Exit poll suggests Boris Johnson will be next UK prime minister

Exit poll suggests Boris Johnson will be next UK prime minister 1


Brexit seemed to be firmly back on track Thursday after an initial exit poll suggested his Conservative Party was on course to secure a large majority — 86 seats — in the House of Commons.
The exit poll, conducted for the UK's main broadcasters, predicted the Conservatives would win 368 seats, well ahead of Labour's 191. The Scottish National Party is projected to win 55 seats, with the Liberal Democrats securing 13.

  1. On Aug. 19, 2016, Arron Banks had just scored a huge win. From relative obscurity, he had become the largest political donor in British history by pouring millions into Brexit. Now he had something else that bolstered his standing as he sat down with his new Russian friend, Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko: his team’s deepening ties to Trump’s insurgent presidential bid in the US. A major Brexit supporter, Steve Bannon, had just been installed as chief executive of Trump’s campaign. And Banks and his fellow Brexiteers had been invited to attend a fundraiser with Trump in Mississippi.

    Less than a week after the meeting with the Russian envoy, Banks and firebrand Brexit politician Nigel Farage — by then a cult hero among some anti-establishment Trump supporters — were huddling privately with the Republican nominee in Jackson, Miss., where Farage wowed a foot-stomping crowd at a Trump rally.

    Banks’s journey from a lavish meal with a Russian diplomat in London to the raucous heart of Trump country was part of an unusual intercontinental charm offensive by the wealthy British donor and his associates, who dubbed themselves the “Bad Boys of Brexit.” Their efforts to simultaneously cultivate ties to Russian officials and Trump’s campaign captured the interest of investigators in the UK and the US.

    Both inquiries center on questions of Russia’s involvement in seismic political events that have shaken the world order, with the European Union losing a key member and U.S. voters electing a president critical of Washington’s traditional alliances. In Britain, revelations about Banks’s Russian contacts triggered scrutiny of whether the Russians sought to bolster the Brexit effort.

    In the fall of 2015, during UKIP’s annual convention at the Doncaster racecourse several hours north of London, Wigmore, a Farage confidant, met a Russian diplomat named Alexander Udod, who then helped arrange a lunch for the UKIP leaders with the Russian ambassador, Yakovenko. (Udod was one of 23 suspected Russian intelligence officers ejected from Britain after the nerve agent attack against Sergei Skripal, a Russian double agent, and his adult daughter, in Salisbury in south England.)

    Banks and Wigmore said they were interested not only in briefing the Russians on Brexit, but also in seeking possible Russian backers for their various offshore investments, including banana plantations in Belize..

    • @Flavius Stilicho they won’t survive buddy they need England and what’s wrong with caring about your own people. Stop being a fucking cuck

    • @Dan Fuchs ahahah fucking Bullshit mate, they said that when the referendum vote came in, just like the uSA said about Trump, the USA was doomed and their economy would go to hell, bullshit. The British people are better than that and the only reason the EU wants them is because of how good our economy is, wasters like you need to get a life and get over it. Are you German, if so look to what happened when Hitler thought we would falter!

    • @John Clague Did you just…. generalize the current German population’s perception to…. Hitler’s? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law

    • @John Clague I’m from USA and I can’t disagree with. Rock on.

    • @Ryan Tan u missed it dude

  10. As unpopular as Johnson is, Labour’s Corbyn is even more loathed. Hopefully the opposition party goes through some serious restructuring as a result of this defeat.

  11. Well, I sure hope they start blaming the Russians. Again.
