Watched by girlfriend Carrie Symonds outside of No10, the new prime minister said he was honored to be chosen to take over the acquisition of Theresa May.

Because the street was in the sun, Johnson said that he would & # 39; honor & # 39; and the & # 39; doomsters and the gloomsters error & # 39; would prove.

& # 39; The British people have had enough of waiting. It's time to act, & he said.

& # 39; Don't mind the backstop, the goat stops here. & # 39;

But he insisted that his plans go far beyond the Brexit, and he would boost the number of police officers, bring forward a new social care system and encourage education.

Johnson arrived in Buckingham Palace by car just after 3 p.m., despite demonstrators in the area trying to block his path briefly.

He was greeted by the monarch's assistants and brought into the building for his crucial audience – with photos showing the moment they shook hands.

Mr. Johnson's convoy pulled within minutes of Mrs. May's departure after he formally told the queen that she wanted to give up power.

She will also have advised the monarch to call Mr. Johnson – who was appointed her successor yesterday as Tory leader.

As the change emerged, Johnson deployed his forces for Brexit warfare.

The incoming prime minister has set a marker by appointing non-conformist Stem Laat Chief Dominic Cummings as a top adviser.

Mr. Cummings came up with the slogan & # 39; take back control & # 39; and supported the controversial claim that Brexit could release £ 350 million a week for the NHS.

But he is known for his abrasive style and MPs were concerned about the news of the appointment.

A Johnson supporter told MailOnline that he & # 39; lacks human skills & # 39; and was poorly equipped to handle the No10 pressure cooker. When the recruter heard, another MP said unbelievingly: & # 39; Really? & # 39;

A large number of other veterans of the successful EU referendum campaign in 2016 are also ranked tenth with Mr. Johnson.

Meanwhile, Brexiteers such as Priti Patel and Dominic Raab stand in line for comebacks to the cabinet.

Sajid Javid is fiercely tipped as the new Chancellor, as Johnson promises the & # 39; most diverse & # 39; top table ever made by the government.

But Jeremy Hunt can sit on his ear after apparently rejecting a step to defense – saying that he only accepts that he will stay as Foreign Minister, become Chancellor or Deputy Prime Minister.

Ms. May made a statement on leaving Downing Street and said that the & # 39; immediate priority & # 39; was to ensure the departure from the EU & # 39; in a way that works across the UK & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It is the greatest honor to serve as UK Prime Minister & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; Thank you for trusting me. & # 39;

Mrs. May, who sometimes seemed to choke on tears, expressed gratitude to her & # 39; greatest supporter & # 39; husband Philip, who accompanied her on the street for her short speech.

She said she hoped that & # 39; every girl & # 39; from her example would recognize that there is & # 39; no limit & # 39; depends on what they could achieve.

At one point the speech was interrupted by a demonstrator who & # 39; stop Brexit & # 39; cried, with Mrs. May's harsh answer: & # 39; I don't think so. & # 39;

Mrs. May came out of the famous black door after a final lunch with assistants and thank you staff.

She then went to Buckingham Palace to formally tell the queen that she would resign. The palace confirmed that it has stopped.

Mrs. May will be followed to see the monarch by Mr. Johnson – who spent the morning finishing his team for the government.

The emotional words came after she got a standing ovation from MPs in the Commons after her last PMQ & # 39; s.

The outgoing prime minister looked tearful when she applauded from the room after making her swan song before handing it over to Boris Johnson.

But Jeremy Corbyn and most Labor MPs refused to stand up for the tribute – after the experienced left winger ignored etiquette to attack Ms. May during her last Commons session.

He will then give a short speech in the street in front of the famous black door.

His girlfriend Carrie Symonds is not supposed to appear when Johnson comes in at number 10.

Wednesday evening: He will focus his attention on his first major task: his rescheduling of the cabinet.

He is expected to nominate the first few major jobs in the government, but leave the less important ones for the next day.

However, it remains to be seen whether he will dismiss those ministers that he does not want in his administration.

A number of large Tory beasts that have remained behind have said they are planning to resign before they can be pushed out.

They include Chancellor Philip Hammond and Justice Minister David Gauke.

Senior ministers, including Chancellor Philip Hammond, Minister of International Development Rory Stewart and Minister of Justice David Gauke, have made a commitment to follow her out the door.

They have resigned and made clear that they are not prepared to meet Mr Johnson's demand that all cabinet ministers undertake not to make a deal before Halloween if no agreement can be reached with the EU.

Mrs. May, who went to the shipping box hours before she would go to the Queen, was praised for her dedication by a series of MPs from different parties.

But Mr Corbyn used his six questions to say that she would have to join the uprising against the new prime minister to prevent No Deal.

Mrs May insisted that her successor had rightly promised to honor the result of the referendum.

