UK Voters Demand to ‘Get Brexit Done’

The message is clear: The government’s job is to enact the will of the people, not serve the elites.

There’s big news from across the pond as the British people have once again voiced their approval for Brexit (the United Kingdom exiting the European Union). The UK held national parliamentary elections yesterday to determine whether the conservative Tory Party led by current Prime Minister Boris Johnson would stay in power, or if the liberal Labour Party led by socialist Jeremy Corbyn would take control. Johnson, who took over as PM earlier this year after Theresa May’s repeated failure for over two years to deliver a Brexit deal, campaigned heavily to “get Brexit done,” and Britons responded by giving him a historic victory.

“This election means that getting Brexit done is now the irrefutable, irresistible, unarguable decision of the British people,” Johnson said. President Donald Trump voiced his enthusiasm over the election results, stating, “Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT! This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!”

But this election result arguably has far more positive and significant implications for America’s relationship with Great Britain than a big trade deal. Should Corbyn have won, his anti-American and pro-Iranian positions would have presented a major problem for the two nations’ close intelligence-sharing relationship. As the Washington Examiner notes, “On both sides of the Atlantic, top intelligence officials such as the CIA’s Gina Haspel and her friend and counterpart, Alex Younger, would have to mitigate this suspension of sharing intelligence on trust that Corbyn would not receive specifics on sources and methods.”

The big picture of this UK election is very much the same one the American people gave Washington in electing Trump. The government is supposed to represent the interests and will of the people, not be used as a mechanism for elitists to force their agenda and control onto the people. American Democrats have spent three years trying to undo the 2016 election. Britain’s elites have done the same thing ever since the June 2016 Brexit vote. Likewise, as that vote served as a precursor to Trump’s election victory five months later, this latest UK election may signal a big win coming for Trump in 2020 as the people reject the elites.
