UK Liberal Democrat leader Swinson loses seat to Scottish National Party

The leader of Britain’s pro-European Union Liberal Democrats, Jo Swinson, lost her parliamentary seat to the Scottish National Party on Friday. The Liberal Democrats had hoped to win over ’remain’ voters by pledging to overturn Britain’s 2016 vote to leave the EU but an exit poll predicted they would gain just one seat in parliament compared to the last national election in 2017.

Sadly Jess Phillips retained her seat. Oh well. You can't win them all.

5 months as leader will be one of the shortest. What a terrible shame.
