Wakey Wakey – Exit Polls Show Landslide Conservative Boris Johnson Win in U.K. Elections – Open Discussion Thread….

A “landslide”, a complete “wipe-out”, a “massive victory” appears looming for Boris Johnson and the conservative party in the U.K. if exit polls are accurate.

These blowout results guarantee a faster Brexit from the European Union and the leftist labor party in the U.K. has been crushed.  Conservatives look to have picked up 50 seats and Labor has lost 71 seats; the Scottish National Party (SNP) has picked up 20.

The “Remainers” in the U.K. have been decimated, and the voters who want to “Leave” the EU have fueled a massive victory for Boris Johnson.  Liberal heads are blown-out, bigly.

(Via Daily Mail) Boris Johnson hailed his new blue-collar Tory army tonight as it emerged he is on track to secure a staggering landslide in the election battle – with Labour’s ‘red wall’ of Brexit-backing strongholds imploding.

A dramatic exit poll shows voters handing the Tories a massive 368 seats, with Labour languishing on 191 – down 71 on 2017 and the worst performance in modern history.

The bombshell numbers would give a huge Commons majority of 86, the biggest since Margaret Thatcher’s triumph in 1987, and are equivalent to a 10-point lead in the popular vote. (more)

This result also has massive ramifications for a U.S-U.K trade deal; and subsequently major leverage for the U.S. (independently) and a U.S. – U.K. alliance in future trade negotiations against the European Union.

    In US exit polls did not reflect the true vote.
    My guess is the true vote will be higher.

    I stand by the following that I said re impeachment in another thread here this morning on today’s U.K. election:

    The bigger the Conservatives win, the more demoralized the Left/Progressives in the Democrat Party will be. An unexpected win by Labor would, of course, further embolden them.

    This is the type of result we need in 2020 against the Dems to repudiate (or refudiate as Sarah Palin would say!) their impeachment of our great president. Remember in 2016, Brexit, pointed the way to a Trump victory later. It was a narrow win and then Trump won a relatively narrow victory (electoral landslide).

    But next year, I want to see a complete landslide and the House flipped to GOP. We must make this happen. We cannot vote third party or get your panties in a wad over purity. Vote GOP to send a message to history that this impeachment was the worse thing any political party ever tried to do and it will the last time any political party ever tries to impeach for political gain! MAGA! BREXIT!

    While President Trump’s America First policy has undoubtedly strengthened us, and to some extent also insulated us against any negative effects of European politics, the Brexiteers are somewhat our ideological cousins inasmuch as they also eschew the globalist tyranny espoused by the EU.

    Congratulations to PM Boris Johnson and the Brexiteers!

            I truly believe each country has the responsibility to act like grownups and govern responsibly. These people need to go back and fix Pakistani, do land reclamation, reforest, productive man,y work.

            And stop breeding like damn rabbits. Polygamy = too many offspring=conflict=impoverishment.

            Also pertinent to rational beings is clan endogamy drifted to High
            risk of inbreeding syndromes.
            A giant social economic and health care price as well
            Parenting requires considering what quality of life of the suffering child and his siblings.

            Did Brits vote in favour of expanding immigration? You guys already have substantial challenge maintaining. Cohesion with your commonwealth economic migrants. Doesn’t seem fair to export Merkels decision to you.

            Has your government (not Theresa May one hopes ) sternly stated specific & timed
            guidelines for prospective citizens? Language fluentcy, public school, monogamy, no wife and child battery, animal cruelty,age of consent?
            Assigned caseloads to support & compliance monitors?

            This inbreeding is already prevalent in some Brit Paki communities, I read in Lance Two carriers, 1 of 3 offspring.
            For example, polygamy often involves cousins, sisters to brothers, cousins. This’d wa developed to to tighten clan cohesion, feeding & such. made sense, I guess

            But Bthey aren’t in the boom docks here. Overpopulation is a big deal.,

            Is your government on top of preventing the reconstruction of semi criminal antisocial male bonding groups back in Pakistan.

            This lawless kidnapping of women is informal assertion of dominance over their host community. In ME, messing w another tribes women is attacking her community
            Their status and honor.

            These are not the random ocvursnce of sex crimes. This is far more intricate.

    Hillary Clinton is back, and so is Chris Steele, this time in the United Kingdom. They are no less than implying that current Conservative (Tory) Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a Russian plant. And it’s no mistake that these allegations are being made just before a U.K. general election on December 12 that will decide the fate of Brexit.

    Three cheers for the British voter!! Just picked up this comment elsewhere, from someone in the UK, regarding the election.

    “The BBC estimates that the Tories will win 368 MPs. Labour is estimated to win 191 votes, and the Scottish National Party (of Nicola Sturgeon and Alexander Salmond fame) is predicted to win 55 seats, its best showing ever. This is looking to be the worst election for the Labour Party in roughly 100 years, an unmitigated disaster that reminds me of the Democrats in 2016 and makes me smile. The Tories are flipping constituencies that have voted Labour since before the Second World War. Wow! The weather has been terrible in Britain today, and yet the British voter has turned out in droves. God bless ém, regardless of party.

    (BTW, I don´t hear anything about impeachment, nor any caterwauling on the tellie There won´t be a vote of No Confidence any time soon.)

    Boris Johnson will now have an unambiguous mandate to make Brexit happen. That´s great news for our British cousins and for the United States. Now, Donald Trump and Boris Johnson can and will negotiate a terrific trade agreement that benefits both Americans and Britons. The EU can pound sand.”

Trump wouldn’t care and also Trump went after Trudeau, not Boris.

    From the exit polls it looks like Boris will have sufficient MPs that he can do virtually anything he wants for the next 5 years.

    An interesting aspect of the vote tonight is Scotland. If the SNP do as well as expected, although it is unlikely, for statistical reasons, to be as large as forecast. It is likely to lead to increased demands for an independent Scotland. This could lead to the breakup of the UK leading to a change in the UK’s importance and hence role in the World
