Because of course all this heightened rhetoric about this and it via ominous deadline issued by Tanya and also Julia let's check in the aftermath of the big election there in the UK prime minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party winning a landslide of support. What does that lead the opposition. Right saying today a very happy prime minister Boris Johnson is getting ready to welcome a 109. New conservative MPs.

From the opposition left wing labor posse and old through the last couple days and listens. The results of the of the election loss means there has been. A huge fallout in the labor Ponte an a lot of bits and fighting. About what to do now it's a match that Jeremy Corbin here we'll has been historically unpopular. That leads of the labor party a lot of bases on the doorstep and then polls have cited him with the reason why they changed the debate debate. For the conservatives. And I shift to an inch thing guys because. The US sudden it's just a paid a lot of attention to the results of the election a lot of people wondering. If it Jeremy Corbin huge fan Leah has any lessons to be lens for the Democrats and here they should. Choose as that candidate for president and I just a poll out this quit from Stephen Braun and in the New York Times have a look at those. But exit and from what inextricably linked in 2016.

And elbow and he did I sleep Boris Johnson he did a fact sick kids. Candidates as a matter of traditional British cut scene when he won his seat he said. I signed my fellow candidates and old bag glory load bucket has Elmo. Forgive me if I didn't identify them all. Not if this is. Such a wonderful cook a British the moxie. Anyone he wants the sun for parliament can they have to give a deposit of just Davis 650. Dollar list. Meant to stun a sold it costs to run out of the parliament and of course if you get less than 5% of debate need New Zealand deposits. But that has been this funny tradition. Albeit not on Carrington is sounding against the incumbent prime minister in recent. Election that's gonna call that alma bootleg Elmo because that was not elbow right there you know reminding me the Times Square characters that we have right here right now I was gonna say do you guys have any of these people out there are running again in Times Square there in Times Square but they're not like in front of some that that's very true they're not running for office and outrage like that for 600 dollar duly thank you so much we appreciate it good to see different.
