Skip to comments.Tories on course for landslide majority - latest results and news
Posted on 12/12/2019 8:10:32 PM PST by edwinland
Boris Johnson is on course for an historic landslide victory in the 2019 general election after an exit poll predicted an 86-seat Conservative majority
The Tories are predicted to win 368 seats 50 up on 2017 in their best result since 1987.
On a catastrophic night for Labour, Jeremy Corbyns party was predicted to end the day with just 191 seats, down 71 on the last election in their worst result since 1935.
If the prediction proves to be correct, it will mean the Prime Minister can forge ahead with his plan to get Britain out of the European Union by Jan 31, with a vote on his deal possible before Christmas.
It would also mean Mr Corbyn is almost certain to announce his resignation as Labour leader today, with John McDonnell reportedly lined up as a caretaker replacement.
Mr Corbyn has now cemented his place as the least popular and least successful Labour leader in modern history, far outstripping Michael Foots disastrous performance in 1983. Labour was likely to be wiped out in many of its former heartlands as the Tories broke through the red wall in the Midlands and the North.

And the World Turned Upside Down
I wonder why he didn’t have a landslide win the last time.
“Tories on course for landslide majority”
This is good.
Labor is getting slaughtered in long time strong holds. Losing by signficant margins. Labor seats not lost for Decades are falling.
Johnson wasn’t the Leader last time
And what does this mean for Brexit?
Socialism and Islam lost in Britain today.
It’s a good day.
May was prime minister last time.
"This is good."
Good sign that the Left got a shellacking in a major western country. Good sign for 2020 here in the USA.
Isn’t that the song they played when we defeated them in 1776?
Wait, are the Tories on our side now?
Corbyn is out, as party leader, but as I learned here he won his own election. Still, the repudiation of this contemptible man and his disgusting ideas is an EXCELLENT result.
LOL!!! “Boris, what is best in life?” :-)
Excellent result for the UK - corbyn a vile anti-semitie and marxist (loved by airhead AOC, who deserves criticism for her endorsement)
I think Brexit will be delayed to next summer, plus national referendums will be discussed for Scotland possibly Northern Ireland.
Boris, what is best in life? :-)
To hear the lamentation of CNN, the media, BBC.
“Labor seats not lost for Decades are falling.”
Yes! And some, even, that have been labor since their creation! And the high turnout was already covered, so they can’t turn around and blame “voter apathy”.
This is really stunningly good. All around, and the Lib Dem Dame is out too. And she’s really out, the voters gave her the gate.
Labour just lost a seat they have held since 1919
Eventually, London Mayor Sadiq Khan will be Labour Leader.
To crush your enemies. To see them driven before you. To hear the lamentations of their women. And their soybois.
With 546 0f 650 seats declared it is Tories (CONS) 289, Lab 188, SNP 43, others 26. Lab cannot even form a coalition with all the rest so far!
