Boris Johnson vows to resolve Brexit by Jan 31, European markets hit record high after Conservative sweep
“This election means that getting Brexit done is now the irrefutable, irresistible unarguable decision of the British people. With this election, I think we put an end to all those miserable threats of a second referendum,” Johnson told supporters.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed on Friday morning to “get Brexit done” by Jan. 31, 2020 with “no ifs, no buts, no maybes,” following his Conservative Party’s landslide victory in the country’s general election. 

A sudden burst in London-listed companies brought European markets to record peaks early Friday, Reuters reported, as investors celebrated the probable end of more than three-and-a-half years of political turmoil in Britain once the United Kingdom settles on a deal to leave the European Union.
“This election means that getting Brexit done is now the irrefutable, irresistible unarguable decision of the British people. With this election, I think we put an end to all those miserable threats of a second referendum,” Johnson told supporters.
“In this election, your voices have been heard and it’s about time too because we politicians have squandered this three years in squabbles about Brexit,” he continued. “I will put an end to all of that nonsense and we will get Brexit done on time by the 31st of January. No ifs, no buts, no maybes. Leaving the European Union as one United Kingdom, taking back control of our laws, borders, money, our trade, immigration system, delivering on the democratic mandate of the people.”

The Conservative Party won 43.6 percent of the popular vote compared to the Labour Party’s 32.2 percent following Thursday night’s election. The Tories won by an 11.3 margin, the largest for the Conservatives since 1987. This compares to 2017, when the Labour Party lost the popular vote by only 2.4 percent.

It appears that the U.K. has rejected left wing globalism in a landslide.

They've recognized that having bureaucrats accountable to no-one is not in their best interest.

Now that they will be free of the yoke of socialism, they'll be free to negotiate trade deals in the best interests of the people of Great Britain.  They'll be free to determine their own future as a free people not beholden to the whims of Europeans and what they feel is good for them to the detriment of others.

Not to mention the freedom to control immigration into their own country. Hopefully it's not too late for them to save their culture. Hopefully this starts a domino effect that goes across Europe

No, that is holding off until Trump is reelected.

Sorry, bad joke.
