The exit poll for the British election has just been released. Here’s the projection:

  • Conservatives: 368
  • Labour: 191
  • SNP: 55
  • Lib Dems: 13
  • Other: 26

If the exit poll is accurate, the Conservatives won 56 percent of the seats in Parliament, a considerable increase over their current position. This means Boris Johnson will remain prime minister and Brexit will go forward.
