Are The British Elections A Sign Of Things To Come
Today U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has skated to an easy win for his party in yesterday’s British elections. Meanwhile, the liberals of England, led by Corban, have been dealt a historic loss, Corban has announced today he will resign his position in the party but will remain in place until a replacement can be found.
We have seen now what is a historic trend in Europe, starting four years ago conservatives started to unseat their liberal counterparts, the ones that didn’t get replaced saw their support dwindle to the point they had lost much of their mandate, the same thing happened in the U.S.
Like the U.S. we saw the bounce back by the liberals, just as we saw in the 2018 elections, the Left announced this was a sign they were back, but now we see their polls slipping as people are rapidly tiring of their intent to impeach with no crime shown.
Whatever the final number will be in the British elections, it will mark a significant victory for the Tories, and a historic drubbing for the Labour Party of a kind they haven’t seen since the 1930s.
The night saw shock after shock as traditional Labour areas such as Burnley, Redcar, Stoke-on-Trent, and Wrexham — with some seats that have been held by the party for decades — turn to the Conservatives. Many of those seats, often in working-class areas, had voted in favor of Britain’s departure from the European Union in 2016 and had soured at the Labour Party’s anti-Brexit stance.
Johnson had called an early election to break the deadlock over Brexit, asking the British public to give him a majority so he could get his withdrawal agreement — negotiated with the E.U. — through the chamber, where it previously had been rejected. His message to voters tired of the drama since the 2016 referendum was simple: “Get Brexit done.“
As the results came in, Johnson declared that his party had been given “a powerful new mandate.”
“I’d like to thank the people of this country for voting in a December election that we didn’t want to call, but that I think has turned out to be an historic election that gives us now…a chance to respect the democratic will of the British people, to change this country for the better and to unleash the potential of the entire people of this country and this is what we will now do,” he said.

What is of note, AOC and other liberals threw their support behind the deeply antisemitic Corban, not that one should be surprised to see such actions from members of the squad, they have shown this tendency amount themselves.
The Left here, like in Europe, reveled over their win in 2018, now we shall see the people’s reaction to the party when they took power. Nothing got done, all we have heard were moves by the Left to unseat an elected president and undo the will of the people.
In the British elections, the people reacted by throwing the party out of power, giving the Conservatives a far greater majority, the Left now reeling is trying to figure out where to go from here.
