So for those who don't know here in the UK we had the fun of a snap general election. And I am way too chipper about the result. I've got a lot shadenfreude about this. Our prime minister Theresa May called it solely in the hopes of strengthening her majority and getting a proper 'mandate' for Brexit.  

She lost her majority. Likely will lose her job and Labour came out far more strongly than people thought they would.

On the other hand, she's still in power, and she's shored it up  by temaing up with the DUP who I'd barely heard of before but are an Irish party who are socially extremely  backwards but do want a soft brexit so heck tons of trouble is on the horizon there.

So it's not really good for the country but on the other hand I'm so damned glad we  didn't just do what May wanted.
