Boris Johnson Meets with Elizabeth, Is New UK Prime Minister

 

From The Independent:

Boris Johnson has entered Downing Street as prime minister, replacing Theresa May after an audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The new Tory leader was asked to form a new government after Ms May ended her embattled three-year premiership with a speech outside Number 10. After addressing the nation on the steps of Downing Street, Mr Johnson will now begin the process of assembling his cabinet, with prominent Brexiteers lined up for promotions. Three pro-EU ministers, Philip Hammond, Rory Stewart and David Gauke, all resigned before he took office.

    A Detective Special .38. Yeah, it’s and old design, but it is from her youth, when she was in the Auxiliary Territorial Service, and it fits nicely in her bag.

    I thought this meeting was at the Queen’s place.  Does she carry her purse around when at home?  Can’t trust the staff? Or Boris?

    Max,

    A spare crown, make up mirror, a very small scepter, and the codes to launch a nuclear first…whoops can’t mention that last one.

    Damn it Boris, rise to the occasion!

    Regards,

    Jim

    Better to carry the handbag and have people wonder about why she is carrying it in her own home than do without the Police Special or open carry. The gun would lose half its effectiveness if people knew she had it.

    Who does royal decor?  That room looks like a sitting room in an Atlantic City NJ Hotel circa 1958. And who selected a raging blue Easter egg camouflage pattern for HRM to meet the PM? OMG!

    I think I’m going to pitch a home makeover show for royals to the Beeb or Bravo. Ratings monster!
