Voters want to ‘get Brexit done’: Johnson’s campaign slogan paid off at the polls
Parliament’s foot-dragging over leaving the EU propelled the Tories past their political rivals during Thursday’s snap election, argued Alastair Donald, associate director of the Academy of Ideas.
The people have stood up to a huge amount of pressure over the past three or four years to either overturn the results or to have a second referendum. They’ve stood up to that pressure and they’ve said ‘we want Brexit to be done’.
He pointed out that even “democratically-minded Remainers” voted for Johnson, amid growing anger at Labour and the Liberal Democrats for trying to stonewall Brexit.
Poor policy choices by the opposition bolstered Johnson’s popularity at the polls, Journalist Neil Clark said.
Labour made a huge error by not supporting Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal in Parliament… and then, the election which came after that would not be about Brexit, because Brexit would have been achieved.
With votes still being counted, the Tories passed the majority threshold on Friday morning.Also on rt.com ‘Powerful new mandate to get Brexit done’: BoJo promises to respect will of British people
