If the UK exit poll is correct, this election will be:— CNN International (@cnni) December 13, 2019
--The best Conservative result since Margaret Thatcher in 1987
--The worst Labour result in more than 40 years https://t.co/SOSZrSc6cZ
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has maintained the majority in the United Kingdom's third general election in the past five years, exit polls find. That means he will still in the driver's seat to deliver on Brexit and take the UK out of the European Union, three years on from when Brits voted to leave.
Had Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party prevailed, he would have likely insisted on a second referendum.
Brexit derailed the prime ministership of Johnson's predecessor Theresa May, whose negotiation with Brussels failed in Parliament a historic three times.
Boris Johnson’s victory over Jeremy Corbyn looks like the biggest Tory win since Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s. May even end up bigger — we’ll see how accurate the exit polls are. Looks like radical socialism & anti-Semitism aren’t big winners. Also Brexit almost guaranteed now.— JERRY DUNLEAVY (@JerryDunleavy) December 12, 2019
Phew. Exit polls suggest the UK rejects anti Jewish commie.— Eli Lake (@EliLake) December 12, 2019
Exit poll shows Tories winning a majority of 86. I'll believe it when I see it. https://t.co/CDGLWK2GM6— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) December 12, 2019
LABOUR UNDER 200— Tom STONKING MAJORITY Harwood (@tomhfh) December 12, 2019
As the results continue to trickle in, Labour candidates and supporters have begun to lay the blame on one man: Jeremy Corbyn.
Corbyn, the hard left, momentum, en masse entryism.— Tom Blenkinsop (@TomBlenkinsop) December 12, 2019
It was all there. The question is whether the party want to finally be honest and address this and remove it.
It’s actually very simple.
And this, from The Guardian:
"Ian Murray, who again may end up the only Labour MP in Scotland, has told Jeremy Corbyn to consider resignation, saying Labour lost the election because it had ignored the voters 'and delivered the most rightwing Conservative prime minister this country has ever seen.'”
Recent polling has revealed just how unpopular Corbyn truly is.
