As we produced this show the United Kingdom was awaiting the results of a national election. The biggest issue on the table is one you've heard about — the Brexit, the British exit from the European Union. Britain's voted to leave the 28 member union in the summer of 2016, but it's such a complicated process with such deep political divisions over it that it hasn't been completed yet. In October, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for the election that took place yesterday.
He's hoping his party, the conservative party, will win enough seats to push through his Brexit agreement with the European Union. The main opposition party, the labor party, wants to hold another vote on Brexit. There are other issues here too. According to the Reuters News Agency, Prime Minister Johnson wants the British government to spend more on education, law enforcement and healthcare. Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn wants more spending on government services and higher taxes on Britain's with higher incomes. Going into the election the polls indicated that the conservatives had the lead. CNN.com will have the latest on how Britain's vote went.
