In a victory speech in central London Mr Johnson said: “With this election I think we’ve put an end to all those miserable threats of a second referendum.”

“You may only have lent us your vote and you may not think of yourself as a natural Tory.

“And as I think I said 11 years ago to the people of London when I was elected in what was thought of as a Labour city, your hand may have quivered over the ballot paper as before you put your cross in the Conservative box and you may intend to return to Labour next time round.
