Historic defeat for Tories in UK polls: How Rishi Sunak became the ‘fall guy’

Keir Starmer will be Britain’s next prime minister with his centre left Labour Party expected to win a huge majority in a parliamentary election, ending 14 years of often tumultuous Conservative government by trouncing Rishi Sunak’s party. “Tonight, people here and around the country have spoken and they’re ready for change, to end the politics of performance, a return to politics as public service,” Starmer said after winning his seat in London. “The change begins right here … You have voted. It is now time for us to deliver.”
