Boris Johnson said it was an "extraordinary honour and privilege" to be elected Tory leader.
But what did you think of the decision to elect Boris as our next leader? Here's a flavour of what you had to say:
Omg it’s like a comic story
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse
Well done Boris ,now go and honour the result of the majority and get our country back.
Simon Michael Preston
As long as his brains are in gear and mouth is engaged it might just work, instead of firing off in neutral
Mark John Duggan
Congratulations Boris..best man won..l think he is a very clever man.
Patricia Ann Davis
Give him a chance. We do not know yet what he will do. Everyone in a new job needs to be given that chance.
The best endorsement of all came from Mr Trump - now that make me even more worried.
If he wasn’t so dangerous I’d be laughing
Great so the guy who had to resign as mayor before he was fired is now prime minister.
Let's hope he isn't really the idiot he acts and actually has a strategy for dealing with the brexit fiasco. It will be bad for the uk whatever as we are just weakening ourselves by leaving but it has to be done. I don't believe he will do no deal, he will botch it, blame others and call an election instead where Corbin will have no chance. Then he will have the power to do whatever he wants to make the rich richer!
Let's hope he delivers Brexit and deals effectively with all issues. The vast majority of us on here wouldn't cope with what Prime Minister has to deal with, and all for just £150k pa.
Less than 0.25% of the population voted for him to be PM, but his actions will affect us all
