It’s the Red Wedding of Elections

UK elections results are in.  The Conservative leader David Cameron rose to a surprise victory, standing over the dead political careers of his opponents.  Labour’s Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg of the Liberal Democrats, and UKIP’s Nigel Farage are all resigning after the essential collapse of their parties’ electoral fortunes.

Many journalists are already speculating why the actual results are so different from even the most “surprisingly accurate” inaccurate predictions, but lackluster opposition leadership plays at least a small part.

Bit of advice for the hackers who played that prank on Cameron’s homepage – if you want people to actually vote for Labour, you probably shouldn’t advertise that Ed Miliband was intending to lead them.

David Cameron’s Wikipedia page (very briefly) looked like this yesterday. For those unfamiliar with British politics, that is NOT David Cameron.
