SCRIPT
Anti-Brexit protesters picketed outside the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in London on Tuesday after former foreign secretary Boris Johnson won the Conservative Party leadership contest, meaning he will become the UK's next prime minister.
"Boris Johnson is the figure head standing in the way of us getting a democratic vote to reverse Brexit," said Thomas, a student.
Nearly 160,000 party members voted over the past two and a half weeks to name the successor to Theresa May, who resigned as party leader on June 7 after her Brexit proposals were rejected.
Johnson was seen as a favourite to win the contest but several senior officials said they will not work in his government.
He will officially take over May's job on Wednesday after she tenders her resignation to the Queen.
