Boris tipped to replace Cameron
Instantly recognisable with his mop of golden hair, Brexit figurehead Boris Johnson once again proved he has the golden touch after claiming a stunning referendum victory, a knack that could propel him to Downing Street.
The Conservative lawmaker proved a popular focal point of the "Leave" campaign, evidenced in the standing ovation that greeted his pledge in the final stretch to make the referendum "this country's independence day".
However, he is now firm favourite to replace David Cameron as the PM stepped down in the wake of Brexit, but would face a difficult task in uniting the Tory party behind him following a bitter campaign. His aura could also be tarnished if his airy predictions of relative post-Brexit calm were blown away by the predicted financial whirlwind.
