Retailers praise ‘emphatic clarity’ as Conservatives secure election win

House of Parliament night

Retail bosses have praised today’s general election result, which saw the Conservative Party secure its largest majority since 1987.

The Tories have secured an 80-seat majority in a comprehensive victory, winning seats in 362 constituencies overall.

Many UK retail bosses have praised the result and the mandate it gives Boris Johnson to deliver on Brexit. founder and chief executive John Roberts said: “This is a fantastic result because not only have we got clarity but emphatic clarity – it’s a clear message from the country about what it wants and it gives the government a mandate to get on with the job ahead.”
