UK Election Results 2019
The UK Prime Minister has surprised political experts by leading the Conservative Party for a win. The Conservative Party defeated the opposition Labor Party in the country’s one of the most dramatic electoral victory.
Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labor Party said that he will step down after a “process of reflection”. And Jo Swinson, the leader of the pro- Remain Liberal Democrat Party lost her seat as the Scottish National Party washed away the board in Scotland.
By the Friday morning, the Conservative Party had successfully secured 364 seats out of a total 650 seats in the House of Parliament and was well ahead of the Labor Party who had secured 203 seats. The Liberal Democrats were successful in getting hold of 11 seats, while the Scottish National Party boasted of big gains in Scotland with 48 seats.
With such results, Boris Johnson acquired a considerable majority in the House of Commons, which will now pave way for Brexit to take place by the end of January.
“We did it,” he said at a victory rally on Friday morning. “We broke the deadlock, we smashed the roadblock,” Johnson told a cheering room. “A new dawn rises on a new day.”
“You may only have lent us your vote, you may not consider yourself a natural Tory,” Johnson said. “Your hand may have quivered over the ballot paper before you put your cross in the Conservative box and you may intend to return to Labour next time round. And if that is the case, I am humbled that you have put your trust in me and that you have put your trust in us.”
“I, and we, will never take your support for granted,” the Conservative Party leader added.
The results mean that Brexit can happen by January 1 with “no ifs and buts” which will put an end to “all those miserable threats of a second referendum.”
He added: “And I say respectfully to our friend in the blue,12-star hat that’s it time to put a sock in the megaphone and give everybody some peace”
“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.”
