UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has suffered a stunning defeat in a parliamentary by-election that is being viewed as a referendum on his government amid weeks of scandal and soaring COVID-19 infections. Liberal Democrat Helen Morgan, a centrist representing England’s third-biggest party in North Shropshire, overturned a Conservative majority of almost 23,000 votes from the last election to win the 16 December 2021 Contest. In the by-election, the governing Conservative Party was defeated by the Liberal Democrats with a 34% swing. This by-election was significant because it was considered a safe seat for Conservatives that they have held for 189 years.
