As Corbyn rises, May comes under fire; others in shock

As Corbyn rises, May comes under fire; others in shock”

"I'm afraid we ran a pretty awful campaign", she said.

Theresa May has announced that she will form a minority government with the support of the DUP after seeking permission from the Queen.

In a resignation statement on the Conservative Home website, Timothy conceded that the campaign had failed to communicate "Theresa's positive plan for the future", and missed signs of surging support for the opposition Labour Party.

But north of the border the Tories performed strongly under the leadership of Ruth Davidson, winning 12 new seats as the Scottish National Party lost ground.

The early election was meant to strengthen the British Conservative Party's hand in the lead-up to Brexit negotiations, but it has backfired spectacularly.

This is the first time since the 1990s that Britain has a minority government, in which the governing party can not get measures though Parliament without outside support.

If the Conservatives can count on the 10 seats won in Northern Ireland by the Democratic Unionist Party, they would have a fragile majority.

Meanwhile, Labour has made 29 gains with the Conservatives losing 13 seats.

British politicians, including within May's own party, differ widely on what they want from the Brexit negotiating process. She vowed to take the country out of the EU's single market and customs union, essentially a free-trade zone, radically changing Britain's relationship with one of its biggest trading partners. Her predecessor, David Cameron, first asked British voters to decide in 2016 whether to leave the EU.

The latest election shock is "yet another own goal" that will make "already complex negotiations even more complicated", said the European Parliament's top Brexit official, Guy Verhofstadt.

"Everybody is positioning themselves", said Anand Menon, professor of European politics and foreign affairs at Kings College London. May had been expected to win comfortably.

"Our shared responsibility and urgent task now is to conduct the negotiations on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union in the best possible spirit, securing the least disruptive outcome for our citizens, businesses and countries after March 2019", Mr Tusk, who chairs summits of EU leaders, said. Protagonists of the Conservative Party live and die by the sword. Many analysts said it was unlikely May could remain leader for long now that her authority has been eroded.

"And I don't feel like the current prime minister or, indeed, the Tory party, has any idea about what to do with Brexit at the moment". She needs 18 more seats, with only 17 more seats left to declare.

"I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility", Corbyn told the Sunday Mirror, predicting that there could be another election within months. It's hard to predict how they'll react, he says.

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, said he hoped there would be no further delays, and that the result of the United Kingdom general election would not have a "major impact on the negotiations we are desperately waiting for".
