As you are most likely aware by now, Boris Johnson and the Conservatives have swept to a resounding victory in the general election, achieving an overwhelming majority and a strong mandate for Brexit.
Before he achieved all that, he had to actually win his seat in Uxbridge and South Ruislip, which some had thought was potentially up for grabs, thanks a strong campaign by the Labour candidate Ali Milani.
Unfortunately for Milani, it wasn't meant to be, as Johnson won 25,351 votes to Milani's respectful 18,141. At the end of the day, it was only ever going to be these two gentleman who were going to win the seat.
Here are the results in full:
Boris Johnson, Conservatives, 25,351
Ali Milani, Labour, 18,141
Joanne Humphreys, Liberal Democrat, 3,026
Mark Kier, Green, 1,090
Geoffrey Courtenay, UKIP, 283
Lord Buckethead, Monster Raving Loony Party, 125
Count Binface, Independent, 69
Alfie John Utting, Independent, 44
Yace "Interplanetary Time Lord" Yogenstein, Independent, 23
Norma Burke, Independent, 22
Bobby 'Elmo' Smith, Independent, 8
William John Tobin, Independent, 5
Just reading through those names make you realise, that despite everything, you really do have to love this country sometimes.
What is even better, is actually seeing Johnson give his victory speech in front of this mix of serious candidates and 'interplanetary time lords.'
