"That's one giant step for Great Britain!'

The remaining Cabinet members decided to move Boris Johnson out of Number 10 Downing Street as soon as possible.

They awarded him the constituency of Notting Hill.

Prime Minister Hugh Grant performed the stair dance all the way down the staircase, across reception and to the entrance of Buckingham Palace.
