Rhâââ lovely !

La victoire écrasante de Johnson est une joie sans mélange, d'autant plus avec des succès importants dans l'Angleterre ex-industrielle ex-Labour.

Après Trump et Salvini, c'est le signal que l'authentique démocratie et la liberté collective, celles qui s'affranchissent du gouvernement des juges, des médias et des minorités, bref de l'oligarchie bobo, bien-pensante, politiquement correcte, anti-nationale, restent possibles.

La France, avec son choix désastreux de la subordination à l’Allemagne (trahison caractérisée de nos dirigeants), va beaucoup souffrir de ce renouveau anglais (plus que britannique) mais quel espoir pour le peuple français.

J’espère que Johnson sera à la hauteur et commencera par punir les traîtres, les parlementaires frequent travellers Londres-Bruxelles ces trois dernières années. J'ajoute une pensée émue pour Nigel Farage, qui a été un grand patriote comme il n'y en a plus dans les politiciens français.

Une fois de plus (vieille habitude dans notre histoire), les Français amoureux de liberté vont porter leurs vœux de l'autre côté de la Manche (mais nous avions déjà commencé : je n'ai cessé de prier pour cette victoire !). Je pense à René Char dans son maquis de Haute-Provence (circonstances individuelles plus dramatiques mais la France n'est pas moins en danger aujourd'hui) : « C'est contre nous chasse perpétuelle. Pluie : nostalgie Londres ».

It was an extraordinary night. Boris Johnson has won a landslide election victory, smashing through Labour's "red wall" by winning over millions of working-class voters. Political Editor Gordon Rayner reports that a predicted majority of about 80 seats would be the Conservatives' best result since 1987 - and means the Prime Minister can forge ahead with his plan to get Britain out of the EU by Jan 31. At just after 5am, the Tories crossed the 326-seat threshold for a majority. By 6am, they had won 358 seats. Follow our live results tracker, which allows you to search by constituency. As Sterling enjoyed its biggest surge in a decade, Mr Johnson said his government "has been given a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done, to unite this country and take it forward". These maps and charts show how the majority was won and this round-up has the night's biggest winners and losers. What happens next? Read our guide. And Matt - of course - stole the night, comedy-wise, with his cartoon.  

When former mining constituency Blyth Valley turned blue at shortly before 11.30pm, it was clear an extraordinary realignment of politics was taking place. The earthquake moment was just the start of a wave of unexpected Tory victories in swathes of the Midlands and the North - some traditional Labour seats voting Conservative for the very first time. Camilla Tominey has a full analysis of how it set in motion a Churchillian triumph not seen since the days of Margaret Thatcher.

Corbyn urged to quit as party faces up to huge losses

Jeremy Corbyn is facing mounting calls to step aside immediately after announcing he will not lead his party into another election campaign. The Labour leader called for a "process of reflection" following the crushing defeat, which is expected to be the worst since Michael Foot led the party to disaster in 1983. But in a move that is likely to provoke fury among Labour MPs, Mr Corbyn indicated that he could cling on during that period until the party was ready to "move on". Deputy Political Editor Anna Mikhailova explains how it all fell apart for Mr Corbyn. And Gareth Davies examines the likely options for next leader.

Defeat for Lib Dem leader caps disastrous campaign

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson suffered a humiliating "Portillo moment" after losing her seat to the SNP by just 149 votes. One of the biggest shock results of the night came only weeks after the 39-year-old declared she could be Britain's next Prime Minister and win "hundreds of seats". Ms Swinson blamed a “wave of nationalism” after defeat in her East Dunbartonshire seat. Bill Gardner reports on the humbling of the Lib Dem's first female leader who wanted to head up a "Remain Alliance".
