Downing Street: "No immediate threat".

Panicked Downing Street sycophants and lickspittles were said to be running around in circles this morning, as America's ambassador to the UK said relations between the UK and the US are going to be "sensational" now that Boris Johnson is nominally in charge.

The unwarranted attack of Trump-style hyperbole on the integrity of the United Kingdom forced so-called Prime Minister Boris Johnson to call an emergency meeting of the COBRA committee to decide the government's response. The intelligence and security agencies provided updates on the latest information they have, while senior police officers and cabinet ministers were also in attendance at the meeting in Whitehall, along with top officials.

Woody Johnson (no relation, or is he?) had earlier told the BBC that Boris Johnson and Donald Trump have a lot in common in their leadership styles and desire to "get things done".

The US president has welcomed Mr Johnson's rise to power, saying he would do a "great job", and even suggesting he is "Britain's Trump", despite the PM's past criticism of Mr Trump as "stupefyingly ignorant".

A statement from Downing Street later assured British citizens that, despite turning up the threat level to 11, there is no "immediate" threat to their safety and wellbeing. People should remain calm, and carry on about their business as usual while intelligence services continue to monitor the situation.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
