British Prime Minister David Cameron and his Conservative Party won an unexpectedly decisive victory in yesterday's parliamentary elections. Polls had predicted a very tight race.
Cameron met with Queen Elizabeth II today, and then returned to his office at 10 Downing Street, where he announced he will form a majority government.
The separatist Scottish National Party also won big yesterday. Meanwhile, Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party, and Nick Clegg, the leader of Cameron's former coalition partner the Liberal Democrats, both stepped down today after their parties' major losses.
The BBC's Rob Watson joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson from London to discuss the election results.
