  • It's a huge moment.

  • It's a huge moment for Boris Johnson, of course, who a year ago was written off by many people.

  • It's an enormous moment for the Conservative party, having had a torrid and turbulent time when they saw the majority being whittled away.

  • And then when he threw some people out of the party, they went backwards.

  • But they had a couple of years of agony, of having to rely on the Democratic Unionist Party from Northern Ireland and then before that you know David Cameron with a very, very rocky time.

  • I mean, it seemed like a big victory for him at the time of getting a majority of 15.

  • But this means, but more than anything else, in times of the historical significance for it, unless something very strange happens, we will be leaving the European Union next month.

  • On that answer is the biggest question of British politics for the last 3.5 years.

  • Is was what happened in 2016 actually going toe happen or not?

  • Because that is the question that is paralysed Parliament.

  • The previous parliament was not able to agree on how to leave, and therefore we did not agree they didn't agree on whether we would leave.

  • The public has answered that question tonight, and that is what this prime minister will do.

  • And, of course, the size of his majority beyond this will dictate how much freedom and how radical he may or may not be to do other things and to pursue other projects.

  • Well, the results are still coming in.

  • Why don't we have a look at the Palace of Westminster, which is where all the activity will start within a few days.

  • Time on.

  • We are projecting the result as it's happening on the Palace of Westminster on the banks of the River Thames on there we have it so far.
