Boris heads north after election win
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson headed to northern England on Saturday to reconvene with newly elected Conservative Party members of parliament. He chose to meet in the working class heartland as a symbolic thanks to the people who turned their back on the opposition Labour Party in the election earlier this week.
Johnson ran on a platform to get Brexit done and urged Britain in his victory speech to end the acrimony festered over the divisive issue and “let the healing begin”.
Johnson’s conservatives won 365 seats, its best performance since Thatcher’s last victory in 1987.
