A victory lap for democracy after Jeremy Corbyn’s humiliating defeat by Barbara Kay


Boris Johnson's Conservatives racked up a stunning victory in the U.K. elections, with numbers so decisive - 365 of 650 seats - we will hear no more rumblings about a "second referendum" on Brexit. You can love Boris or hate him, or struggle with mixed feelings (as I confess I do), but he now has a mandate to get Brexit done. But I have no mixed feelings about the Labour Party's humiliating loss, at 203 seats their lowest ebb since pre-World War Two. If ever a party leader deserved a definitive smackdown, it was Jeremy Corbyn, and a victory lap is in order for democracy doing what it does best.
