Prime Minister Boris Johnson has led the Conservatives to a huge majority of 80 seats in the general election, winning working class areas who voted for Brexit.

After all the results were called in the election, the Conservatives were left with 365 seats, giving them a stomping majority of 80, above and beyond the expectations of the polls, pundits, and the public, who were expecting either a small majority of 20 to 30 seats, or another hung Parliament. The results make this the worst election for the Labour Party since 1935, as they only managed to pick up 203 seats, down 59 from the last election. The leader of the Liberal Democrats, a “centrist” party that pushed a pro-Remain agenda, lost her seat to the Scottish National Party.
