What Prime Minister Jeremy Hunt would do

It is clear that the prime minister faces the difficult task of winning over several different camps as he tries to rebuild authority after his vote of confidence.

Senior members of Mr Johnson’s cabinet have changed their minds about the results of no-confidence votes in years past, since Theresa May’s future was on the ballot.

After Mr Johnson’s 211-148 win, they stressed the importance of party unity, with one suggesting that a majority of just one person would be “enough” to remain in power.

Around the World: Boy saves Kyiv with his toy drone

A Ukrainian teenager who rides a skateboard has been hailed as a “hero” after using a toy drone to help his country’s armed forces repel Russians advancing on the capital. Andrii Pokrasa, 15, managed to spot the light of a convoy of military vehicles from his drone after being asked for help based on his experience with the devices. He shared the information with the Ukrainian military, who managed to destroy the convoy. Volodymyr Zelenskyy said it was “great news” that Boris Johnson had won his no-confidence vote, adding he was glad Ukraine had not lost a “very important ally”. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that a cafe’s newly created delicacy in honor of Mr Johnson and his signature unruly blonde hairstyle has made local headlines in Kyiv.
