Plaid Cymru’s Westminster leader Liz Saville Roberts said the victory of “clown” Mr Johnson was a “gift” to the cause of Welsh independence, which she claimed was now inevitable.
“The Conservative party has just thrown the UK out of the frying pan and into the fire,” she said.
“During the most serious political crisis in decades, a clown is set to become prime minister. But this is no joke.
“People will soon realise this isn’t as good as it gets. By electing Boris Johnson, the Conservative Party has given the Welsh independence movement a gift.
“With the election of Mr Johnson, the question of Welsh independence is not of ‘if’, but ‘when’.”
