Chapo Trap House: Episode 116 - Jezz In My Pants (6/12/17)

Jezza turned Labour and the whole UK left around, in a historic upset. The Tories' psycho leper government is doomed. The American Libs are shook. Jim Messina is in hiding. A spectre is haunting Britain — the spectre of the Boy.

The crew starts the episode off popping a champagne bottle and pouring into sake glasses Amber stole from a local bar, because the dirtbag left lives its values. This is a great mirror to the post-U.S. election episode where the hosts articulated the utter despair people were feeling. In this episode the hosts take an unapologetic victory lap for the radical political idea that the things can get better.

A good companion piece to this episode with a bit more meat to it is Sam Kriss's article today on AlterNet: The Truth About Jeremy Corbyn's Triumph Staring Us Smack in the Face.

On the DUP "These people, after Saint Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland, brought them back in to handle them." Holy shit

It's like everyone's been storing up their Norn Iron accents since 1998 and are just so excited to bust them out.

Amber's article is here. Good stuff on what constitutes a strike and what constitutes a successful strike.
