DAILYKENN.com -- Nationalism took another step forward when Boris Johnson won the Conservative Party's vote to succeed British Prime Minister Theresa May. Johnson has been an outspoken supporter of Brexit and may have been given a boost by the success of the newly formed Brexit Party that threatens to divide the Conservative Party.
Johnson was the mayor of London just prior to the city falling into Muslim control under Sadiq Khan.

Britain’s next Prime Minister will be Boris Johnson after he won a ballot vote of Conservative Party members against Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, it was announced Tuesday.
Johnson, an avid supporter of Brexit and former Mayor of London, had been expected to clinch victory against Hunt. He will replace outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May Wednesday after she announced her resignation last month amid failure to lead the nation out of the European Union.
He won 66 percent of the vote, or 92,153 of the total 159,320 people eligible to vote. Hunt received 46,656 votes, and there were 509 rejected ballot papers. The turnout was 87.4 percent.
