Boris Johnson SHOCK: The new Prime Minister’s real name is NOT what you think

0

BORIS JOHNSON will take over as Prime Minister on Wednesday after a landslide victory to take Tory leadership. But his real name might surprise you.

Other Cabinet appointments could include:

Theresa May will officially resign her post to the Queen today, and Boris Johnson will be invited to form a Government. After his victory, Mr Johnson said his priorities were to deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. He is expected to address the nation for the first time outside Downing Street at about 4pm BST.

But the man usually referred to just by his first name, or his nickname from his time as London mayor, ‘BoJo’, was in fact christened .

The ‘de Pfeffel’ part of the name has been passed down from his ancestor Baron Charles de Pfeffel, a German aristocrat.

Allegedly, his family and friends just call him ‘Al’, but he prefers Boris for his public persona.

Now, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson has the gargantuan task of getting the UK safely out of the EU on his hands.

First up, he will need to form his Cabinet.

Sources close to Mr Johnson say his top team will reflect “modern Britain”.

He has pledged to appoint at least one woman to one of the so-called “great offices of state”: the Treasury, Foreign Office and Home Office.

Conversations are said to be “ongoing” between Mr Johnson and his leadership rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Mr Hunt is allegedly firm that he won’t accept anything less than his current role, or becoming home secretary, chancellor or deputy prime minister as any other moves would be a demotion.

But Mr Johnson is said to be solute that Mr Hunt should not stay on at the Foreign Office.

Dominic Cummings, the former chief of the Vote Leave campaign, is expected to become a senior adviser to the new prime minister.

It is also confirmed that David Frost, a former ambassador and senior official at the Foreign Office, will be appointed as a key negotiator on Brexit.

  • Sajid Javid – Chancellor
  • Liz Truss – Business Secretary
  • Esther McVey – Chairman or International Development Secretary:
  • Dominic Raab – Justice Secretary or Home Secretary
  • Priti Patel – Chairman or Chancellor
