Johnson set for next British PM: poll


Boris Johnson looks set for a landslide victory over rival Jeremy Hunt in the race to become Britain’s next prime minister. According to a YouGov poll Johnson is backed by 74 per cent of Conservative Party members with Hunt languishing at 26 per cent. The survey also suggests that the vast majority of the 160,000 grassroots party members who will receive their ballot papers this weekend don’t believe Hunt’s claim that he’s prepared to take Britain out of the European Union without a deal. Only 27 per cent think Hunt would do so, compared with 90 per cent for Johnson.
