This will really get the Remainiacs going…
Aussie PM Scott Morrison is full of praise:
He has a reputation for getting things done and making things happen. I wish him all the best as he charts the way forward for the UK. We have a great relationship with the UK and it will remain so with Boris. 🇦🇺 🇬🇧

Meanwhile Michel Barnier is the senior EU figure to send his congratulations, optimistically tweeting that Boris can now “facilitate the ratification” of May’s failed Withdrawal Agreement. He may be in for a nasty shock…
We look forward to working constructively w/ PM @BorisJohnson when he takes office, to facilitate the ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement and achieve an orderly #Brexit. We are ready also to rework the agreed Declaration on a new partnership in line with #EUCO guidelines.

Boris has also had a congratulatory message of sorts reminding him of another crisis he’s inheriting from May from the Iranian foreign minister. Who surprisingly has twice as many Twitter followers as him…
The May govt’s seizure of Iranian oil at behest of US is piracy, pure & simple.
I congratulate my former counterpart, @BorisJohnson on becoming UK PM.
Iran does not seek confrontation. But we have 1500 miles of Persian Gulf coastline.These are our waters & we will protect them pic.twitter.com/svEqmEHQBM
