UK's Johnson Jubilant: 'We Broke the Gridlock, We Ended the Deadlock, We Smashed the Roadblock'


Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has won an overwhelming victory in the British elections, and that means Britain will soon be leaving the European Union.

Prime Minister Johnson's parliamentary win could easily be described as a blowout. The UK paper "The Sun" reports the party picked up at least 47 seats which means the Conservatives will control at least 363 seats while the main opposition Labour Party has been reduced to 203.

It's the biggest Conservative win since Margaret Thatcher led the party in the 1980s.

Their victory came after Prime Minister Johnson campaigned relentlessly to make 'Brexit' finally happen after years of political fighting before and after the British people voted in 2016 to pull out of the EU.

“We did it - we pulled it off, didn't we?'' a jubilant Johnson told supporters. "We broke the gridlock, we ended the deadlock, we smashed the roadblock!"

"This election means that getting Brexit done is now the irrefutable, irresistible, unarguable decision of the British people," Johnson said.

The liberal Labour Party lost about 59 seats amid widespread revelations of anti-Semitism in the party, leading to calls for leader Jeremy Corbyn's resignation.

Meanwhile, Johnson says his country will be leaving the EU by the end of January, which means the United Kingdom will be taking back control of its law, borders, money, and immigration system.
