UK Elections – Conservatives Win Stunning Majority As Boris Johnson Remains Prime Minister – Brexit Inevitable

1 min


The Conservative Party in the U.K has swept aside Labour, winning a stunning parliamentary majority that’s the party’s largest since Margaret Thacher in 1978.

Boris Johnson remains as Prime Minister as the Tories won 364 seats, 78 more than the largest opposition the Labour Party, which won 203 seats.

The Scottish National Party (SNP) won 48 seats, the Liberal Democrats 11 seats and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) won 8 seats.

There’s only one seat left to be declared.

Boris Johnson thus wins the parliamentary majority the party failed to win in the last election, clearing the way for him to take the UK out of the European Union.

“We will get Brexit done on time by 31 January – no ifs, no buts, not maybe,” Johnson said in his victory speech.

“I will make it my mission to work night and day, flat out to prove that you were right in voting for me this time, and to earn your support in the future.

 “The people want change… We cannot and we must not let them down.” the PM added.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is expected to step down as party leader after overseeing the party’s worst election loss since 1935.
