The political establishment could barely hide its astonishment. A hung parliament. Jeremy Corbyn a far left relic of the 80s, a laughing stock a mere six weeks earlier and the subject of two coup attempts from within his own ranks had lead the Labour Party to an election result hardly anyone could believe. This was supposed to be Teresa May’s crowning moment, her 100 seat majority, a new Iron Lady emboldened to seize the Brexit negotiations by the throat and define her career. Yet from the rubble of the election it was one Jeremy Corbyn that emerged the strongest, his party energised, seemingly on the verge of one final push that could topple a Tory Party in disarray.
