The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces a massive party rebellion after over 100 Conservative lawmakers voted against his new coronavirus restrictions. 

Johnson, who holds a majority of 74 seats in the parliament of 650, had to depend on the backing of the opposition Labour Party to pass the new pandemic regulations. "The prime minister was forced to rely on the votes of Labour MPs to win Commons approval for the introduction" of the measures, the newspaper Independent reported. 

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday accused the European Union of threatening a food blockade of the country if it failed to agree to the 'divorce' terms imposed by Brussels. "We are now hearing that, unless we agree to the EU's terms, the EU will use an extreme interpretation of the Northern Ireland protocol to impose a full-scale trade border down the Irish Sea," the British prime minister wrote in an op-ed for the Daily Telegraph

What does the massive British Conservative Party victory, which will keep Boris Johnson as Prime Minister but this time with a huge mandate to "get Brexit done," mean for the U.S.? There are many parallels between what drove the 2019 British election, and those driving the 2020 U.S. presidential election. First among them, is a party (Democrats) whose political agenda has been to repudiate and unwind the 2016 presidential vote, much as the "remainers" (chief among them Labour) sought to repudiate and unwind the 2016 Brexit vote.
