Landslide Win as Tories Rout Labour
David Cameron the Prime Minister of Britain and his Tory Party recorded a decisive victory over the Labour Party, left the far-fight and far-left parties well behind and defied the polls prior to the election with a huge election triumph he said was the sweetest of all victories.
Aided by the trouncing of the Scottish National Party over Labour in Scotland, the Tories and Cameron left their opponents at both the left and right in tatters.
The Labour Party lost a total of 24 seats according to the earliest returns in Parliament. Ed Miliband the party leader resigned from the position. Nick Clegg the leader of the Liberal Democrats, in which is part of left of center suffered the worst ever defeat, dropping 57 of its seats to finish with just 8. On the right, Nigel Farage the leader of the UK Independence Party, a thorn in the side of Cameron, did not win a seat and he resigned as the leader of the same.
The resounding win left Cameron and the Tories with a slight majority in the House of Commons that has 650 members, meaning he will not need to form any coalition government and now can implement the entire agenda of the party of cutting the government, entitlements as well as taxes.
With 643 of the constituencies counted, Conservatives have 326 seats and Labour has 230.
Cameron went on Friday to Buckingham Palace to tell Queen Elizabeth II he had sufficient support to form his own government. It would be the first time a majority was won by the Conservatives in Parliament since 1992.
Cameron is the first Prime Minister who is a Conservative to win reelection since Margaret Thatcher.
Cameron besides running with a Tory agenda, also promised to counter the increase of Scottish nationalism with additional powers for Wales and Scotland.
For Labour and Liberal Democrats, the losses only became worse as results kept coming in.
On big factor in this election was the performance never before seen by the Scottish National Party, only months after the failed bid by Scotland for independence.
