Conservative Party Out Of Power After 14 Years As Sunak Congratulates Keir Starmer


Britain’s Labour Party won a landslide election victory last night, sweeping the Conservative Party out of power after 14 years.

NYT reports that, the Labour Party had won 388 of the 650 votes in the British House of Commons, versus 97 for the Conservatives, in the worst defeat in the nearly 200-year history of the party. 

Keir Starmer, a former human rights lawyer, will be Britain’s next prime minister.

Earlier this morning, the outgoing prime minister, Rishi Sunak, conceded defeat, and he said that he had called Starmer to congratulate him. “The British people have delivered a sobering verdict tonight,” he said.

While a Labour victory had long been predicted, the magnitude of the Tory defeat will reverberate through Britain for months, if not years.
