Decade in Review: 2019

December 30 2019

After many months of deadlock, frustration and setbacks, trying to get a Brexit deal accepted by both her own Parliament and the European Union, an exhausted-looking Theresa May resigned in July. Boris Johnson succeeded her as Prime Minister and soon called a General Election, which took place just before Christmas. In what was becoming an increasingly chaotic UK political environment, the Tories won by a convincing margin in England and made significant gains in Wales. In Scotland, however, the SNP scored a landslide victory, winning 48 seats and delivering what First Minister Nicola Sturgeon called a clear message for a second independence referendum. The General Election was a disaster for Labour, which lost ground nationwide.
