Prime Minister May's Conservative Party lost 12 seats in Parliament while Corbyn's Labor Party picked up 31. Since the Conservative Party no longer has a majority they had to bargain with the Democratic Union Party (DUP) to hold that majority. The DUP is pretty much a dupa, denying climate change and hating marriage equality. Hopefully this is another sign, along with Macron's victory in France, of a trend to more progressive politicians and policies winning.
