Johnson calls for unity in the areas that Labor extracted from the Labor Party

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tried on Saturday to ease the division in the country after he toured areas that were taken from the Labor Party in Thursday's legislative elections, and gave him a large majority in Parliament.

The Conservatives won 365 out of 650 seats thanks to their advance in constituencies that had been a decades-old bastion for Labor but pro-Brexit like Sedgefield, the stronghold of former Labor Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Johnson visited on Saturday.

"I imagine the situation of the voters who carried their pen and were hesitant before they put the sign near the conservative box," Johnson said in a speech at a local cricket club in front of a crowd of supporters and some newly elected representatives.

"I know that some people may have changed their habit of voting that they used to for generations and voted for us," he said, promising voters "to be as trustworthy" as they gave him.

According to Johnson, his victory was the result of "an irrefutable or unavoidable decision" for the British to achieve "Ultimate Brexit" on January 31, which is his most prominent campaign promise.

Scottish Nationalists
More than three years after the divisions that followed the 2016 referendum in which the British voted 52% in favor of leaving the European Union, Johnson has been waving since the results were announced with a reunification paper.

"I invite everyone to turn the page and start smiling," he said in a brief speech on Friday in front of the British government headquarters, stressing his desire to focus from now on on priorities such as health, security, education and infrastructure.

Boris Johnson's call for unity would not be facilitated by the Scottish nationalists who achieved a very good result (48 seats) - 13 additional seats compared to 2017 - their leader Nicolas Sturgen considered it "a mandate" for a new referendum on the future of Scotland opposing Brexit after the referendum that it lost in 2014 .

The workers' opposition suffered a major defeat, bringing its number of seats to 203 compared to 262 previously, in its worst result since 1935, which led its leader Jeremy Corbin to announce that he will not lead the party in the upcoming elections.
