This week we’re discussing the outcome of Thursday’s general election in the UK. Prime minister Theresa May called the snap vote at a time when her incumbent Conservative party was flying high in the polls. But after a shaky, and frankly unconvincing, campaign the electorate dealt her a sizable blow: no working majority, and now she looks set to try and rule as a minority government. In the other corner an almost renascent Labour opposition under a revitalised Jeremy Corbyn. So yet more political turbulence this week – and the promise of more ahead, especially with Brexit discussions prominent on the agenda and now a surely even less-convincing British delegation set to head for the table in Brussels.... our panel reacts to another extraordinary night in the world of politics.
