Editor’s Remarks:
Our readers’ views more or less reflect the mood in the UK at the moment. Theresa May is now forming a minority government, as opposed to the strong majority that she had hoped to win and many had come to expect. As such, her hand will be severely weakened in the upcoming Brexit negotiations. In contrast to last year’s Brexit referendum, 72% of 18-24 year-olds turned up to vote and they are presumed to have overwhelmingly voted for Jeremy Corbyn. Strangely, many of these voters will have voted Labour to oppose the Conservatives’ hard Brexit agenda despite Jeremy Corbyn’s long history of being anti-EU. All things considered, the Tory campaign was lacking and this is well-reflected in the result. Many, opposition and Tory alike, are calling for May’s head.
