13/12/2019 Election result signifies realignment of UK politics ,,

Rather than a one-off attempt by voters to ‘get Brexit done’ this election looks more like a fundamental change

It has already become clear that the 2019 general election represents one of the more significant moments in postwar British politics: where the shock waves triggered by the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum have translated into a Conservative landslide in England and Wales and disaster for the Labour party.

Nearly 35 years after the end of the miners’ strike and the ensuing closure of the country’s pits, angry, frustrated voters in seats such as Blyth Valley, in Northumberland, have been prepared to elect a Conservative MP to end the Brexit wrangling – and to send Labour the message: we are not prepared to elect you.

13/12/2019 Brexit: Boris Johnson to act swiftly in bringing deal back to MPs ,,

Exit polls point to largest Tory majority since 1987, paving way for PM to achieve Brexit aims

Boris Johnson plans to bring his Brexit deal back to parliament next week, as his Conservative party was predicted to have its best general election result since 1987 after more than nine years in government.
