From the New York Times:
Prime Minister Boris Johnson now appears empowered to lead Britain through Brexit in January, its most momentous transition since World War II.
RIGHT NOW The Conservative Party is projected to win an 86-seat majority.
Here’s what you need to know:
Voters appear to have given Conservatives a strong majority.
A catastrophic defeat is projected for the Labour Party.
Official results are expected early on Friday.
There were long lines in London and beyond.
News outlets had to obey restrictions on reporting.
Keep in mind that these are exit polls, however, and that British first past the post elections can be highly sensitive to small perturbations.
The official numbers will be counted shortly. (Britain is not a backward, low tech place like California where vote counting goes on for several weeks as official wait for the slow boat from Shangri-La to arrive with more votes.)
When Boris Johnson gets his Brexit, will he just keep out Polish immigrants and ask in Indian immigrants to make up the difference?
