Conservatives storm to a landslide victory: Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party have stormed to a landslide victory in the 2019 general election. Their haul of 364 seats (with one constituency left to declare), coupled with a catastrophic loss of 59 seats for Labour gives the prime minister the largest Tory majority since 1987. The one blemish on the Conservatives’ night though was in Scotland where a resurgent SNP took 48 of 59 seats, representing an increase of 13 and leading inevitably to renewed and strengthened calls for a second referendum on Scottish independence.
