Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat
UK exit poll: Conservatives may fall short of majority
20 June, 2017, 00:49
The campaign began with a clear lead for May and the Conservatives, reinforcing a perception that Labour's Jeremy Corbyn was too left-wing to attract widespread support.
With all 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats, the Labour Party had 262 seats, followed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party on 34.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, said the early results showed May had lost her mandate and called for her to resign.
But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil as no clear victor emerged. "The Prime Minister called this election on the basis she would need a stronger mandate to negotiate Brexit", Corbyn said.
Mrs. May faces strong criticism within her own party for her weak performance during the election campaign and for unwisely exercising her prerogative by calling for the election this year, after only two years of a five-year parliament. The polling was higher in the Thursday election than in the general election of 2015, and Labour's startling run was fuelled by young voters.

"I would have thought that's enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all of the people of this country".
Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit Minister David Davis will all stay in office. The figure represents a drop on her current 330 and would put her short of the majority needed to guarantee the chance to form a government.
"Hard Brexit went in the rubbish bin tonight", said former Conservative finance minister George Osborne, as Paul Nuttall, outgoing head of the anti-E.U.
If she is to succeed in delivering the wishes of 52 percent of the public and take Britain out of the European Union, she must find a way to secure the full support of her party to pass legislation preparing for and enacting the departure. At the time of writing, it appears that the Conservatives have struck a non-formal deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (the largest Northern Irish party, which supports Brexit) to allow Theresa May to continue as prime minister in a minority government.
The two parties are broadly politically aligned, but it remains to be seen what price the DUP will demand for its support. DUP leader Arlene Foster confirmed plans to hold talks with the Conservatives to discuss a way "to bring stability to our nation at this time of great challenge".
