Boris Johnson Wins, Labour Loses Big - Brexit?

 I’d suggest that Boris Johnson’s win ties directly with the massive British desire to exit the EU.
But can the aspirations  of the majority result in their desired exit?  Certainly Boris is a globalist and can’t be trusted to carry out the desires of the people. We’ll see what occurs.
 Corbyn appears to have run a dysfunctional campaign. Or at least that’s how the media spun it?

Boris needs to work on his posture- terrible head forward position. He'll be, if he's not already, a hunchback


Yesterday's general election in the U.K. delivered a landslide win for Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Most other parties got eviscerated.

The victory was only partly due to him. The weakness of the opposition Labour Party had more than a bit-part in the drama of the last few weeks.

Johnson's victory gives the ruling center-right Conservative Party an overall majority of 364 seats in the House of Commons, or 56% of the total 650 available. It is the biggest win since Margaret Thatcher's landslide win in 1987. One seat remained undecided at the time of writing.

"This was the worst result of Labour in 80 years," states a recent report from New York-based bank Brown Brothers Harriman.
Part of the appeal of the Boris Johnson-led Conservative Party is that he promised to get Brexit done and leave the European Union. Increasingly the British people are sick of the Brexit delay.

The 2016 referendum indicated the people wanted to leave the European Union. Whether or not most people still want to leave or not, an even more significant majority would seem to want the impasse to end.

In other words, the public's message to the government is poop or get off the pot. And that's something Johnson promised to fix, one way or the other.

Forbes is framing the Brexit vote as the people just wanting a resolution but not necessarily an out- I’d disagree with that.

But Johnson's Brexit pledge is only part of the story.

The Liberal Democrats, decisively wanted to remain in the E.U. If resolving the matter of either staying or leaves once-and-for -all was the only question, then the result may have been significantly different.

The deciding factor should probably rest at the feet of Jeremy Corbyn, who ran a campaign rife with what look like elementary missteps.
