Up high? Too slow! Corbyn's high-five ends in awkward thud

Jeremy Corbyn appeared to accidentally slap Emily Thornberry's chest in a freakish high five gone awry.

Ms Thornberry laughed off the awkward moment - and it has been an excellent night for Labour, with the Conservatives looking likely to lose their majority. Corbyn and Thornberry beamed for the cameras.

Corbyn and Emily Thornbery, the Shadow Defence Secretary, were celebrating their party's better than expected returns in the United Kingdom election when Corbyn went for a high-five and hit Thornberry in the chest.

"Theresa May's advantage over Jeremy Corbyn is also lower than it was at the start of the campaign, but she and her party have kept their support among key voting groups such as older people".

Corbyn's Labour Party failed to win the election, but it kept May's party from winning a majority, leaving Britian with a "hung parliament".

Emily Thornberry had approached to congratulate the leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, after his arrival at the Islington count centre on Friday morning.

It seems she has indeed lost six seats - or more. "I don't want to be derogatory, but I think she is a lame duck now". At the time of publishing, with 495 of 650 Parliament seats declared, the Conservative and Labour parties were neck and neck, tied at 218 seats each.

Yep, the Brits do throw elegant shade.

It's unclear how this will all turn out, but Corbyn has demonstrated the mass appeal of a candidate with socialist inclinations.
