Boris Johnson is set to win a comfortable working majority after voters backed him to take Britain out of the EU next month.
The exit poll at the conclusion of the country’s third general election in less than five years predicted the Conservatives will win 368 seats.
The survey, conducted on behalf of Sky News, BBC and ITV, predicts Labour will win 191 seats, 71 fewer than in 2017. The SNP are on course to win 55 seats while the Liberal Democrats are projected to secure 13.
Id really like to see IQ statistic of world-wide left and conservative voters.
Here is some data for the US -
Carl (2014) analysed data from the U.S. General Social Survey (GSS), and found that individuals who identify as Republican have slightly higher verbal intelligence than those who identify as Democrat. An important qualification was that the measure of verbal intelligence used was relatively crude, namely a 10-word vocabulary test. This study examines three other measures of cognitive ability from the GSS: a test of probability knowledge, a test of verbal reasoning, and an assessment by the interviewer of how well the respondent understood the survey questions. In all three cases, individuals who identify as Republican score slightly higher than those who identify as Democrat; the unadjusted differences are 1–3 IQ points, 2–4 IQ points and 2–3 IQ points, respectively. Path analyses indicate that the associations between cognitive ability and party identity are largely but not totally accounted for by socio-economic position: individuals with higher cognitive ability tend to have better socio-economic positions, and individuals with better socio-economic positions are more likely to identify as Republican. These results are consistent with Carl's (2014) hypothesis that higher intelligence among classically liberal Republicans compensates for lower intelligence among socially conservative Republicans.
Party ID Average IQ Republican 100.0 (99.1) Democrat 97.3 (98.1) Independent 94.4 (92.5)

Photos: Christian Leaders Pray for Trump at White House
Roughly 50 Christian leaders and worshipers participated in a prayer session at the White House last week as the House Democrats’ impeachment effort continues to move forward.
Christian pastors and faith-based leaders prayed over President Trump in the Oval Office on Friday — an event headed by Paula White-Cain, who serves as special adviser to the Faith and Opportunity Initiative in the White House.
“The Exclusive @Ami_Magazine Poll, What Orthodox Jews really think about President Trump”
I heard something weird: Eyeing Brexit with Johnson on 10, Trump suggested giving US Pharma access to the British healthcare system.
I can only excuse this, even though he has withdrawn that suggestion, knowing that Americans have simply no knowledge of humane healthcare systems. Its the one reason to not want to live in the US. Its system is a true parasite on human weakness. It is not capitalism but pure extortionism. The US is the most pathetic country in the world by far when we look only at how it milks its sick for all they and their family are worth.
Anyway, Boris in his speech today made it clear that the continuation of a humane healthcare system is priority. Perhaps Trump can take Boris as a leading example here and allow the UK to civilize the US in this respect. He did actually make suggestions to this effect at one point. Maybe he just uttered this insanity in order to repay a debt or something as he didn't press it and, as said, withdrew it too.
'Not my prime minister', protesters march in London against Johnson
LONDON (Reuters) - Several hundred noisy protesters marched through central London on Friday to protest against Britain’s election result, chanting “Boris Johnson: Not My Prime Minister” and “Boris, Boris, Boris: Out, Out, Out”.
The protesters, brandishing signs that read “Defy Tory (Conservative) Rule” and “Refugees Welcome”, walked at speed from outside Johnson’s Downing Street residence to Trafalgar Square and on to the theater district, blocking traffic and drawing a heavy police presence.
Johnson’s Conservatives won Thursday’s election by a large margin. On Friday he called for “closure” over the Brexit divisions that have riven the United Kingdom for the past three and a half years.
Of course we must realize such people are merely hired hands of Soros, not actual mongoloids.

Pharma is,, I think, the largest lobbying influence in American politics. It’s not capitalism, it’s oligarchical fascism and of course wants to globalize itself (already has) and treat humans like pigs (already does). I doubt a more socialized system would be any better here, since in that case you would simply hand over authority to the central government planners who would fuck things up even more than they already are. The missing piece is the seemingly invisible option of simply removing massive authority structures entirely and allowing the people themselves in a free market to conduct their own economic transactions as they see fit and are able. You know... that weird little thing called liberty. And make no mistake that healthcare is economics.
On Boris, yes I guess. We will see. The real takeaway is that obviously the people are fed up with the existing order. The fake news media shit and all the rest isn’t working. The narrative is constricting to the “top” of society only where the “elites” live inside their own narrative in an increasingly shrinking bubble. The real world doesn’t care anymore about their ivory tower bs. But I won’t put my faith in a politician, trump or Boris are signs of the times. They can only do so much, and still have flaws, even if we assume they’re actually authentically what they present themselves as.
Politics is a game of multiple sides playing each other for power, meanwhile the earth goes on in the shadows of that. I think it’s naive to think this can be changed. Even looking at the trump fact checks, I notice the glaring absence of student loan debt stats. Also I notice what I’ve already commented on, he is spending like a madman and increasing our debt and deficits massively. Despite his claims when campaigning that this was such a huge and dangerous problem. Obama did the same, claimed it was a problem and then kept doing it. This is simply the force of System at work.
But nonetheless it’s definitely a victory, trump and Boris too, and much preferred to the alternatives.

And now the game is stacked. All they need to do is force enough senators to vote to remove trump. And they tigger civil war. Which has been their goal for some time. And we already know plenty of republican senators, probably most, hate trump. And we also know when push comes to shove they’re going to do what their handlers tell them even in the face of public opinion backlash at the polls. Look at the bailouts in the “housing crisis”. Look at how they pass thousand page, trillion and a half dollar spending packages without even reading them.
