All eyes on the UK today. Will May end up having a hung parliament - or will there also be some quartering? Or will we see the Tories run off with the loot into a glorious sunset of the Brexit?
This is in line with Colman's cheerful analysis
U.K. Election prediction: somewhat increased Tory majority.
Not small enough for them to take May out immediately, but too small to secure her position, ensuring she'll be gone by Christmas and spend the negotiations trying to shore up her position while rivals exploit them in manoeuvring. She'll still be beholden to the worst extremists in her party of course.
I can't think of a worse case.
