GLA member for Redbridge and Havering Keith Prince is already backing Boris Johnson to be the next prime minister.

Talking to the Recorder following the UK’s referendum leave vote, Mr Prince said he was “euphoric”.

He admitted there will be a price to pay in the short term, but he believes this is a positive step for the future of the country.

“We will be able to take control of our destiny and take control of our borders.

“A small adjustment now will bring us more benefits in the future,” he said.
