Brexit Meltdown as Europe Reacts to UK Election Amid 'Casino' Criticism

10 June 2017

The Labour Party, under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, meanwhile gained at least 29 seats, shattering the Conservatives' hope of gaining a clear validation of their Brexit strategy.

She added: "The government I lead will put fairness and opportunity at the heart of everything we do".

Under fire after calling the snap election and then losing her majority, May said she would get on with the job of governing and would select her new cabinet of ministers shortly.

May, who had campaigned against Brexit last year, delivered her terms for withdrawal in March, binding London into a tight, two-year countdown to departure.

Without detailing her next steps, she said: "The country needs a period of stability, and whatever the results are the Conservative Party will ensure we fulfill our duty in ensuring that stability".

It is here where she will come face to face with her angry backbenchers who will want answers over how she lost a 20 point lead to lead them to electoral disaster. Labour had won 261 seats.

Having called an early election in hopes of getting an increased majority that could have strengthened her hand in Britain's exit talks with the EU, May instead saw her majority evaporate completely - leaving her fortunes hanging by a thread and dark clouds over the Brexit negotiations just 10 days before they are due to start.

The Conservatives and the DUP, which is socially conservative and backs Brexit, are expected to work together on a vote-by-vote basis rather than enter a formal alliance. May said she'd be willing to get rid of some human rights laws to better combat terrorism, but it seems voters didn't give into their fear as much as anticipated and agreed with Labour's stance that defeating terrorism can't come from "ripping up our basic rights and our democracy". Now, here we are, with a hung parliament.

Before her defeat, May said she wanted to negotiate the divorce and the future trading relationship with the European Union before Britain leaves in March 2019, followed by what she calls a phased implementation process to give business time to prepare for the impact of the divorce.

"If she had got the majority she wanted, she would have been a supreme political colossus", he said.

She warned European Union ambassadors in January that attempts to punish Britain would be an "act of calamitous self-harm" for European Union countries and repeatedly told voters during the campaign that she would be prepared to walk away from talks without a deal.

Corbyn, 68, may not have dislodged May in the polls but the Labour Party's strong showing prompted him to demand her resignation, saying she "lost votes, lost support and lost confidence" of the people.

Her first major challenge will be getting the Queen's speech passed at the end of June - which sets out the government's legislative plan and essentially amounts to a vote of confidence for the administration. "It is quite possible she will go".

"I don't think the Conservative Government is stable, I don't think the prime minister is stable".

The Conservatives will remain in control. with a coalition with the Northern Irish DUP looking likely to clinch that for the Torys.

Liberal Democrats gained four seats to amass 12 MPs, but lost its former leader and ex-deputy prime minister Nick Clegg in perhaps the highest-profile casualty in a night of stunning results.

Talk in Britain that a different ruling coalition could seek a "softer" Brexit than May has proposed, possibly seeking to remain in the single market, is also problematic for the EU. 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. Corbyn accused the Conservatives of undermining Britain's security by cutting the number of police on the streets.
