Jeremy Corbyn accidentally high-fives Emily Thornberry's breast

So hunky dory, in fact, that Corbyn thought it was well time for a high five. He stood against Corbyn after predicting the party would be facing "annihilation" on June 8 because the "blinkered" leader lacks the attributes required to win.

Resulting in a hung parliament for the United Kingdom, it's safe to say he's got a few things to celebrate.

In a rousing victory speech, Mr Corbyn told the crowd gathered at the count at the Sobell Leisure Centre in Finsbury Park that his victory, and Labour's gains nationally, meant that politics had changed fundamentally. "Of people voting for hope, hope for the future".

A special election called by Prime Minister Teresa May, in an effort to bolster her majority in Parliament, turned into a stunning repudiation of the Tories.

She said: 'We've got Theresa May squatting in Downing Street. "The rallies and meetings across the country go far beyond this".

The Conservatives, meanwhile, hoped to better their 2015 performance, when they came second in both constituencies.

A British author ate his book during a live TV show after his prediction that the opposition Labour party would poll less than 38 per cent votes went wrong. They said that the Tory party was now engaging with some of the most reactionary and right-wing elements in DUP. With exit polls showing May likely to lose the Conservative majority in Parliament and possibly her seat, the mood was celebratory.

"This didn't happen by magic, it happened because of a well-organised, energetic campaign led by Carwyn Jones in Wales alongside a United Kingdom campaign led by Jeremy Corbyn that captured the mood of the country and built support".
