Historic Defeat for Tories in UK Polls: How Rishi Sunak Became the ‘fall guy’

Keir Starmer will be Britain’s next prime minister with his centre left Labour Party expected to win a huge majority in a parliamentary election, ending 14 years of often tumultuous Conservative government by trouncing Rishi Sunak’s party.

“Tonight, people here and around the country have spoken and they’re ready for change, to end the politics of performance, a return to politics as public service,” Starmer said after winning his seat in London.

“The change begins right here … You have voted. It is now time for us to deliver.”

Keir Starmer is set to become the next prime minister of Britain, as his centre left Labour Party is projected to secure a substantial majority in the parliamentary elections.

“The Labour Party has won this general election and I have called Sir Keir Starmer to congratulate him on his victory,” Sunak said after winning his parliamentary seat in northern England.

This victory will conclude 14 years of often turbulent Conservative rule. Calling it a “difficult night,” British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Friday conceded defeat in the UK parliamentary elections, saying the opposition Labour Party had won.