While her husband Philip was looking from the gallery, Mrs. May said she had done her best to get a deal through Parliament, and he should be ashamed & # 39; because he prevented the UK from leaving.

& # 39; At every stage, his only interest was in playing party politics. Frankly, he should be ashamed of herself, & she said.

In a final stabbing reprimand, she told Mr. Corbyn: & # 39; As a party leader who has accepted his time, it may now be time for him to do the same. & # 39;

Mrs. May, who has served in the Tory front seat for 21 years, has also made it clear that she is planning her & # 39; duty & # 39; continue to perform as a Member of Parliament for Maidenhead following the resignation of No. 10.

Theresa May & # 39; s last speech as PM: the most important quotes

Theresa May last addressed the afternoon as prime minister this afternoon before going to Buckingham Palace to resign.

Here are the most important quotes from her last address on Downing Street.

Boris

& # 39; I wish him and the government all happiness in the coming months and years. & # 39;

On Brexit

& Much remains to be done – the first priority is to complete our exit from the European Union in a way that works for the entire United Kingdom.

& # 39; Success in that task can bring a new beginning for our country – a national renewal that can take us beyond the current impasse to the bright future that the British people deserve. & # 39;

A demonstrator called & # 39; Stop Brexit! & # 39; during the speech and Mrs. May answered: & # 39; The answer is: & # 39; I don't think so & # 39;. & # 39;

About PM

& # 39; It is the greatest honor to serve as UK Prime Minister.

& # 39; The heavy responsibilities are offset by the enormous potential to serve your country.

& # 39; But you cannot achieve anything alone. & # 39;

About inspiring women

& # 39; This is a country of ambition and opportunity and I hope that every young girl who has seen a female prime minister now knows for sure that there are no limits to what they can achieve. & # 39;

About her husband Philip

& # 39; Finally and especially I want to thank my husband Philip – who has been my biggest supporter and my closest companion. & # 39;

To conclude the session – which lasted more than an hour despite the fact that it was half planned – Ms. May said: & We are living through extraordinary political times. This House of Commons is rightly the center of those events.

& # 39; That is because of the vital link between every member of this Parliament and the communities, the Commons that we represent.

& # 39; That is the foundation of our parliamentary democracy and our freedom.

& # 39; And each of us, wherever we are and what we stand for, can be proud of that. & # 39;

The prime minister's voice faltered as she made her final comments: & # 39; That duty to my voters will remain my greatest motivation. & # 39;

Mrs. May was flanked on government banks by senior ministers, including Mr. Hammond and David Lidington – who also left the government.

The prime minister says she will continue her duties from the backseat if she encounters the questions from her last prime minister.

In the Commons she said: & # 39; This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues & # 39; s and others.

& # 39; After my duties in this House this afternoon, I will have an audience from Her Majesty the Queen.

"I will then continue my duties in this Parliament from the back seat where I will remain a Member of Parliament for Maidenhead."

After the PMQs session, Ms. May returned to No10, where she thanked staff behind closed doors.

They stood along the edges of Downing Street as the departing prime minister delivered her last words before she stopped.

When she announced her intention to resign in May, the Prime Minister was unable to hold back her tears.

Mrs. May goes to Buckingham Palace to submit her resignation to the Queen.

Mr. Johnson will follow her to form him a new government.

Johnson concepts in mood Leave veterans to new Downing Street team

Boris Johnson is deploying his troops for Brexit warfare today as he prepares for the reins on Downing Street.

The incoming prime minister has set a marker by appointing non-conformist Stem Laat Chief Dominic Cummings as a top adviser.

A large number of other veterans of the successful EU referendum campaign in 2016 are also ranked tenth with Mr. Johnson.

Meanwhile, Brexiteers such as Priti Patel and Dominic Raab stand in line for comebacks to the cabinet.

Sajid Javid is fiercely tipped as the new Chancellor, as Johnson promises the & # 39; most diverse & # 39; top table ever made by the government.

But Jeremy Hunt can sit on his ear after apparently rejecting a step to defense – saying that he only accepts that he will stay as Foreign Minister, become Chancellor or Deputy Prime Minister.

The new Tory leader – who as a child said he had the ambition to & # 39; world king & # 39; , his new team is assembling while he prepares and takes over from Theresa May this afternoon.

Looking for a & # 39; can-do & # 39; mind in the government and forcing Brexit by the end of October. Johnson will promote a new generation of ministers.

Speculation is increasing today that Mr. Johnson could call an unexpected election – with MPs saying he might have to change & # 39; the math & # 39; in the Commons to secure Brexit.

The incoming prime minister faces a huge challenge to deliver on his & # 39; do or die & # 39; promise by forcing the UK to leave the EU at the end of October.

