How Boris Johnson won the ‘Brexit election’

'We pulled it off, didn't we' - Boris Johnson declared this morning as he pledged he would unite the country and 'get Brexit done' by the end of January next year -celebrating the biggest Tory majority since 1987.
For Labour - with Jeremy Corbyn's political project left shredded amid their worst result since the 1930s - the search will now begin not just for a new leader, but a new purpose.

And a night of disappointment for the Lib Dems too - their former leader Jo Swinson one of the electoral casualties.

Quote of the Day

“If no one had an army, armies would not be needed. But the same can be said of most lobbyists, PR specialists, telemarketers, and corporate lawyers. Also, like literal goons, they have a largely negative impact on society. I think almost anyone would concur that, were all telemarketers to disappear, the world would be a better place.”
― David Graeber, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory
