The UK’s snap election on 8 June initially looked like being a comfortable victory for Theresa May and the Conservatives, but with the polls tightening in the last few weeks, there is now far more uncertainty about the outcome. We asked some of our contributors for their reflections on the campaign and the key things to watch out for when the results come in. Patrick Dunleavy: Three things we’ve learned already from the 2017 campaign turnaround Eunice Goes: Corbyn will lose the election, but he has already changed British politics Thomas J. Leeper: The Brexit election that never was Eleanor Knott: EU citizens – taxation, but no representation Isabelle Hertner: The Liberal Democrats’ pro-EU campaign has fallen flat Stuart Brown: The SNP will win in Scotland, but the story of the night might well be the revival of Scottish Labour Julian Göpffarth: The view from Germany – a longing for British pragmatism
