Searches for alternative countries to live in began to increase just eight minutes after the polls close, with the peak occurring at 8.16am on Friday after Johnson's huge majority was officially confirmed.

A similar search trend took place in the US in 2016 after Donald Trump was victorious in the presidential elections, as well as after the UK referendum to remain in the European Union that same year.

The most recent spike for moving to Canada was first spotted by online betting website OLBG, which tracks search trends relating to polling data and election campaigns.

"We started monitoring terms like this during the EU referendum result and saw similar trends, but this is the most dramatic it’s been since we started monitoring them," said OLBG chief executive Richard Moffat.

“Normally, the search volume for the phrase “move to Canada” is around 1,700 searches a month, or around 55 a day. With the influx of this demand, the term could increase up to as much as 83,300 searches in the month or 2,738 searches in a single day."We started monitoring terms like this during the EU referendum result and saw similar trends, but this is the most dramatic it’s been since we started monitoring them," said OLBG chief executive Richard Moffat.

Following the election result, hundreds of people also shared their intent to leave the country across social media, though many others who were unhappy with the result pledged to stay in order to make things better.

Anyone wishing to leave the UK is obliged to inform relevant government offices, such as HMRC, in order to move abroad.

Voters get the last word
After years of foes trying to subvert referendum, Brexit will get done

To the enormous shock and chagrin of those who believed U.K. voters had buyer’s remorse after voting to quit the European Union in 2016, Boris Johnson was returned to 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister on Thursday with a massive majority.

He whomped the opposition, winning a landslide 80-seat majority with 365 seats, the most decisive win since Margaret Thatcher in 1987 and on a simple promise to get Brexit done.

Brexit naysayers had predicted a closer vote. It was even suggested Johnson might lose his own seat. That goes to show how out of touch some politicians and commentators are about public opinion.

Even those who voted to stay in the EU were fed up with the way politicians dragged their feet trying to thwart democracy and stop Brexit. Three years on, the economy was suffering as U.K. politicians kept going, cap in hand, to Brussels to hammer out a new Brexit deal. Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, dragged her feet and was ineffectual in dealing with Parliament and the EU.

The nightmare demonstrated the contempt those who opposed leaving had for the democratic process. Legislators tied Parliament into procedural knots to prevent a democratically elected government from delivering what voters had asked for.

This strange, divisive and angry election was a referendum on Brexit. Unable to accept the referendum result, those opposing Brexit appeared to want to make it a best-two-outof-three scenario by defeating Johnson and his Conservatives in this election. There was an attempt at strategic voting, whereby Labour and Lib Dem voters in close ridings were urged to hold their noses and vote for the person most likely to defeat the Conservative.

Voters were in no mood for game-playing. The electorate told their leaders in no uncertain terms that they’re tired of being mocked and ignored. It was a resounding affirmation for Johnson and Brexit.

He will now push ahead to implement the deal he’s already brokered with the EU. He’ll get

The electorate told their leaders in no uncertain terms that they’re tired of being mocked and ignored.”

Britain out of the EU by Jan. 31. In a news conference Friday, he struck a conciliatory tone, saying it’s “time to heal.” He wants to move on to other issues, which will be a huge relief to a country worn down by this endless Brexit debate.

The biggest loser is Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, who voters rejected on a massive scale — with good cause. He’s been accused, even within his own party, of anti-semitism. His hard-left policies, which included nationalization of key industries, had more in common with a war-on-capitalism sovietstyle economy than a modern Britain. His party was massacred.

Johnson’s Conservatives won working-class constituencies that had been Labour for more than a century. It will take the Labour party a decade to recover.

Yes, there will be bumps on the road to Brexit. The Scottish Nationalist Party made gains and there’s a real threat of another separation referendum. But would the EU want a Scotland without the rest of the U.K.? The border with Northern Ireland also needs to be figured out. But these are not insurmountable problems.

What the U.K. needs now is a free-trade deal so they can continue to do business with the EU without the frustration of being bullied, overgoverned and micromanaged by Brussels. That’s why Brits wanted out in the first place.

Already there are protesters outside Downing St. demonstrating against Johnson’s win. They’d better get over it. The people have spoken loud and clear, and voters are always right.

Those who fought Brexit, who would deny the will of the majority, need to stand back and allow democracy to happen and not try to turn it into a best three out of five.

British Muslims have started the process of leaving the UK over fears for their ‘personal safety’ now Boris Johnson is Prime Minister for five years, Metro.co.uk can reveal. Among them is the head of a Muslim charity, which provides food parcels for poor people in Manchester, after saying he was scared for the ‘future of his children’. Manzoor Ali said: ‘I’m scared for my personal safety, I worry about my children’s future.’ It comes after the prime minister was accused of ‘Islamophobia and racism’ following a number of controversial comments he made in the past, including his remarks in a 2005 Spectator article in which he claimed it was only ‘natural’ for the public to be scared of Islam.

Bojo lovable bad boy
Canuck Tories could learn from U.K.


Oh, the irony.

On the day Boris Johnson swept British Conservatives to a landslide victory, Canadian Conservative leader Andrew Scheer called it quits.

