Boris Johnson used his first speech as UK prime minister to express confidence over striking a Brexit deal with Brussels. Vowing to quit the EU by October 31, he attacked the “doubters, doomsters, gloomsters” who warn over the economic impact of a no-deal Brexit. Johnson succeeded Theresa May after meeting with the Queen at Buckingham Palace earlier on Wednesday. On Wednesday evening, Johnson unveiled his cabinet of senior ministers — in a major overhaul seen as a ruthless drive to deliver his Brexit objectives. The main appointments saw ex-home secretary (interior minister) Savid Javid become Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister) —while arch-Brexiteers Dominic Raab and Priti Patel return to government, as foreign secretary and home secretary respectively. Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the hardline pro-Brexit European Research Group, becomes leader of the House of Commons. Other prominent “leavers” such as also Andrea Leadsom, Theresa Villiers and Gavin Williamson all return to government. READ MORE: Who got the top jobs in Boris Johnson’s new government?
