The new Prime Minister is expected to move into 10 Downing Street with his 31-year-old girlfriend in the next few weeks. A new poll found while the public are evenly split on the couple living together, parents wouldn’t be “happy” if their daughter married Mr Johnson, 55, according to The Mail on Sunday. The couple are expected to get married after Mr Johnson’s divorce from wife Marine comes through.
A Deltapoll for the The Mail on Sunday found the public are split 33 percent each on whether Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds should live together in No10.
While only 16 percent of parents would be “happy” if Mr Johnson married their daughter, a total of 57 would he “sad”.
Despite this Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came much lower with a net happiness rating of minus 63 as parents voted on whether they would want their daughter to marry him.
In the same question, US President Donald Trump pushed the figure to minus 69.
The survey sampled 2,001 people between July 25 and 27.
The public’s opinion comes as Mr Johnson unveiled plans to “turbo charge” regional growth and prosperity with major infrastructure projects.
The new Prime Minister gave the go-ahead to a £3billion North of England rail project to build a trans-Pennine route between Manchester and Leeds.
He also claimed that spreading economic opportunity around the country far beyond London and the South East will be a key priority for his premiership.
The news comes as Mr Johnson can legally pull the UK out of the EU on October 31 even if he loses a vote of no confidence and his new Government collapses, according to Brexiteer Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.
Mr Cox said there is no legal basis that would restrict new Prime Minister Mr Johnson from enforcing Brexit even if the UK was in the midst of a general election.
Despite Mr Johnson on Friday insisting he had no plans to call a snap general election, he could still face a vote of no confidence when the summer recess is over and Parliament resumes in September.
Though senior figures believe Mr Johnson is legally entitled to disregard tradition should a seven-week general election clash with the Halloween Brexit deadline – the third after former leader Theresa May begged the EU for a delay twice.
