Trump Offers 'Support' To May After Polls Setback

May "has lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence". The correct figures are 42.4 and 40 percent, respectively.

The British currency lost as much as 3 cents against the dollar by Friday as the results confirmed exit poll predictions that Prime Minister Theresa May had failed in her gambit to gain a stronger majority for those Brexit talks.

May had called the snap vote in April to strengthen her mandate ahead of negotiations with the European Union to quit the bloc.

On the one hand, a weakened Conservative prime minister might not have the power to resist calls from some within the party who want that clean break, even if that means losing privileged access to the European Union single market.

May's Conservative party is still the largest party in Parliament, but no longer has enough seats to govern alone, after key seats fell to the Labour Party.

It's looking like the Conservative Party will remain in power with a semi-stable working majority of 16: the Conservatives plus Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) seats, minus Sinn Fein and the Speaker.

"I am delighted to see Labour do so well", said Sanders, who campaigned for Corbyn in the days before the election.

After the voting, Corbyn called on May to resign.

The Czech prime minister said Friday that Britain should not be granted any extension on the two-year deadline for the Brexit talks. Mrs May's party believes that government is in its DNA.

"Mrs May is now fatally wounded", The Times wrote.

May, who went into the election with a reputation for quiet competence, was criticized for a lackluster campaigning style and for a plan to force elderly people to pay more for their care, a proposal her opponents dubbed the "dementia tax".

The University of Bath professor then began munching on a few torn-out pages, leaving him unable to answer a follow-up question from the program's host.

The poll forecast the Scottish National Party (SNP) would win 34 seats, the center-left Liberal Democrats 14, the Welsh nationalist party Plaid Cymru three and the Greens one.

Politicians and citizens expressed concerns over the DUP's stance on various issues - it is anti-abortion, has railed against LGBT rights, and previously appointed a climate change denier as environment minister in Northern Ireland.

I will now form a government, a government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country. "It is not only about the United Kingdom, but also about the future of Europe", he told The Associated Press. We know when they must end.

May's office has said that the most senior Cabinet members - including Treasury chief Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd - will keep their jobs, but she is expected to shuffle the lower ranks of ministers.
