The national exit poll released moments ago from the United Kingdom shows Boris Johnson's Conservative Party is predicted to gain 50 seats, for a total of 368 members of parliament. That would be a huge win.

An effective majority in the new parliament (due to non-voting Sinn Fein members of parliament) is likely to be 322 seats. If the exit poll results are anywhere near accurate, Johnson is heading back into government with a commanding mandate in the House of Commons.

Brexit will likely happen by the end of January or shortly thereafter. But more than that, a majority of this size would give Johnson significant latitude to negotiate a long-term post-Brexit trading and political relationship with the European Union. In short, it would make the Conservative Party leader a very powerful prime minister.

For Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, if the exit polls are true, it would be a disaster.

The far-left leader would appear to have alienated vast numbers of otherwise loyal Labour voters — in part over the nature of his distinctly old-school socialism, but also because of his ambivalence on Brexit. It would seem unlikely that his leadership could continue.

Of course, although these exit polls are generally quite accurate, they are only exit polls. We should have a very good idea of the final outcome by 11 p.m. EST on Thursday.

“Tory scum off our streets, Nazi scum off our streets!” shouted left-wing protesters in central London.

Around a thousand demonstrators, many masked and holding antifa symbols, poured onto the streets of the British capital to protest the U.K.’s election results. The Conservatives won in a landslide election the day before, likely guaranteeing Britain’s withdrawal from the EU at the end of next month.

The British capital descended into chaos as the Met Police struggled to contain protesters connected to antifa, socialist and communist groups. They had shut down the streets in and around Westminster. They demanded a “revolution” and the ousting of the Conservatives.

Protesters disobeyed police orders and shoved officers who attempted to block them from certain routes. At one point, officers brandished batons at the crowd to get them to comply.

The protesters held anti-Boris Johnson signs distributed by the Socialist Workers Party. Others, wearing masks, brandished antifa flags.

The on-going chaotic protest echoes left-wing demonstrations-turned-riots in the U.S. after Donald Trump’s electoral win in November 2016.
