A special election called by Prime Minister Teresa May, in an effort to bolster her majority in Parliament, turned into a stunning repudiation of the Tories. Leading the charge was Jeremy Corbyn, whose Labour party picked up 261 seats, leading to a hung Parliament.
He had a lot to celebrate last night, and boy did he botch it. Corbyn went in to high five another Labour member, Emily Thornberry, and missed. Badly.

Wow. That is as awkward as it gets. There’s a chance Corbyn will be prime minister now, with a lot more public appearances, so he better practice.
