Conservatives win big majority in United Kingdom election to pave way for Brexit

Conservatives win big majority in United Kingdom election to pave way for Brexit

The victory will allow Johnson to push his withdrawal deal through Parliament which could see the United Kingdom leave the European bloc at the end of January.

According to BBC, the survey taken at United Kingdom polling stations suggests the Tories will get 368 MPs - 50 more than at the 2017 election - when all the results have been counted. If Johnson fails to gain enough backing, he may have to resign and Labour could instead form a majority with the Liberal Democrats or the Scottish National Party.

With results from across Britain indicating the exit poll was accurate, Johnson's bet on a snap election has paid off, meaning he will swiftly ratify the Brexit deal he struck with the European Union so that the United Kingdom can leave on January 31 - 10 months later than initially planned. To get Brexit done.

She added: "We will not hang around obviously". So it looks like we have a in line with//that aren't entirely in line with recent opinion polls.

Labour's Gareth Snell announced his own defeat ahead of the result in the Brexit-backing former stronghold of Stoke-on-Trent Central and called for the resignation of Mr Corbyn.

"That's exactly what we said we would do in the general election campaign - deliver on the priorities - people's priorities and pledges that we've made throughout the campaign, including in our general election manifesto".

Liberal Democrat candidate for Fareham Matthew Winnington said he is "not surprised" by the exit poll.

"It gradually passes over to Long-Bailey, Pidcock or Thornberry and they say: "We just carry on, and carry on, and carry on". But if it is anywhere near this, it is extremely disappointing".

Is the game up for Jeremy Corbyn? Early results showed the Brexit Party had poached a significant number of voters from Labour.

Tory Ian Levy edged out Labour to seize the seat with a majority of just 712, and thanked "Boris" in his victory speech. Labour's vote share fell across the board in the poll, but declined much less in London and England's other major cities than it did in the nation's postindustrial towns.

Conservative member and Portsmouth councillor Terry Norton said: 'I am absolutely buzzing from this result.

The candidate thinks leader Jo Swinson has faced a "big learning curve" in the first four months as leader and its going to "take time" for the party's prospects to improve, the candidate said. "We've got the opportunity to get Brexit done and get everything else that we promised as well".

The prime minister has said he hopes the Conservatives' victory will bring "closure" to the Brexit debate and "let the healing begin". "We broke the gridlock, we ended the deadlock, we smashed the road block", Johnson told cheering supporters on Friday.

"To command an overall majority in the House of Commons you need 326 MPs". 'I think it was very hard to make breakthroughs in the broadcast media with us not being part of the leaders debate'.

If the exit poll is accurate and Johnson's bet on a snap election has paid off, he will move swiftly to ratify the Brexit deal he struck with the European Union so that the United Kingdom can leave on January 31 - 10 months later than initially planned.

"That gives us now in this new government the chance to respect the democratic will of the British people, to change this country for the better, and to unleash the potential of the entire people of this country", he said. "We have put public ownership, a green industrial revolution, an end to austerity centre stage and introduced new ideas, such as plans for free broadband and free personal care".

"I will not lead the party in any future general election campaign", said Corbyn said before adding that there needs to be "a process of reflection" about Labour's direction. So the likelihood has to be that the pollsters have got it right again in 2019.
