So the government is being formed by the Conservative's, in coalition with the Irish DUP. I don't really follow Irish politics, but from what I hear they're pretty insane, they've had associations with climate deniers and people calling for creationism to be taught alongside evolution in schools

It seems like Labour was the biggest winner. This result will certainly be a huge boon for Corbyn and keep him in the leadership for at least the forseeable future.

In spite of early predictions of an upswing in the Lib Dem vote, they seem to be in more or less the same place they were before the election. UKIP were wiped out and the Green's vote share halved. The SNP also saw pretty significant losses. Commentators are saying it looks like the UK is moving back towards politics being dominated by the two major parties.

"Citizen Weston illustrated his theory by telling you that a bowl contains a certain quantity of soup, to be eaten by a certain number of persons, an increase in the broadness of the spoons would produce no increase in the amount of soup. He must allow me to find this illustration rather spoony."
