Voting intention in a general election in the United Kingdom 2017-2019

As of December 6, 2019, 43 percent of British adults intend to vote for the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom's general election due to take place on December 12, 2019. This gave Boris Johnson's party a ten point lead over their nearest rivals, the Labour Party.

 No end in sight for the Brexit saga?

  The political volatility that can be seen in the first months of 2019 was undoubtedly linked to the uncertainty over Brexit. After negotiating with the European Union for over a year, the Prime Minister, Theresa May had her Brexit deal rejected three times by the British parliament, resulting in her eventual resignation. As a result, Brexit was delayed beyond March 31, 2019, giving rise to her successor Boris Johnson, as well as a newly created ‘Brexit Party’ led by Nigel Farage.  

 Johnson suspends parliament

  When Johnson became Prime Minister, he immediately expressed his desire to leave the European Union with or without a deal. After the summer recess, one of first acts as Prime Minster was to prorogue parliament, ostensibly for the purpose of getting his legislative agenda in order, although many suspected it was also an attempt to avoid scrutiny of his negotiations with the EU.
