Solid rejection of Jeremy Corbyn as British vote backs Brexit

Solid rejection of Jeremy Corbyn as British vote backs Brexit, by Greg Sheridan.

Early results and the exit poll look like a thumping victory for Boris Johnson.

It also seems to be an emphatic rejection of Jeremy Corbyn and his far left Labour Party. The early voting trends have been disastrous for Labour, with socially conservative low income northern and midlands England swinging away from Labour.

There also seems to be a swing against Labour in Wales and no recovery for the party at all in Scotland.

If these results hold, Johnson emerges as a giant figure in history.

Make no mistake. This is a big moment for the whole of Western civilisation.

This is the moment, much more even than the 2016 referendum, when Britain really decided to leave the EU.

The bottom line is that no-one can possibly question the legitimacy of Johnson’s Government or the national British decision to leave the EU. Of course, that doesn’t mean they won’t try.

The globalists will claim the election result was an anti-Corbyn vote, rather than pro-Brexit. They will point out that the Remain vote was split across the Labour Party and the LibDems, whereas, because Farage dropped out, the Leave vote was concentrated in the Tories.

Who’d want to be a politician?
