Responding to the announcement that Boris Johnson has won the Conservative leadership race, Liberal Democrat Leader Jo Swinson said:
"Boris Johnson has finally got his hands on the keys to Number 10, but he has shown time and time again that he isn’t fit to be the Prime Minister of our country.
"Whether it is throwing people under the bus or writing a lie on the side of one: Britain deserves better than Boris Johnson.
"If we want to defeat nationalism and populism, we need to give people an alternative vision for our country. It’s the Liberal Democrats who can lead the renewal our country needs."
