So, May fucks up by having a snap election that she thinks she can get a super majority only to have to beg the DUP to stay PM. The DUP doesn't believe in Climate Change, Anti-Gay and overall terrible. So, they fit right into the 2016/17 election narrative of people who now hold power that never should.
The biggest surprise was Scotland going to the Tories instead of the Scotland National Party in some bizarre protest vote. Labor did make gains, but not enough. I also appears that May is not going to do anything like this again, so the conservative government is now has to succumb to their more radical elements. I cannot think how anyone in the UK is fine with this.
If it's Richard "Kinky" Friedman, I suppose it's possible. It's going to be fun to see him try, anyway. The New Yorker had a big writeup about his campaign, which seems to focus on education reform and slowing down the executions.
