  • Patrick Dunleavy

Description

Britain’s third general election in five years produced a landslide, nation-shaping Brexit victory for Prime Minister Boris Johnson — and a crushing rebuke for the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn and his self-described radical social agenda.

Labour had its worst showing since World War II — a potential warning light about the political viability of progressive left-wing platforms here and maybe in the United States.
