(Dec 13): Boris Johnson’s election victory will allow him to get Brexit done. He now has to decide what it means in practice.

The size of his parliamentary majority gives Johnson a free rein to take Britain out of the European Union in January after almost four years of gridlock. The decisive win means he can also define Britain’s future relationship with the EU.

Beyond repeatedly telling voters he wants to get Brexit out of the way in order to proceed with his domestic agenda, Johnson was notably reticent during the campaign about what it will mean in practice. Once Britain leaves, he will first need to strike a trade deal with the EU by the end of 2020.
