No signs of CCHQ repeating 2017’s error, when it was offensively slow to thank Party members. This time, the following email went out from Boris Johnson mere minutes after voting closed:
The polls have closed. The results will come soon. Whatever the outcome, I want you to know how grateful I am for your support.
Every single penny of your membership subscription powered this campaign.
All the days spent knocking on doors. All the hours spent hitting the phones. All the social media posts you shared.
We couldn’t have done it without you.
So thank you, Mark – from me and my whole team. I hope you enjoy a celebration tonight.
With any luck, tomorrow we’ll be getting to work.
