Boris Johnson DENIES leadership bid vowing to end the 'political kerfuffle' since election

During a visit to New Zealand’s parliament buildings in Wellington, Mr Johnson was met with shouts of “Boris for PM”.

But the Foreign Secretary played down the idea of replacing Mrs May.

He said: “I also spotted a protester who took a diametrically opposed view.

“What the British people want to see is a government that gets on with the job and they’ve got that with Theresa and we are going to deliver a great Brexit deal.

“A deal that works for our European friends, for the UK, but also works for New Zealand.

“What the British people want to see is us getting on with the job. They see no need for any more political kerfuffle.”

He added the June 8 vote, in which the Conservative Party lost its Commons majority, “did not evolve entirely in the way the Government had hoped or would have wanted”, but insisted the current situation is stable.

He added: “But the Labour Party did not win, they were 50 seats behind.

“We have a workable system of getting stuff through the House of Commons… we have a workable majority with our friends from Northern Ireland.

“We are getting on with the business of governing, which is overwhelmingly what the British people want to see.”

Mr Johnson took the opportunity to say New Zealand would be “at or near the very front of the queue” for a post-Brexit trade deal.

Although Britain cannot sign trade deals while a member of the EU, Mr Johnson said: “We are leaving the EU, but we are not leaving Europe of course, and we are going to do we hope a great free trade deal with New Zealand.”
