Newspaper headlines: 'Rejoice for Boris' after 'historic' Tory win

For the Financial Times, Boris Johnson's election gamble has paid off in "spectacular style" after the public overwhelmingly embraced his "Get Brexit Done" campaign slogan.

"Rejoice! " is the headline for the Daily Mail. The paper says Boris Johnson's "thumping win" will finally see Brexit delivered - and sound the death knell for another EU referendum.

The Mail says voters delivered a humiliating verdict on Jeremy Corbyn's brand of socialism. It forecasts an "extraordinary civil war" in Labour's ranks and a brutal leadership contest.

For the Guardian, the result is a "crushing defeat" for Mr Corbyn, and a repudiation of his offer of "real change" for Britain.

The Daily Telegraph says Jeremy Corbyn has now cemented his place as the least popular and least successful Labour leader in modern history.

The Times believes Brexit and Boris Johnson have re-drawn the electoral map by smashing through Labour's red wall of seats in Northern England and the Midlands.

The paper predicts tension between London and Edinburgh over a second independence referendum, thanks to the scale of the SNP's projected success.

The Daily Express welcomes what it says is a decisive vote in favour of Parliament finally respecting the EU referendum result, and freeing the UK from Brussels' rule.

"Nightmare before Christmas" is the headline for the Daily Mirror - which predicts five more years of "Tory hell".
