Conservatives Set to Win Massive Majority in UK Election: Exit Poll

LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed to “get Brexit done” in central London during a Conservative Party event following the results of the general election on Friday morning, having made a net gain of 47 seats in Britain’s national election with just two seats left to declare.
In a landslide win, the Conservative Party secured 364 seats in the Houses of Parliament, making Boris Johnson’s party the largest Tory majority since 1987. The Conservatives needed 326 seats total to win.
It served as a crushing defeat for the opposition Labor Party. Jeremy Corbyn, Labor party leader, announced he was to step down after a “process of reflection,” having secured 203 seats in the election.
“We did it, we pulled it off didn’t we,” Johnson began to a cheering crowd, adding that the Conservatives had “broken the deadlock” and “smashed the roadblock.”
British Home Secretary Priti Patel said it puts Johnson on course to carry out his pledge to end Britain’s membership of the European Union (EU) within weeks.
It would be enough to give Johnson the majority he needs to pave the way for Britain’s exit from the EU on Jan. 31, 2020.
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, of the Labor Party, described the result as a catastrophe.
McDonnell said it was clearly a Brexit election and many voters had opted to use their votes to get the question of Britain’s EU membership out of the way.
