Wounded Theresa May hangs on after her catastrophic general election misjudgment

12 Juin 2017

The Labour leader, who has insisted the Conservatives lost the election despite being the largest party, was photographed by Times columnist Giles Coren at the football practice in sunny north London as the Prime Minister grappled with the fallout of losing her majority.

It was never meant to be a high-stakes gamble for Britain's risk-averse prime minister, but Theresa May's attempt to strengthen her leadership by calling an early election has instead left her authority in tatters.

May said she could rely in parliament on the support of her "friends" in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party after her governing Conservatives failed to win a majority. It is said a deal has been worked out with Democratic Unionist Party which has won 10 seats to form a coalition government if permitted by the Queen.

May will meet the head of state Queen Elizabeth II at 12:30 pm (1130 GMT) and ask for permission to form a new government, according to her Downing Street office.

The EU's chief negotiator said the bloc's stance on Brexit and the timetable for the talks were clear, but the divorce negotiations should only start when Britain is ready.

Few have a better temperature of the city's voters than pro-EU Labour voter Debra Elowe, serving a steady flow of customers out of her food van in the city centre. "We need a government that can act", said Oettinger.

Standing in front of 10 Downing Street, May said her Conservatives and the DUP will work together to "fulfill the promise of Brexit".

"I would have thought that's enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all the people of this country".

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLR) shares were last seen down -0.29% at $10.37, which is 18.27% higher than the previous trading session. Finally, ETRADE Capital Management LLC boosted its stake in shares of SeaWorld Entertainment by 68.4% in the third quarter.

Meanwhile the supposed loser, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, savored a surprisingly strong result and basked in the adulation of an energized, youthful base.

"I'm afraid we ran a pretty terrible campaign", Soubry said. Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka of the Czech Republic told Czech Television that "now it will be necessary to wait for who will form a government and what this government will bring to negotiations over Brexit", Reuters reports. And she wanted a referendum held as soon as Britain agreed to a deal with the European Union, so that Scots could decide whether to remain in the United Kingdom under those terms.

In Wales, much of the Westminster bubble was predicting massive reverses for Labour but, as in Britain as a whole, once the media balance guidelines for the general election kicked in, the positive coverage of Corbyn and his message of hope boosted Labour. Her soul was AWOL already but this particular deal with Norn Ireland Hillbillies the DUP surely condemns that soul if it ever should turn up.

However, in Scotland-specific terms the loss of seats also appeared to be a rejection of SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon's desire to hold a second referendum on independence. "I think a lot of the senior figures in the party don't like her, don't like what she put in the [party's election platform], don't like her advisers", Prof.

For the Liberal Democrats, former deputy prime minister and party leader Nick Clegg lost his Sheffield Hallam seat to Labour, completing his fall from Grace. As the polls suggested a tightening race, pollsters spoke less often of a landslide and raised the possibility that May's majority would be eroded.

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.

Last Saturday, three assailants mowed down pedestrians and launched a stabbing rampage around London Bridge, killing eight people before being shot dead by police. Two weeks earlier, a suicide bomber killed 22 people as they were leaving an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Corbyn faced intense opposition from the right-wing tabloid press and from the Evening Standard, newly edited by former Treasury chief George Osborne, whom she fired when replacing Cameron last summer following the Brexit vote.
