ‘Theresa May’, though Gove came third in the leadership contest. Despite Boris Johnson’s claims based on his willingness to contemplate a no-deal Brexit, but the fact is, Johnson will go with a deal.
