In December 2019 Britain elected its Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. He joined the ranks of statesmen and women going back to the formation of Great Britain in 1707. The General Election of 2019 was dubbed “the Brexit Election”. The Conservatives stood for “Getting Brexit Done”, along with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, while the Greens, the Liberal Democrats and the Labour Party championed a second referendum.
The Conservatives won a landslide victory, receiving 43% of the vote, with the “Remain” vote getting 53% but spread between several parties. The new Government had a majority of 80 seats, meaning that Boris Johnson had the largest majority since the days of Margaret Thatcher. Meanwhile, the Labour party had its worst election result since 1935.
