Welcome to this special, Corbyn-Might Maneuver edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast with our British-Irish-U.K. correspondent William Campbell coming to us (naturally) from Berlin to give us the lowdown on the shocking outcome of the British Parliamentary elections.

William is staying up until three in the morning just so we can podcast the news before anyone else! And here is our scoop: Britain is a bloody mess! The Tories failed miserably. But Labor didn’t win either. So what does *that* mean?!? Do they call another election? Can Jeremy Corbyn actually become Prime Minister? Is the Brit’s answer to Bernie Sanders ready for the job?

Or will the task fall to Theresa May after she crawls on her knees to the Scots or the kooky Evangelical right?

William will break it down for us. And, as if enough wasn’t going on already, we preview the upcoming French elections where the darling Manny Macron looks like Napoleon these days as left and right traditional parties collapse.

Check it out.

And, need I say, if you like the podcast drop us a couple bucks for a cup of coffee and give us eighteen stars on iTunes!

Cheerio!

    What an unmitigated disaster. Theresa May was a horrible choice to lead the Conservative Party.

    All the excitement of a hearty bowl of porridge.

    Theresa May is refusing to resign as PM, despite the disastrous result. Completely daft.
