‘Let the healing begin’ Boris Johnson declared today, in a victory speech on the steps of Number 10 aimed at bringing a fractured country back together.
He insisted the focus would be on the NHS.
But his landslide victory puts Brexit right back on the immediate agenda – the Withdrawal Bill likely to go before MPs next week.
And it will put Scottish independence front and centre too – thanks to a resurgent SNP.
As for Labour – with their worst result since the thirties, the political recriminations begin – and the search for a new leader.
