We pulled it off ... we broke the deadlock

Speaking at the Conservative's victory rally, Mr Johnson paid tribute to colleagues who 'lost their seats through no fault of their own' but congratulated his party on its biggest majority in three decades, declaring it a 'new dawn' for the country.
"Getting Brexit done is the irresistible, irrefutable, unarguable decision of the British people," he said. "With this decision, we've put an end to all those miserable threats of a second referendum."
Thanking traditional Labour supporters who backed the Conservatives for the first time, he said: "Your hand may have quivered over the ballot paper before you put your cross in the Conservative box and you may intend to return to Labour next time round.
"If that's the case, I'm humbled that you have put your trust in me and you put your trust in us. I and we will never take your support for granted."
In his speech, Mr Johnson, who has since returned to Downing Street along with his partner Carrie Symonds, insisted he will 'work day and night' to get Brexit done by January 31, 'no ifs and no buts'.
I will make it my mission to work night and day, flat out, to prove you right in voting for me this time and to earn your support in the future. In this election your voice has been heard, and it's about time too.

Sal Brinton said: “She [Nicola Sturgeon] realised that the reaction she had was a bit over the top, which is why she apologised - and all credit to her for doing that.”
