The 2019 general election represents a very significant moment in British politics as the Conservatives won 365 seats, their best result since 1987. The election changed the relationship between Parliament and Government. Boris Johnson’s victory means that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 31 January 2020. This is not the end of the Brexit because the UK will enter the implementation period that is due to operate until 31 december 2020; during the implementation period the United Kingdom will negotiate its future relationship with the European Union.
The European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 was backed by British Parliament, but devolution assemblies rejected the bill. The Act has a huge consititutional significance, but it was not subjected to a proper parliamentary scrutiny.
