I'm really sorry :(

I'm not sure I understand well enough what the consensus is, it seems harder to characterise than before. My impression of the election is that people were pleased it was better than they'd expected (in terms of, the current government losing position), and let themselves think that was better news than it was. And likewise, I think many people think of "roll back austerity" as necessary, and whatever Corbyn says, his faction is probably *more* likely than any of the other main English parties or factions to move in that direction, and that means, people hope against hope that he wasn't as committed to brexit as it sounded like he might be. I felt similarly until recently. Or other people, decided that the lib dems were the only option for anti-brexit and pro-civil-rights, and hoped they wouldn't creep to the right economically. I think that translates into people choosing the least-bad of bad options available, but then, talking as if it's really good. That's really bad, especially when people demonise anyone doing differently, but it may over-emphasise how much they fundamentally disagree.
