The UK has a new leader. Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson became Prime Minister yesterday following Theresa May resigning in June. Mr Johnson, known as Boris, realized a childhood dream of becoming the UK's leader. As a child, he wanted to be king of the world. Prime Minister is a lesser role but he has a tough task ahead. The most important thing is to deliver Brexit and get the UK out of the European Union. Johnson vowed to do this by October 31st.

Boris Johnson went to Buckingham Palace to become the UK's 77th Prime Minister. Traditionally, the Queen asks a new appointee to form a government. Johnson then drove to 10 Downing Street - his official residence. His first job is to put people in top posts in his team. Johnson will take responsibility for the changes he wants. In his first speech to the nation as Prime Minister, he promised to spend more money on the police, education and social welfare.
