Election night: Claire on France 24

Claire gave her initial reaction to the general election exit poll. She praised the electorate for reaffirming their desire to leave the European Union and defying the remain establishment. Claire also drew attention to the collapse of the Labour vote in the north, and the fact ordinary people deserted the party largely because of their failure to honour the referendum. Moving forward, Claire retained her reservations regarding Boris’s deal but was glad the referendum result was finally going to be honoured.
