That's about it (Commons=Representatives, Lords=Senate).
Personally, I don't think he's going to go for "no deal". That was being used as a threat to the EU to force them into compromising. Now that he'a achieved an agreement, it would be silly to waste it.

Following on from my previous answer; at 2.30 a.m. our time, the figures are now Conservatives 44, Labour 43. That is remarkably early for the Conservatives to take the lead. On the usual precedents, that should mean that they will now draw ahead slowly and confirm at least "largest party" status.

Nigel turned out to be a force to be reckoned with it appears if I'm understanding correctly on how that played out?

No Remainers here yet. I imagine they're still watching the telly hoping for a miracle in the polls.

Farage stood candidates down to help the conservatives beat labour.
It's been a stunning success.

The sweetest thing is that the behaviour of the left in this country is being punished.

Not even close

“Landslide” will be redefined in the Trump re-election


I think it will be more like a tsunami from an un-drained swamp.

50 billion flies can't be wrong! Eat $#it

Besides, exit polls aren't the actual vote.

Speaking after his re-election as MP for Islington North, he said he would remain in post while the party "reflected" on the result but would not lead the party into another general election. "I will not lead the party in any future general election campaign," he said. "I will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward. "I will lead the party during that period to ensure that the discussion takes place as we move on into the future."
so yeah seems like ol Borris is not just beating them but getting them to quit

edit per reuters the conservatives just picked up tony blairs old seat .......

It must have been another huge lie from our U.S. media 2 weeks ago, when they proclaimed, "Boris Johnson is intentionally keeping his distance from President Trump while they're at the NATO summit."

No punishment is too harsh for the Anti-Trump/Anti-America media and pundits.

Scottish National Party candidate Amy Callaghan defeated Swinson by a slim majority of just 149 votes. Swinson had fone into the general election aiming to win dozens of seats and initially claimed that she could be prime minister. However, an exit poll conducted for major broadcasters and published on Thursday evening predicted that the Lib Dems would win 13 seats at the general election. This is one more seat than they won at the last election in 2017. However, in one of the night's most stunning results, Swinson lost her East Dunbartonshire seat, meaning the pro-European Union party will be forced to find a new leader.
well keeping with general updates i been doing this happened as well seems to be a bad night for remainers all over the UK

www.bbc.com... older link and now we can add borris to it and the right has slowly but surely taken over a good deal of Europe , throw in tropical trump and the other right leaning leaders in south America they seem to be slowly retaking power from the various liberal/socialist parties around the globe even japan has shifted right and to a less pacifist stance www.scmp.com...

even austrialia is going farther right then expected www.bloomberg.com...

If you enjoyed the right-wing populist surge that led to President Donald Trump and Brexit, then have we got good news for you: It’s still going strong. It even got a new electoral shocker to its credit this weekend, when conservative Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison won re-election after basically zero polls suggested that was a possibility. David Fickling and Dan Moss note the result echoes those aforementioned 2016 surprises in the U.S. and U.K., in that wealthy, liberal cities are growing more alienated from economically struggling rural areas. Australia’s outcome is one sign of many that right-wing populism is still ascendant around the world, writes Tyler Cowen. In upcoming European Parliament elections, for example, Euroskeptics are poised to win more than a third of the seats, notes Romesh Ratnesar. They’re thriving on turbulence and fraying party ties, Romesh writes, trends that aren’t going away.
so we keep seeing shifts right on at least 3 continents and parts of asia and Boris pulling off his majority seems to show that's not going to stop any time soon

LONDON (Reuters) - After all the arguments and all the mass marches, opponents of Brexit faced a stark truth on Friday after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s likely election landslide: there would be no second referendum; divorce from Europe was inevitable. With the Conservatives set to win their largest majority since 1987, Johnson will be able to push his divorce deal through parliament, allowing Britain to leave the EU next month.

It would be the country’s most significant geopolitical move since World War Two.

Some supporters of another Brexit vote blamed themselves for the crushing defeat. The main organization campaigning for a second referendum imploded, while the opposition Labour leader was ambivalent, pledging to stay neutral in another vote.

