LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson campaigned on one theme alone — “Get Brexit done” — and if the results of an exit poll projection are correct, that just may happen.
The U.K. exit poll predicts that Johnson's Conservatives won a substantial victory Thursday night in the country's general election.
'Nervous' PM Johnson promises Brexit and less immigration ahead of election
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was nervous about his narrowing lead in opinion polls ahead of Thursday's election but pledged to deliver a "transformative" Brexit on Jan. 31 that would allow lower immigration. © REUTERS/Peter Nicholls/Pool Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrives on the platform to board a train in London, Britain December 6, 2019. REUTERS/Peter Nicholls/Pool The Dec. 12 election will decide the fate of Brexit and the world's fifth largest economy with a stark choice between Johnson's pro-market Conservatives and the socialist-led opposition Labour Party.
Boris Johnson is on course for an election victory that will allow him to get Brexit done. Now he will have to define what it means . Beyond repeatedly telling voters he wants to get Brexit done, Johnson has been notably reticent during the campaign about what it will actually mean in practice.
That means Mr Johnson should be able to met his promise of leaving the European Union by January 31, setting the stage for further trade talks with Brussels. Once Britain has left the EU, the Tory government plans to introduce an 'Australian-style' points-based system to manage immigration.
But even if Johnson pulls Britain out of the European Union by the Jan. 31 deadline, he will still face the mountainous challenge of negotiating a complex trade deal with the EU by the end of next year — a task that many experts say is not possible.
In many ways, the hard part of the Brexit process still lies ahead, even though Johnson is now expected to win parliamentary approval for the Brexit divorce deal that his government negotiated with the EU in October.
So far Johnson's Brexit plan has not been approved by British lawmakers. He has vowed to put the bill before the new Parliament shortly after its members are sworn in next week, with passage likely in early January unless some unforeseen snags develop.
Boris Johnson recreates 'Love Actually' with 'Brexit, actually' parody ad
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is still pushing constituents to vote in favor of Brexit — but now he's using "Love Actually" to do it.Johnson recreated the iconic scene from the British 2003 romantic comedy "Love Actually," featuring Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley, dubbing his parody published online Monday, "Brexit, actually.
The basics of Brexit , the troubled plan for Britain to quit the European Union. The task then fell to her successor, Boris Johnson . The Conservative Party chose Mr. Johnson , a brash Not only did that not settle the debate, but it also saved for another day the tangled question of what should come next.
It’s that Labour has finally come off the fence as a Remain party. Backing Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party only makes a clear Boris victory LESS likely . Three years ago 17.4million Brits voted Leave. If all, or most, turn out again in two days’ time and vote for Boris he will win and Brexit WILL go ahead.
Johnson has said every Conservative Party candidate who was seeking election had agreed to back his Brexit bill. That means he can win enactment of the bill despite vocal opposition from the smaller parties in Parliament. The Labour Party, the pro-EU Scottish National Party and the pro-EU Liberal Democrats would not have the numbers to derail the Brexit bill.
Johnson seems well positioned to get Britain out of the EU by the end of January, making good on the results of a 2016 referendum, but little would change immediately, since the agreement includes a transition period for the U.K. to negotiate a new trade arrangement with the EU.
During the transition, Britain would continue to follow EU rules and regulations, and freedom of movement between EU nations and Britain would continue. There would be few if any visible changes.
Trade talks would likely begin shortly after Britain formally leaves the bloc, and both sides would be expected to decide by the end of June if an extension is needed so talks can continue past the deadline at the end of 2020.
Meet 14 of the youngest politicians around the world

For those not following every twist and turn, this guide covers the basics. What is Brexit ? Brexit was originally due to happen on 29 March 2019. That was two years after then Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50 - the formal process to leave - and kicked off negotiations.
A pro-Russia party won the most votes in Latvia's general election on Saturday, but it could still be kept out of a new coalition government. But New Conservatives leader Janis Bordans ruled out any co-operation with Harmony, calling that "a red line". Harmony chairman Nils Ushakovs argued that "no
Evercore analyst Krishna Guha warned that significant Brexit-related risks loom.
"The subsequent phase of negotiations on future trading relations with the EU holds significant risks including of a hard exit at the end of 2020 if Johnson does not pivot to seek an extension of the transition period and an agreement cannot be reached in 12 months," the analyst wrote.
Johnson, however, has repeatedly pledged that Britain will not seek an extension of the transition period, raising the prospect that Britain could “crash out” of the current trading regime without a new one in place.
European leaders suggested this week that the timetable is virtually impossible to meet. Most experts think it would take longer than one year for the two sides to reach a comprehensive trade accord.
