Upsetting: Britain votes. Publicado en The Economist Espresso, Jueves 8 de Junio de 2017.

Today’s general election is the second in two years. Theresa May, who became Conservative prime minister after David Cameron resigned following the Brexit referendum, long insisted that no election was necessary. In April a large opinion-poll lead tempted her to call one. The six-week campaign has been dismal, not only because of terrorist attacks in Manchester and London but also because Mrs May’s particularly poor performance—robotic and clichéd—shrank her poll lead to single figures. Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, supposedly a left-wing no-hoper, proved surprisingly effective, winning new support especially among young people (how many will actually vote is another question). Others have struggled. The Scottish Nationalist tide is ebbing, Liberal Democrat hopes of revival on anti-Brexit sentiment have withered and the UK Independence Party may disappear. The Conservative majority is likely to be modest at best. Even a hung parliament is possible: a strikingly poor return on Mrs May’s bet.
