Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears to have won a sweeping, decisive and powerful majority of parliamentary seats in Thursday’s election, according to the respected national exit poll released minutes after the voting ended.
Conservative Party is expected to win 368 spots in a 650-seat Parliament, according to the exit poll. The party needs 322 seats to control the House of Commons — and then full speed ahead with Brexit.
The article goes on to state the following:
If the poll results hold when actual ballots are tallied overnight, Johnson and his Conservative Party will have achieved a smashing success, the largest win for the Tories since the days of Margaret Thatcher — while the opposition Labour Party and its hard-left leader Jeremy Corbyn will have suffered their worst defeat in four decades.
In a Twitter post, one of Hillary Clinton’s former aides reacted to the news, blaming racism and xenophobia for the apparent Conservative Party victory.
Daou was Clinton’s internet director during her 2008 presidential campaign and also worked on John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Daou has recently been an advocate of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and has spoken against the Democratic establishment,” the Examiner reported. “‘I was a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter, and now I’ve moved to a position where I think that the Democratic Party establishment needs to change,’ Daou recently told Politico. ‘Bernie Sanders is the sole candidate advocating for systemic change — democratic socialism, really questioning the capitalist system, questioning the entire establishment.’”
Never underestimate the impact of unadulterated racism and xenophobia in the election of rightwing white males around the world.
