LONDON – BORIS JOHNSON and the Conservative party have won the largest majority in the House of Common since Margaret Thatcher won a third term in 1987.

And Jeremy Corbyn said he would not fight another elections a Labour leader as the opposition suffered heavy defeats in its traditional heartlands in the Midlands and north-eastern England and lost six seats in Wales.

Johnson has promised to deliver Brexit and repay the trust of voters.

The prime minister is to meet the Queen to ask to form a new government as he has a Commons majority of 78, with one constituency (the Cornish seat of St Ives) still to declare.

The results of the election thus far reveal the Conservatives have 364 MPs, Labour 203, the SNP 48, Liberal Democrats 11 and the DUP eight.

Sinn Fein has seven MPs, Plaid Cymru four and the SDLP has two. The Green Party and Alliance Party each have one.

The Brexit Party, which triumphed in the summer’s European Parliament elections, failed to win any Westminster seats.
