Boris Johnson will be remaining at 10 Downing Street, whilst trying not to remain in the European Union. The United Kingdom have elected the Tories yet again. The election results are just another example of public opinion moving further to the right.
It is absolutely no secret that, the older a person is, the more likely they are to vote. Although many young people voted, this December election showed the "boomer" generation hitting the Labour Party's struggle extremely hard.
Voting in the United Kingdom takes place much like it does in many other democratic countries. Polling stations are set up in churches and other public places. According to BBC, in a general election, the UK's 46 million voters are invited to choose an MP for their area - one of 650 constituencies. Below is an info graphic of how these constituencies are set up.
An English/German Voice
To better get a feeling for how many in the Labour party are feeling right now, here is an opinion piece from Oliver Meisel, a gentleman who can boast both English and German heritage, giving him unique insights into the election. Here is what he had to say, of course, in typical English style, with humour and a lack of fear:
"I sincerely hope that Scotland does the right thing, and holds a new referendum and destroys whatever it is that, apparently, makes Britain "great". It doesn't deserve such a title. It's a joke. Europe does not need England; not one like this, not one that is run by a gang of bully boy Tory government [officials]. This election will surely be remembered as year zero; the absolute end of the British "empire". It's been dead a long, bloody time and now it's time to finally bury the rotting, stinking carcass that it is. Stick it in the channel tunnel and block up the drain for good; as sad as that may seem.
