Conservative Party elect racist, sexist, homophobic, serial liar and incompetent buffoon Boris Johnson as new leader

In an outcome that will surprise few, Conservative Party members have overwhelmingly chosen Boris Johnson – a serial liar and incompetent buffoon who has repeatedly spouted racist, homophobic and misogynistic slurs, and whose shameful voting record has always protected the interests of the rich and powerful over ordinary people – to be their new leader.

Johnson convincingly beat his rival, the Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, winning by 92,153 votes to 46,656 – a 66% share of the vote.

The new Tory leader is now expected to visit the Queen to assure her that he will be able to command a majority of MPs in the House of Commons.

The leader of the official opposition, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, is expected to call a vote of no confidence in the new Tory administration imminently.

Numerous Tory MPs have taken issue with Johnson’s stance on Brexit, with the new Tory leader consistently refusing to rule out leaving the EU with No Deal or even attempting to suspend Parliament in order to push an unmanaged exit through.

In addition, Johnson also has a long and sordid track record of racist, homophobic, and mysoginistic comments.

Furthermore, Johnson has been repeatedly exposed as an outright liar, and was even exposed colluding with an old school friend to beat up a journalist.
