Election 2019 Outcome
What does the result mean for immigration policy and Brexit in 2020?
The 2019 General Election produced a decisive outcome, resulting in a conservative party majority of 80 seats in the House of Commons. This means that the long period of political uncertainty is over and the future trajectory of Brexit, at least until the end of 2020, is now clear.
The fact that the Conservative Party won a significant majority on the back of a manifesto commitment to “Get Brexit Done” means that there is a further democratic mandate to leave the European Union and there is no realistic prospect of a second referendum in 2020.
