The Conservative Party far surpassed expectations in Thursday’s parliamentary elections, winning 364 seats and crushing the Labor Party’s hopes of scoring an upset.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson now has plenty of breathing room to pursue his brand of Brexit while Labor tries to figure out what went wrong.

And most importantly, what do these results mean for the British relationship with the United States?
We discuss all of this and more with Ilan Berman, vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council.
