Britain: Double humiliating defeat for the Conservatives


The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party suffered heavy defeats today in two local elections, particularly in a “safe” constituency in the south-west of England that had been a Tory stronghold for over a century.

The Conservatives lost this seat, in Tiverton and Honiton, to the centrist Liberal Democrats and another, this one in Wakefield (northern England) to the main opposition, the Labor Party.

In the first case, the Tories lost by a spectacular margin of about 24,000 votes, in the second by a difference of almost 5,000 votes.
