Britain Election BBC News Navigation VideoThe UK election explained 12/13/ · Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrives with his dog Dilyn at a polling station, at the Methodist Central Hall, to vote in the general election in London, England, Dec. 12, 12/12/ · LONDON — Britain’s Conservative Party and Prime Minister Boris Johnson secured a majority in Parliament on Friday, winning an election that Author: Kim Hjelmgaard. 12/11/ · Voters in the United Kingdom will shuffle through the doors of their old schools, churches and village halls on December 12, casting their votes in the country's third general election in less.
He added: "Above all I want to thank the people of this country for turning out to vote in a December election that we didn't want to call but which I think has turned out to be a historic election that gives us now, in this new government, the 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.
Mr Johnson became prime minister in July without a general election, after the Conservative Party elected him as leader to replace Theresa May.
Speaking at his election count in Islington North, where he was re-elected with a reduced majority, Mr Corbyn said Labour had put forward a "manifesto of hope" but "Brexit has so polarised debate it has overridden so much of normal political debate".
There were some astonishing results, with a number of historic Labour heartlands falling to the Conservatives. Jeremy Corbyn has made it clear he will go before the next election - but he wants to stay for a period of reflection.
Many in his party want him to go immediately. A Tory majority at Westminster means one constitutional quarrel - Brexit - might be over, but another - on Scottish independence - will be back with a vengeance.
She said Scotland had sent a "very clear message" that it did not want a Boris Johnson Conservative government and the prime minister did not have a mandate to take Scotland out of the EU.

The Conservative Party, which won a majority at the general election, included pledges in its manifesto to remove the fifteen-year limit on voting for British citizens living abroad, and to introduce a voter identification requirement  in Great Britain.
In March , Cabinet Office minister Chloe Smith confirmed that the Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies would commence based on retaining seats.
The postponed Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies proposed reducing the number of constituencies from to In April , each of the four parliamentary Boundary Commissions of the United Kingdom recommenced their review process.
Boundary changes cannot be implemented until they are approved by both Houses of Parliament. No changes were submitted by the government during the — Parliament.
The Fixed-term Parliaments Act FTPA introduced fixed-term parliaments to the United Kingdom, with elections scheduled on the first Thursday in May of the fifth year after the previous general election, unless the previous general election took place between 1 January and the first Thursday in May, in which case the election takes place on the first Thursday in May of the fourth year after the previous general election.
Removing the power of the monarch, on advice of the prime minister, to dissolve parliament before its five-year maximum length,  the act permits early dissolution if the House of Commons votes by a two-thirds supermajority.
Expectations in were that Theresa May would expand her parliamentary majority. Reality is that she lost the one she had, coming up short of the mark.
There were so many changes to the political affiliations of MPs over the course of this two-year parliament, we would need a separate article to detail them all.
Dozens of MPs elected in now have new caucus affiliations, or none at all as the case may be. On the day the Commons voted for a snap election, Soames was one of those allowed to rejoin the Tories.
This is a small cross-section of what happened in this wild prior House of Commons. At the end of that parliament, the Conservatives were the largest party with seats, deep in minority government territory.
Labour held seats. One seat was vacant. In technical terms, a party needs seats to form a majority government. However, in practice, this is not the case.
The Speaker is typically a non-voting member, reducing voting seats to In the current House of Commons, there are also seven Sinn Fein members.
Party procedure involves them not taking their seats in Westminster, so assuming their numbers hold in , there are voting MPs.
This means a theoretical majority can be formed with seats, not that anybody did in this parliament. The Conservative Party of Boris Johnson won a firm House of Commons majority of 80 on a swing of about four and a half percent from Labour.
Tories held most of their 60 most vulnerable seats, losing just a handful to the SNP, with Labour and the Lib Dems each taking one. As for Labour, their night was disastrous.
Almost 80 percent of their 60 most vulnerable seats were lost, the vast majority to the Tories. Our final prediction has a Conservative majority of 36, with the Tories finishing seats ahead of Labour.
The most major changes were increasing the Labour seats and decreasing the Lib Dems, who despite a good pre-election period never got off the runway.
The campaign became a more traditional race between Labour and the Tories, and the Lib Dems have not been able to get the traction they need to run up bigger numbers and play a bigger spoiler.
Nevertheless, it is not going to get much better for Labour. Their best-case scenario prediction is to be a large opposition party, while the Tory best-case scenario is a landslide win.
In Scotland, the SNP will be the largest party again, but there is a wide range of uncertainty for them. There are a number of Scottish seats on the edge for the SNP, Labour, Tories, and Lib Dems, which means Scotland could provide some of the more surprising results of the night.
If the Conservatives are doing better than their expected seven seats in Scotland high-end is 15 , chances are they are looking at a substantial majority.
After a few weeks of allowing the campaign to unfold, we have locked in our first prediction for the British election. Exit polls in the past few British elections have been accurate.
Conservatives made gains in traditional Labour strongholds in northern England. Posts on social media indicated long lines at some voting stations, which is unusual in Britain.
Johnson's Conservative Party has done more than any other group to stretch the limits of truth and transparency, according to a study by First Draft, a media watchdog.Labour Party. It was attended by 29 heads of state and heads of governmentincluding Donald Trump. Leeds Beckett UniversityLeeds .
