UK general election 2019: Key things to Learn from the UK’s parliamentary poll

  • Boris Johnson’s Conservatives win the election and are on track for a major bulk after winning seats in northern England who was in Labour hands for generations
  • Together with more MPs in parliament financing his EU divorce bargain, it means it is highly probable Brexit will proceed on January 31.
  • Labour chief Jeremy Corbyn called it a night and stated he wouldn’t lead his party into another election.
  • But it was not all fantastic news for Johnson: while it appears like he has solved the issue of a single referendum, another rears its head. The Scottish National Party were on track to win the majority of the chairs north of the boundary, opening the possibility of another referendum on autonomy from London. It compounded a lousy night for the party, who had campaigned on a chunk of a new vote Brexit or cancelling it altogether.
