Boris Wins Big
Prime Minister Boris Johnson led his Conservative party to a resounding win in the hard-fought British election. Early election results indicated the Tories had won 368 seats, a comfortable majority of the 650 seats in parliament. The Labor party managed to win only 203 seats, the party’s worst showing since 1935. As one television reporter noted, years of infighting over Brexit had led to ‘Brexhaustion’, and an exasperated electorate gave two thumbs up to the Conservatives’ simple, yet effective slogan of “Get Brexit Done”.