One leader has a picture-perfect family, has led an apparently blameless life in a rock-solid marriage.

Another is a philanderer, a womanizer and took with him to Downing Street a girlfriend for whom he dumped his wife and to whom he’s not yet married.

In the old political calculus, Johnson would be dead in the water and Scheer’s devoted wife should be measuring for new drapes at Rideau Cottage.

But there’s a whole new political equation and Canadian Conservatives have a lot to learn from Johnson’s victory as they head into their leadership bunfight.

Of course, the U.K.’S election was unusual in that it was a one-issue vote on Brexit.

But the way Johnson’s opponents tied up Parliament in an effort to thwart the will of the referendum offended the democratic sensitivities of Brits, no matter where they stood on leaving the EU.

Johnson’s opponents threw mud — everything from his relationship to a U.S. pole-dancer to allegations he had put his hand on a woman’s knee 20 years ago(!) was fair game. Nothing resonated. Why? Because he’s an unabashed naughty boy. And women particularly like naughty boys.

He made no attempt to hide his indiscretions. He’s not a hypocrite. He appeals to all of us with flaws and foibles and a checkered past.

He was aided by the fact

Britain doesn’t have much of a social conservative faction. Conservative MP Jacob Rees-mogg is closest to being on the religious right. He was generally mocked as being arrogant and snobbish.

Abortion is not fully decriminalized in the U.K.

Two parties, the Lib Dems and Labour, both promised in their platforms to make changes to that. Yet it never became a ballot issue.

LGBTQ issues didn’t surface. You can argue that’s because Brexit was paramount, but no one takes attendance of politicians at Pride parades in the U.K.

Had same sex issues been discussed, you’d think Johnson, with his own marital infidelities, would be the last one to lecture folk on who they can’t marry.

No matter what you think of Johnson, he oozes personality and character.

He’s a tad eccentric — but in a rather endearing way.

Scheer’s problem is that if he has a personality, he hides it well. He comes across as prissy and humourless.

He flubbed his response to revelations that he holds dual U.S. citizenship and he couldn’t clearly enunciate his view on just about anything.

Johnson was born in New York, yet his citizenship never became an issue — probably because Canadians have more of a lovehate relationship with the U.S. than do Brits.

There’s also a message in Johnson’s victory for Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who’s in many ways similar to Bojo.

With his shock of unruly hair and his rumpled suits, Johnson managed to be humble and relatable to working-class people throughout the election — and he managed major breakthroughs in predominantly Labour ridings.

And he laughs at himself. That’s a look that would work well for Ford.

Here’s my advice to the Canadian Conservatives: Quit squabbling and immediately sign up Johnson’s communications team.

The Love Actually parody ad was superb.

His slick message was brilliant in its simplicity: Let’s get Brexit done.

Scheer pussyfooted around, afraid of his own political shadow.

Voters admire boldness and courage and a leader who’ll fearlessly put forward his ideas. They’ll forgive the occasional misstep because we’re all, after all, human.

Instead of attacking Trudeau’s record — blackface, his embarrassing performance on the world stage, his failure to free Canadian hostages in China — Scheer tripped on his own timid shoelaces.

Most importantly, whoever wins the leadership must get a cute dog.

Take it to the polls. Have said dog lick your face as cameras click.

Because when all else fails, dogs make everything better.

Cats, of course, vote NDP.

Johnson’s positive message

Canadians watched with interest as Conservative leader Boris Johnson didn’t just pull off a win in Thursday’s United Kingdom general election, but pulled off a win the likes of which hasn’t been seen in that country in years.

Regions of the country that had been staunchly Labour for a century flipped Conservative under Johnson’s leadership. There is much to learn from this for Canadian politicians from all parties and a lot of it has to do with the power of positivity.

Back in 2015, Canadian voters took a chance on the leader of the third party, Justin Trudeau. They had grown tired of 10 years of Stephen Harper’s stoicism and were looking for a change. Trudeau offered an upbeat agenda of “sunny ways,” which at the time appealed to the regular voter.

We’ve since learned that was a sham. Sunny ways quickly turned to grey skies.

It later became so bad that Trudeau spent most of this recent election campaign throwing mud at Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and having his proxies call Scheer every name under the sun.

Interestingly enough, Trudeau took a hit following his sour campaigning. Was it because of his lousy tone? Perhaps.

Whereas Johnson did no such thing. He looked like he was having fun and extended a warm and inclusive invitation for all voters to join him. It was clearly a message that appealed and his viral videos made everyone smile.

While advocacy for Brexit had previously been smeared as xenophobic and closed-off behaviour, Johnson’s messaging showed the public that this was not the case. It was his positive spin that brought more people on board. He was the quintessential happy warrior.

Contrast Johnson’s performance with grumpy Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s. The socialist candidate seemed like an angry old man fighting yesterday’s battle. Plus the persistent allegations of anti-semitism didn’t help. Corbyn just wasn’t as positive as Johnson.

Trudeau has appeared too negative in recent months. It’s not a good look for a prime minister. The Conservatives should also learn how to sell their free-market policies with a smile.

Canadian politicians could learn a thing or two from what happened during the U.K. election.
