The results of the General Election are in and it is good news for the Conservative party.
After a hard fought battle in the build up to the election, Boris Johnson eventually triumphed over Jeremy Corbyn and a potential hung parliament result as his party has managed to form a majority government.
Was This Result Always On The Cards?
The polls had predicted a strong majority government for the Conservatives, however that percentage decreased as the election date grew closer and closer.
It left many wondering what the outcome of the General Election would be, and more importantly, what would happen with Brexit.
As the results came in it became clear that the initial polls were in fact correct and that Boris Johnson would be elected as Prime Minister with a majority government, as many in the UK chose to back his Brexit plan.
What Does A Conservative Majority Mean For Parliament?
The Conservatives had pushed for a majority government, in order to have enough MP’s to back Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.
The Brexit party had also chosen to back out running in certain areas, in order not to split the public’s vote, and allow their supporters to vote Conservative, and stop a second referendum.
‘Get Brexit Done’ had been the slogan for the Conservative party, and will all these things lining up, the majority government was voted in.
Now that the result has happened, it seems more likely that there will be enough MP’s supporting the Prime Minister to get his Brexit deal, and their policies, across the line.
However, there is always the chance that Conservatives MP’s will continue to disagree over the specifics of Boris Johnson’s deal, and the Prime Minister will be working hard to sway those MP’s to change their stance towards his deal, so he has the backing he needs.
The Future Of Brexit?
If the last two years are anything to go buy, business owners across the country will probably be left thinking:
‘So… What Happens Next?’ regarding Brexit and the impact it may have on businesses…
Well, the answer is both simple and complicated… the future of Brexit has definitely gotten somewhat clearer with these results.
With a majority government it looks very likely that Boris will get his Brexit deal done with large support in the houses of parliament.
He is now no longer relying on the DUP’s vote, who heavily disagreed with the deal’s specifics regarding the Irish Border.
Of course, we should also expect many more twists and turns in this Brexit saga.
There is always the chance that Conservatives MP’s will continue to disagree over the specifics of Boris Johnson’s deal, now that they have more control and sway in Parliament.
The Prime Minister will be working hard to sway any MP’s in this category to change their stance towards his deal, so he has the backing he needs.
He also has stated that there will be a further 2 year negotiation period regarding Brexit specifics with the EU.
We’ll learn more in the coming months… but for now, we’re told once again to sit tight… with Boris, and the Conservatives, now firmly at the wheel.
