Corbyn vows to force May to resign 'within a matter of days'

"In a series of tweets, Siegfried Muresan, leader of the European Parliament's largest party, the EEP said: "'I will be a bloody hard woman to Juncker' said May 5 weeks ago. this morning she looks bloody weak. May had hoped that the polls would give her an enhanced mandate and strengthen her hand at forthcoming Brexit negotiations.

Her centre-right party came first but lost its majority in parliament, meaning it is likely to have to secure the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and its 10 extra seats to push it over the line.

Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, replaces joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill.

On a humiliating night for the Prime Minister the Tories slipped from a total of 331 seats to 318, while Labour gained 32 seats to reach 262. Allen said she couldn't see May hanging on for "more than six months".

The UK citizens voted to leave the European Union at the referendum on June 23, 2016, and on March 29, London officially started the process of withdrawing from the bloc by triggering the Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability.

Hammond also annoyed many Conservatives who want a clean break with the European Union by repeatedly stressing the need for a Brexit deal that allows companies to keep on hiring the migrant workers they need.

USGA says blimp crash at Open came in open field

The British PM, however has shown no inclination to resign and is trying to form a minority government with the help of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

It is thought May would seek some kind of informal arrangement with the DUP that could see it "lend" its support to the Tories on a vote-by-vote basis, known as "confidence and supply", the BBC report said. The DUP is a Northern Irish political party that's socially conservative, pro-Brexit, and in favor of keeping Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom.

She also declined to take part in TV debates, which was also regarded as damaging. According to the exit polls, whichever party forms the next government will need to form a coalition with smaller parties, a reality that is more common in other parliamentary democracies, such as Israel. We should remember this was, as you said at the beginning, a snap election.

May and her team of ministers retain full legal powers and will continue heading the government, until a new one is sworn in.

Niblett said: "Having made Brexit the rationale for the election, she nevertheless made no effort during the campaign to explain how she would manage the negotiation or what a successful deal would look like".

But Elmar Brok, a German conservative and the European Parliament's top Brexit expert, told the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper that the talks would now be more complicated. He only just made it back into parliament with a majority of 777.

"A failed campaign leaves Theresa May humbled and her party reeling", its editorial said. But Britain's Saturday newspapers agreed she is just clinging on. Many analysts said it was unlikely May could remain leader for long now that her authority has been eroded. "It is far from guaranteed to vote the deal through".

But Graham Brady, who chairs the influential 1922 Committee of backbench Conservative lawmakers, said a "self-indulgent" party leadership campaign would only cause more uncertainty.
