First let's have a look at the General Election itself. The events of the General Election are very simple. The Labour Party lost. Badly. Ed Miliband's poor bacon sandwich etiquette combined with his numerous failed attempts at acting like a normal human being had finally grown old with the electorate. His punishment was electoral failure and to have his name turned into the answer to a reasonably difficult pub quiz question. Nick Clegg and his Lib Dems were crushed under the weight of their unpopular term in government, whilst after years of speculation, UKIP had finally failed to pop the the Westminster bubble they'd been fighting against for so long. Oh and strangely, to the surprise of far too many people, Scotland had been invaded by... eeerrm... Scots! Shocking. Next you'll tell me Sinn Fein have Irish supporters.
So that left a Conservative majority. Exactly what I voted for. We now have a party in power that doesn't try to spend their way out of recessions and with a core political ideology that should lead to reduced dependence on welfare and decreased tax on individauls and corporations. I don't understand how that could sound bad, but if it does to you then, tough. That's what you've got.
Now we've got the details of Labour's first big defeat of 2015 out of the way, let's move on to defeat number two. Their own leadership contest. They lost this quite badly by electing Jeremy Corbyn. A man which left wing views so strong that rumours of possible challengers to his leadership have already surfaced within three months of his sizeable victory over Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall. This coupled with his crushing defeat on the issue of Syrian airstrikes on Wednesday last week paints a bad picture for Corbyn's future. The issue of airstrikes had forced him into giving his MP's a free vote at the last minute eventually resulted in more than 60 of his MP's betraying their leader on the night. Free vote or not, he had failed to control his MP's and persuade them his pacifist approach was the most effective.
Despite this, Corbyn started of annoyingly rather well. His new approach to PMQ's and his ability to 'speak human' all looked rather good to begin with and still keeps him higher than David Cameron in the polls. However, in the coming months he will be pestered by the press for policies, and will have to feed the sharks before they have his arm off. This is where he will fall on his face, as given his ideology we can take a good guess at his key policies. They will be three things; unaffordable, an insult to the middle classes and fruitless attempts to spend money to make money.
In summary Jeremy Corbyn's days as leader are numbered, but if by some miracle he still leads the party by 2020, the electorate will make him go the same way as Miliband and Clegg. So grab your notebook and get down the pub while you can still remember who they are.
