May fighting to hang on after gamble fails

Sen. Bernie Sanders congratulated Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party he leads for what's being called one of the most stunning upsets in United Kingdom political history.

"That was not the result that we secured". May had been misled by polls indicating that the Conservative Party would be able to decimate the Labour Party, which appeared to be in disarray under the leadership of socialist Jeremy Corbyn. She said the country "needs stability" after the inconclusive election result.

After noon, May was driven from her official Downing Street residence to Buckingham Palace to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government - a formality under the British system. "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row", former Conservative finance minister George Osborne, who was sacked by May when she became prime minister past year, told the BBC. Further announcements were expected on Saturday.

However, the Democratic Unionist Party, the largest unionist political party in Northern Ireland, said it is open to form a government with the Conservatives without the need for a formal coalition deal.

She said the Conservatives and the DUP will work together "having enjoyed a strong relationship over many years". I can not imagine a situation in which the DUP will have any influence on the Conservative Party or the Government's policies on equality.

"The mandate she's got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence", Corbyn said in a speech early Friday. I am very proud of the results that are coming in and the vote for hope.

"We want to have a fair deal with Britain and we want to have a fair final Brexit negotiations". "I would have thought that's enough to go." - main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

"For the economy, households and corporates will be concerned by the increased political uncertainty", said Azad Zangana, senior European Economist at fund manager Schroders in London.

With the Lib Dems picking up just 12 out of parliament's 650 seats, Smith was convinced his stance against the two dominating parties would not block Britain's European Union departure.

With talks due to start in Brussels on June 19, Mr Tusk said it was their "urgent task" to get on with the negotiations in "the best possible spirit".

'With a weak negotiating partner, there's a danger that the negotiations will turn out badly for both sides'.

There was little sympathy for May from some Europeans. After three recounts, Labour took the wealthy London constituency of Kensington from the Conservatives by just 20 votes. The result ended his career and shocked Europe.

May experienced a gradual slide during the campaign period, in which a wide gap between the Conservatives and Labour narrowed.

"Theresa May has put Brexit in jeopardy", said Paul Nuttall, the leader of the pro-Brexit U.K. Independence Party.

Corbyn's newly energized Labour Party officially backs Brexit - since voters endorsed it in a referendum a year ago - but many important figures in the party advocate a much "softer" approach, and their views now may now carry sway. Only the Conservative and Unionist party can provide this.

Since the election, most of the members of her cabinet have kept quiet on the issue of May's future, adding to speculation that her days as prime minister might be numbered.

"I said at the start this election was wrong".
