May failed to get the mandate she sought

10 June 2017

Theresa May's Conservatives, who anticipated an increased number of seats throughout the General Election campaign, find themselves the largest party in Parliament, but without an overall majority. "Well the mandate she's got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence".

"Without a government, there's no negotiation", he said Friday morning by phone on Germany's Deutschlandfunk radio.

The following is an edited transcript of their conversation.

"I don't worry about that, partly because I think that the Democratic Party has stayed pretty grounded in fact and reality", Obama told Axelrod at the time.

Will we still have a "hard Brexit"? While Labour didn't manage to defeat the Tories, the party did far better than expected and swept away internal worries about Mr. Corbyn's leadership. May, however, has been promoting "hard Brexit".

Afterward, Arena said he understood Dempsey's reaction but, to improve the team's situation, he had to remove one of the forwards. The Americans have gained just two points in qualifiers at Azteca, 0-0 draws in 1997 (day game) and 2013 (night).

"The party that has lost in this election is the Conservative Party, the arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost". To avoid any real debate about the issues Britain faces - in particular, the reality of Brexit - she had to make the election about nothing at all. They debate - and approve - laws, including the policies of the government, but we'll get to that in a second.

"People are crying out for help and he's been working on that, he hasn't really been working on Brexit", she said, while locals browsed bric-a-brac displayed on her daughter's stall.

May had spent the campaign denouncing Corbyn as the weak leader of a spendthrift party that would crash Britain's economy and flounder in Brexit talks, while she would provide "strong and stable leadership" to clinch a good deal for Britain. And he managed to rally the support for that reason. And he, unsurprisingly perhaps, said Theresa May should resign.

Just after noon, May was driven the short distance 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 is also possible that Conservative leavers were less motivated to vote. I think, frankly, she should have resigned and maybe wanted to resign.

From the start, an election called by May when polls gave her a commanding lead did not go to plan. Her first foreign trip as prime minister was to India, but she displayed naive arrogance by announcing fresh curbs on Indian students just before coming here to cultivate more bilateral trade.

Vettel responded to Hamilton's first effort with a 1:11:795, a time that prompted the Brit to go even quicker. Wehrlein brought an early end to the session, as he lost control in Turns 1 and 2 in the final minutes.

Ryssdal: Who, though, Stephen - and yes, May's job is at risk here - but who wants this job now? Former Labour PM Tony Blair said Corbyn would kill the party such that it would never rise again. He's saved his own skin because most of his own lawmakers a year ago voted to depose him. Theresa May clearly wants it. Allen said she couldn't see May hanging on for "more than six months".

Ryssdal: Cast your eyes across the English Channel for me Stephen, to Europe for a minute. The real negotiations - which are supposed to take two years, but are likely to take much longer - haven't even started.

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, said he hoped there would be no further delays, and that the result of the United Kingdom general election would not have a "major impact on the negotiations we are desperately waiting for".

Beard: Well, on the one hand, they must be rubbing their hands with glee because they can say to any country that is considering pulling out of the European Union, "Look at the trouble it causes".

One of the lead European Union negotiators, Guy Verhofstadt, criticized May on Twitter, writing: "Yet another own goal, after Cameron now May, will make already complex negotiations even more complicated".

Trump says he would testify under oath that Comey lied
Earlier Mr Trump had his silence on Twitter , tweeting he'd been vindicated and derided Comey as a "leaker". Comey went on to say that's when he shared the memos with his friend who is a Columbia Law professor.

Despite desperately trying to leverage nationalist support in the wake of recent terror attacks, the U.K. Independence Party won zero seats and saw its popularity fall precipitously, attracting fewer than 600,000 votes-down from 3.9 million in 2015.
