    For those of you who lose sleep at night because you handed power to a right wing orange turd, feel sorry for us in the UK. We've just handed power to 10 of them.

    But I was wondering what alternative the Tories had, other than striking a deal with DUP in order to achieve an overall majority.
    What a mess.
