Quick UK update

Hoyle, as outlined in the previous post, has been elected speaker. Bryant ran a stronger campaign than I expected, and finished second.

In the election, the Tories have gone from around 36% to around 40% in the polls, while Labour has gone from around 24% to around 28%. This is coming, in part, from every party, but is especially coming from both the LibDems and the Brexit Party.

If current trends continue, the Tories could well win the largest majority since before the WW2, and the largest non-coalition government since 1832, the first truly democratic election in the UK.
