9:02 am
brussels after this report. boris johnson is elected as the leader of the conservatives even. as a boy power's johnson once set he wanted to be world king now he's been crowned leader of britain's conservatives after a boisterous campaign his acceptance speech was full there now feature struck a conciliatory note do you think you've been friendly you've been good make should you be the fault of that cylinder ideas all of which i propose to steal. with. and above all i want to thank going leader to resign marry her extraordinary service to this party and to this country the country johnson inherits is mired in deep political crisis is most important task by far will be delivering while his
9:03 am
predecessor could rise the country we're going to get brits it done on october 3rd it was going to take advantage of all that jesus said it will bring in a new spirit of can do and we are once again going to believe in ourselves and what we could achieve unlike some slumbering giant we're going to rise and pin off the guy ropes are so tight and negativity the pose may have been lived but johnson will struggle to get brussels to agree to his bags of plans at home his party is divided and its majority in parliament is wafer thin the new prime minister also divides public opinion i don't think he's a great leader and i don't think he's going to get is out of the by how we know i think that's just a fantasy and i think he's going to be like a headless chicken running around race munster because he doesn't have the ability to actually negotiate with his own party let alone the here i'm actually quite excited because i think we need a visionary leader we don't need to detail style that's what the civil service is
9:04 am
we need we need you know this thousands of them hiding around the corner. streets but what we need is a visionary. he's going to. be. the 1st. finding a way out of the braggs a quagmire and staying in power that may be rather more difficult than johnson cares to admit i let's go straight to downing street. how's the news being received where you are this morning as people prepare for boris johnson to become the new occupant in those rooms right behind you and. well friends and fans of boris johnson of course are ecstatic about the news that he will move into number 10 downing street today they were praising after. victory speech his optimism and his energy thinking about the standstill of the past months
9:05 am
and that there is finally new energy in downing street to see things through to get things moving here in the u.k. we've also heard from critics of course they are saying boris johnson way too colorful figure he is unfocused not detail oriented enough and he is generally unfit to be prime minister. especially from the opposition not from within the party so far overall i think the public there have been new polls and his favor ability is lower than when i started office but of course it comes with his character he's a very divisive figure here in great britain what we can say for sure it is going to be a huge day for boris johnson himself he's been working towards getting into the sacred halls behind me his whole life and he is looking forward to finally receive the keys to number 10 before he does be meeting with the queen today can you walk
9:06 am
us through what will be happening in the hours ahead. well it's a very exciting turn over a very quick turn over that we will see today to resume a of course bidding her for farewells here in downing street in parliament and afterwards to the queen she will hold a quick farewell speech and then move over to buckingham palace to resign officially and meet the queen there the queen of course being the constitutional head of state she's seen many many prime ministers resigning and going into office over the past years and decades that she's been holding that post the screen of course and then we will see a very quick turnover at buckingham palace boris johnson basically shaking hands with theresa may be going to the queen taking over his official post as prime minister and then we will see him moving into number 10 so in number 10 the turnover needs to be very quickly 50 percent of those employees civil servants they
9:07 am
stay on that's a matter of stability of course and continuity and then boris johnson has appointed his own staff of course they will he will be greeted with applause and then he will have to get to work because there are many many issues on the agenda we're expecting later today a major cabinet announcements from his science at the question there of course being will he appoint very much pro breaks to tears and has. said through and we're also expecting phone calls from world leaders for example from donald trump who yesterday already praised johnston as britain's trump saying he'll be great in office i'm not sure if boris johnson is very appreciative of comments like that but it's definitely interesting how this partnership between the us president and the u.k. prime minister is going to develop over the next weeks ok you mentioned he has a lot on his plate of course as he takes office later today what are going to be
9:08 am
some of his top priorities. well there is the iran crisis on the one hand of course a major priority he needs to deal with that immediately he needs to get that u.k. ship that is in iranian hands freed that's one thing but on the other hand it will dominate the agenda and that is why he got voted into number 10 because he promised that he will deliver until october 31st next deadline to leave the european union boris johnson said do a die come what may we will question here is how will he do that he hasn't presented a plan he says he wants to renegotiate with the european union or just leave with no deal at the end of october and it's going to be very interesting if he has enough members of parliament behind him and his own party to see that through. number 10. and we'll go to brussels in
9:09 am
a moment to find out what the european union thinks about boris johnson but 1st here's some other international reaction. now that he's smart. this is a britain they call him print shop and speak with saying that's a good thing that they like me over there that's what they wanted. what they need he'll get it done for us is good he's going to do a good job there are many different difficult issues to tackle together challenging times ahead of us i think it is very important to build up a strong and a good working relation because we have the duty to deliver something which is good for people in europe and in the united kingdom so i'm looking forward to working with him to the view and i'm looking forward to working with him as soon as possible not only on the european issues and the continuation of the negotiations obviously linked to brics it but also on the international issues that make up our daily lives and on which we are closely coordinated particularly with the british
9:10 am
and the germans whether that is the situation in iran or international security issues in this united ok let's get the view from brussels now with good of news about rigor good morning about the newly appointed european commission president ers along on the line we just heard from her she is somewhat ominously warned that there are challenging times ahead when it comes to bracks said is there any room in brussels for a compromise with the new british prime minister. but i think there's nothing mysterious in the words of it was enough on the line of course these are challenging times only $100.00 days left until next a good kicking if nothing happens and michele dunne year the e.u. she's negotiating already said that there is strong agreement cannot be read you go she added as post on signal to see the mons the only thing the european union can do is to alter the political declaration that comes with this agreement and this
9:11 am
declaration is about the future relationship of the e.u. in great britain this is not set in stone and it is something can be done but the bistro agreement is actually only an agreement to give britain more time a 2 year transition period to hand out a new relationship and now everybody's waiting here in brussels to see what sports those are actually has on its plate what is his plan ok well we already know that boris johnson throughout his career as a journalist as a former foreign minister has been highly critical of the european union is brussels prepared for a tougher town robust approach on brac said from london but can a clown get tough this is a question here he's perceived as as a lawyer as somebody very critical of the u.s. and somebody who's who's doing a show where he's not serious in the eyes of many petitions here and in brussels so . one wants to see if he can get serious and do have the it's actually and about
9:12 am
the toughness there is no real leverage for him what can he say he has to leave the e.u. as it stands now the only thing you can. threaten with is a no deal breck's it but this none orderly breaks it but britain more than it would harm europe so what is his leverage ok battery good for us in brussels thanks so much for that. now to the united states where the former special counsel robert muller is due to appear before 2 separate congressional committees today it was spending 5 hours answering questions about his investigation which looked into whether president trump's campaign colluded with russia during the 26th election but muller is famously known as a man of few words words and it's unclear whether committee members will be finding out any more than what he's already stated in his report. this summer's biggest blockbuster might not be coming to a theater near you but the committee rooms on capitol hill robert muller is to

9:14 am
spin begins the investigation did not establish a conclusive link between the trim campaign and foreign interference i'm having to take you to. no collusion no obstruction well not quite in a may press conference muller made his only public comments about the investigation they threw a lot of gray into trump's preferred black and white take. if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so we did not however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime the constitution empowers congress to do it justice department policy blocks charge try and remove a president from office democrats remain split over impeachment muller has said his verbal testimony today will go no further than the written report so like any big blockbuster the hearings could be this summer smash hit or a total flop here's some of the other stories making the news today russia and
