From Brexit to a Hung Parliament, What in the World Is Happening in the UK?

It’s been called one of the worst self-inflicted political wounds of modern times. British Prime Minister Theresa May, seeking to solidify her mandate for a hard exit from the European Union, called for snap elections on June 8th, which ended up dealing the Tories a massive political blow and producing a hung parliament. Meanwhile, terror attacks in Manchester and London followed by the Grenfell Tower tragedy have put the public on edge and security at top of mind as the United Kingdom’s negotiations with the European Union get under way in Brussels. With uncertainty the seeming order of the day, what might be next for our neighbors across the pond? And how far will the ripples extend?
