The Tories thundered to victory in yesterday’s UK elections, eliminating the fears of a hung Parliament with their biggest majority since Margaret Thatcher’s last election. Johnson celebrated the win in fine humor (humour?) after confirming his own seat in his constituency, offering some amused thanks to “Lord Buckethead” and “Elmo” on the dais as well. The Conservatives have “a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done,” Johnson exuberantly declared.
But a Brexit on what terms? Will it be the deal Johnson cut with the EU just before the election — or will it be a no-deal Brexit?
