Ian Blackford, the SNP Westminster leader, congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their election win, saying it “gives great hope to progressives here in Scotland and around the world.”
“The integrity of democracy demands that this outcome be recognised in America and internationally,” he said in a series of tweets.
To officially accept this outcome, the Prime Minister must arrange an early phone call with President-elect Biden and congratulate him on a historic achievement.
Boris Johnson must focus on his own reputation as ‘Britain Trump’ in the United Kingdom.
“His extreme Brexit policies and his decision to align himself so closely with the narrow-minded policies of Donald Trump have increasingly isolated the Tory prime minister on the world stage.”
Sir Keir Starmer, Labour’s leader, congratulated Joe Biden on his likely win.
Sir Keir tweeted, “He has run a campaign based on the values we share in the UK – decency, integrity, compassion and strength,”

And I want to congratulate @KamalaHarris on being elected the first woman of colour to take on the job as Vice President.
Her triumph is one of optimism and solidarity over discord and dishonesty. For a better, more prosperous future, millions of Americans of all backgrounds and ages have come forward to vote.

For the world, this is also a significant moment. It’s an opportunity to reassert the role of America on the world stage as a force for good. A country that will work to fight this pandemic and tackle climate change with Britain and other allies.
The ideals of Labour have always been shared by Joe Biden and the Democrats, and the ties between our two parties remain solid.