The effective majority of the government is only two – and could fall to one if, as expected, the Conservatives lose an election in Brecon next week.

Johnson once again minimized the prospects of an early election when he spoke to Tory MPs after winning the party leadership yesterday.

But allies admit that he could have no choice in the midst of a potentially huge Remainer uprising against No Deal.

Meanwhile, the EU has rejected its calls to renegotiate the divorce package and halted the hated Irish border stop.

Speculation is about snap elections

Speculation is increasing today that Boris Johnson could call an unexpected election – with MPs saying he might have to change & # 39; the math & # 39; in the Commons to secure Brexit.

Johnson once again minimized the prospects of an early election when he spoke to Tory MPs after winning the party leadership yesterday.

But allies admit that he could have no choice in the midst of a potentially huge Remainer uprising against No Deal.

An increasing number of MEPs now believe that Mr Johnson could hold elections if Parliament blocked or delayed Brexit.

The speculation was fueled after Nigel Farage suggested being open to the idea of ​​an election pact and claimed that US President Donald Trump was completely behind so & # 39; n & # 39; unstoppable & # 39; alliance.

Mr. Johnson's main allies, however, have maintained that there is no deal with Mr. Farage's Brexit party, despite the clear threat they face to the chances of the Tories.

While & # 39; war games & # 39; of Mr. Johnson Westminster's options flood, a senior Tory MP told MailOnline that an unexpected election on October 24 was a & # 39; clear possibility & # 39; used to be.

They suggested that Mr. Johnson could spend August discussing his domestic agenda with striking announcements of more money for police and education.

& # 39; At the same time he is in Europe, and the message he is learning quickly is & # 39; f *** off we do not change & # 39;, & # 39; said the MP.

& # 39; He will be back in September, beating Corbyn in the park at PMQ & # 39; s, then turning around the second week and saying: & # 39; The problem with Europe is that they know that this Parliament is on their side. So I'm going to the country so we can do the math to get this done. & # 39; & # 39;

& # 39; That makes the Brexit party bankrupt and, with the domestic agenda, makes Labor bankrupt. & # 39;

Labor claims to cooperate with Tory rebels

Labor claimed to have had secret talks with Tory Remainer rebels on cooperation to collapse the Boris Johnson government within a few weeks of trying a No Deal Brexit.

Barry Gardiner said the opposition has the & # 39; nuclear option & # 39; had discussed to support a vote without confidence in Mr. Johnson's Brexiteer government.

The admission of the shadow international trade secretary reported that as many as a dozen senior Tories could support Mr. Corbyn if he called for a vote of no confidence in the new government.

Hammond, who was stopped today instead of being fired by Johnson, and former Chancellor Ken Clarke, both refused to exclude the drastic step that might make them lose the Tory whip.

Mr. Gardiner did not mention names, but asked if some Tories talked to Labor told the BBC & # 39; yes of course they are & # 39; but that every move depends on whether they were really willing to continue.

& # 39; We know that the Whips operation can be very powerful and very effective on the conservative side, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; So we need to be really clear (about) those conservative MPs who say they will act in the best interest of the nation – even as far as they vote their own conservative government – because they want us to be so concerned about the impact of no deal about the future of our country. & # 39;

Hammond, Stewart and Gauke STOPPING: Remaining exodus begins as ministers jump before being pushed by Boris Johnson and replaced by hardline Brexiteers

Philip Hammond led an exodus of other cabinet ministers upon leaving the government this afternoon before Boris Johnson takes over as prime minister and sends the UK to a possible No Deal Brexit.

The Chancellor honored a weekend promise to run away instead of being part of an administration that is committed to a No Deal Brexit.

He was followed by Justice Minister David Gauke and Assistant Secretary Rory Stewart, both of whom had long indicated their intention to resign before being fired by Mr. Johnson.

In his letter, published on Twitter, Mr. Hammond said that Mrs. May's successor should have the freedom to choose a Chancellor who is fully aligned with his policy position & # 39 ;.

In his letter, published on Twitter, Hammond (who is leaving number 11 today to attend PMQ & # 39; s) said that Mrs. May's successor should have the freedom to choose a chancellor who is complete tailored to his policy position & # 39;

He said: “We leave our successors real choices after a Brexit deal: the ability to choose within fiscal rules between increased government spending, lower taxes, higher investments or progress toward faster debt reduction – or a combination of all four.

& # 39; After a decade in which the aftermath of the 2008-09 recession meant that we had no choices, this is a luxury that our successors should use wisely. & # 39;

Others expected to stop de facto Prime Minister David Lidington. They follow three ministers who had already stopped.

They are all expected to join a Remainer resistance to any attempt by Mr Johnson to get Britain out of Europe without a Brexit deal on October 31.

The step is being taken to prevent him from being fired while installing hardcore Brexiteers in their work.
