David Cameron is poised to return as U.K. prime minister after steering his Conservatives to an unexpected majority, helped by a landslide for nationalists in Scotland at Labour’s expense.
The pound jumped as projections of the final tally in the British general election indicated that the Conservatives had defied opinion polls to easily defeat Ed Miliband’s Labour Party. With most seats declared, the BBC forecast the Tories to take 331 of Parliament’s 650 seats to Labour’s 232 seats, a result that would allow Cameron to ditch his Liberal Democrat coalition partner of the past five years and govern alone.
The Sweetest Victory of All
Cameron hailed the election outcome as the “the sweetest victory of all” and a vindication of the Tory campaign based on his record of producing an economic recovery and cutting a record budget deficit. The result also raises the prospect of a referendum on whether Britain should remain in the European Union, while the surge in support for the Scottish National Party renews questions over the integrity of the United Kingdom just eight months after Scots voted “No” to independence.
With Cameron immediately renewing his pledge to hold a referendum on British membership of the European Union, the result throws up questions about Britain’s constitutional future. For now, the surprise victory was welcomed by markets, with stocks and the pound rallying as it became clear Cameron had defied forecasts of a hung parliament to easily defeat Ed Miliband’s Labour Party and govern alone.
The premier was meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace as the Conservatives reached the 326-seat threshold that allows them
to ditch their Liberal Democrat coalition partners and govern alone in the 650-seat Parliament.