“I am distraught, and like everyone else in the remain community wish we had more competent representation,” said Mike Galsworthy, an anti-Brexit campaigner, who was sipping a whisky before going to bed after seeing the exit polls come in.
well sipping whisky is better then screaming at the sky so ill give them that much at least seems the UK will now for sure leave the EU and how the EU responds and or endures is yet to be seen

www.politico.eu... Eu now ready for trade talks so they seem to see the writing on the wall the question will now be how many concessions the UK gets from the EU and how well it will turn out for the UK

EU ‘ready’ for trade talks after UK election, says Charles Michel The European Council president will preside over a discussion among leaders Friday on Brexit trade talks. By Andrew Gray and Hans von der Burchard 12/13/19, 4:58 AM CET Updated 12/13/19, 5:27 AM CET The EU is "ready for the next steps" on Brexit following the U.K. general election result, said European Council President Charles Michel. Speaking at an EU leaders' summit in Brussels shortly after an exit poll had suggested a strong majority for Boris Johnson's Conservative party, the former Belgian prime minister stressed the "unity" of the EU27 in the next phase of talks. “We are ready for the next steps. We will see if it is possible for the British parliament to accept the Withdrawal Agreement, and to take a decision,” Michel told reporters. “And if it is the case, we are ready for the next steps. We have a way of working in order to guarantee the unity of the European countries, to guarantee the transparency and to try to keep a close cooperation with the United Kingdom.” Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the EU would wait for the official result and then want to hear from the U.K. prime minister “just to be reassured” about the way ahead. “We are all set for whatever case is happening. We have the structures internally. We are ready to negotiate whatever is necessary,” she said. EU27 leaders will hold a meeting tomorrow at the end of the summit to discuss Brexit. “It will be important tomorrow to get the mandate for the further steps from the Council so this will be the core of our debate tomorrow,” von der Leyen said.
i dobut this will be the end of the EU even remotely but this will be an interesting hurdle they have to deal with in attempts to normalize trade as well as a host of other issues

Its official now. The Consrvatives have got over 326 seats now with lots of seats still to declare, meaning that they have a majority. Boris remains as prime minister.

Its a dark and desperate night for the UK.

We had truly appalling choices....the leaders of ALL the major party's are thoroughly unfit for high office.

The thing is, this has been more of an anti-Corbyn vote than anything else.
Its a call for The Labour Party to return to its core values and represent their traditional core support.

I can not emphasise just how unfit for office any of the options were.

Personally I'm a passionate Brexit supporter.....Boris Johnson is going to force an appalling Brexit deal on us and he represents everything I hate about this country.....yet unbelievable he was the least damaging choice.

We're well and truly #ed and I suspect that in a few years time many people might look back on this night with deep regret.



This ... 5 more years of these vile bastards! i'll be close to 40 ... I hope it is worth it in the end! People/media going on like half the nation suddenly turned right wing in beliefs and values. Get Brexit done and give us a real opposition and you will see how fast that swings back, and I'd bet my life on it! Most people I know and speak to still hate the tories, they just felt they had no other choice.

All I'm hearing is that it "is very close." So when do final numbers come out? I mean, it's already Friday in the UK, right?


Very close like the greatest margin of victor since the 1980s with Thatcher?

We keep seeing this everywhere... The people have spoken over and over and here we are after a massive campaign to get rid of that evil Boris. A month ago it was said his numbers were worst than Trump's was before Trump was elected.

Get over it!!! The Brits want out, and again and again they keep saying it...

You seem upset

The vast majority of people worldwide are right-leaning

You poor thing

Trump will win by the biggest margin in modern history

You know that to be true

But it’s ok, I’m sure the Labour Party will win in New Zealand next year,

BWAAAAAAAH HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAA

www.msn.com... LOL reeee louder and hey if you could be ever so kind get us some videos of you screaming at the sky so we can relive 2016 all over again polls have closed they crushed labor

LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party won a commanding majority in the British Parliament, a striking victory that redraws the lines in British politics and paves the way for the country’s exit from the European Union early next year. The Conservatives were projected to win 363 seats in the House of Commons, versus 203 for the Labour Party, according to the BBC, with almost all of Parliament’s seats decided. That would give the Conservatives a 74-seat majority, their largest since that amassed by Margaret Thatcher in 1987. As the results flowed in from individual districts, they pointed to a radical reconfiguration of Britain’s political map. The Conservative Party was projected to win dozens of Labour seats in the industrial north and Midlands, shattering the so-called red wall that has undergirded the Labour Party for generations.
this is almsot exactly like when trump took the rust belt and other democratic strong holds ,and just as an aside your independent parties are "wild as all hell" i mean elmo and some guy with a bucket on his head standing by Boris whats up with that? we dont let vermin supreme stand along side trump or any president when they loose . were you not one saying Boris did not have the slightest chance and brexit was dead well seems to be another leftist prediciton based on over confidence that ended up with a stunning defeat end totals are 357 conservative ,203 labor ,and 80 other. race is done brexit is happening and now the eu is already coming to try to get a deal
