Boris Johnson And Conservatives To Win Clear Majority In UK – See How, Exit polls indicate Boris Johnson and the conservative party is set to win a clear majority in the U.K.

Now This monumental win would clear the way for Brexit to become official at the end of January 2020.

 

FOLLOWING  THE DEVELOPING FACTS: Boris Johnson looked set Thursday to stay on as prime minister and win a huge majority in the British Parliament, according to an exit poll published as voting closed in what has been called the most important election in a generation.

However Johnson’s ruling Conservative Party was predicted to win 368 seats in the House of Commons, an increase on the 298 it held going into the election, according to a poll released just after 10 p.m. local time (5 p.m. ET) Thursday. There are 650 seats in the Commons and a party needs to have at least half to command a majority.

Now If the poll reflects the final results, the United Kingdom is all but certain to finally leave the European Union on Jan. 31, more than three and a half years after the Brexit referendum in 2016. A divided and deadlocked Parliament had previously blocked Johnson’s withdrawal deal multiple times, prompting this election.

However If he wins the commanding majority that the exit poll predicted, Johnson will visit Queen Elizabeth II to be invited to form the next government, a constitutional formality.

Johnson is the 14th prime minister since the queen took the throne in 1952 — the first was Winston Churchill. Johnson’s Conservative bested the opposition Labour Party, which stood on a socialist platform to curb the power and influence of big business in favor of workers’ rights and was predicted to win just 191 seats, way below the numbers needed to form a government outright.

As we speak Labour has for weeks been behind the Conservatives in opinion polls, while its leader Jeremy Corbyn has a more unfavorable personal rating than Johnson and is disliked in some traditional Labour heartlands.

Following Report from  Dailymail, Boris Johnson hailed his new blue-collar Tory army today as it emerged he is on track to secure a staggering landslide in the election battle – with Labour’s ‘red wall’ of Brexit-backing strongholds imploding.

Now A dramatic exit poll shows voters handing the Tories a massive 368 seats in the first December election for nearly a century, with Labour languishing on 191 – down 71 on 2017.

However The bombshell numbers would give a huge Commons majority of 86, the biggest since Margaret Thatcher’s triumph in 1987, and are equivalent to a 10-point lead in the popular vote.

By contrast Jeremy Corbyn looks to have stewarded the party to its worst performance since 1935 – despite his allies claiming earlier that high turnout might have helped him pull off a surprise.

Early results bore out the extraordinary findings, with the Tories overturning an 8,000 majority to rip the former mining area of Blythe Valley from Labour’s grip for the first time ever.

The party’s candidate won by 700 votes after securing an incredible 10.2 per cent swing. There were also enormous movements from Labour to the Conservatives in Houghton & Sunderland South, and Newcastle Upon-Tyne Central – although the party held on.

Also the exit poll sparked scenes of jubilation in CCHQ, with staff singing and dancing following a month of brutal political struggle as Mr Corbyn tried desperately to sell his hard-Left agenda to the UK public.

Furthermore the SNP are predicted to get 55 MPs – approaching a clean sweep in Scotland – and the Lib Dems have effectively stalled on 13 after a dismal all-out Remain campaign by leader Jo Swinson – who might now lose her own East Dunbartonshire seat.

Now Without explicitly claiming victory this evening, Mr Johnson tweeted a ‘thank you’ to ‘everyone across our great country who voted, who volunteered, who stood as candidates’.
