Lewis said a landslide victory for Theresa May would have given her a lot more authority going into the negotiations on Brexit, which is a worry for the markets.

In what will rank as one of the most remarkable elections in modern British history, May's gamble to expand her party's parliamentary majority failed spectacularly, raising doubts that she will be able to persevere and lead a minority government with the support of Northern Ireland's Unionists.

It is socially conservative, notably opposing same-sex marriage, and supports Brexit, but opposes a return to a "hard" border between the Irish Republic and the British province.

"From hubris to humiliation", said the left-leaning Guardian.

"Other personnel issues are for other days", she said when asked about their future.

Some Conservative lawmakers called for May's joint chiefs of staff, Fiona Hill and Nick Timothy, to be sacked for their key role in the election campaign.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May addresses the country after Britain's election at Downing Street in London, Britain June 9, 2017.

But for May, there is little time to waste with the important business of Brexit talks fast approaching.

Defence Minister Michael Fallon said on Sunday the cabinet would meet "early next week".

Mr Corbyn defied the polls by gaining 30 seats in Thursday's election, leaving a hung Parliament.

May's only hope of forming a government is to win support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which won 10 seats.

This is why women in Northern Ireland either face a costly and incredibly stressful journey to England and Scotland to have an abortion, or are forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term.

"We stood on a clear policy platform of wanting to strengthen the Union, of working for a good deal for Northern Ireland as the United Kingdom leaves the EU and of promising to do our best to get Stormont up and running again for the benefit of all".

May's. Mr. Corbyn said he did not think Ms. The Labour Party would then have inherited Brexit, and the Conservative Party could shout "We told you so" from the sidelines as the costs came due.

Analysts say May's electoral debacle could reopen what had seemed largely a closed debate - both with pro-EU members of Parliament trying to take advantage of the prime minister's weakness and Euro-skeptic government ministers threatening her if she dares water down a Brexit deal. The Conservative Party appeared, at the time, to ignore Northern Ireland's needs through calling a General Election in the absence of a government at Stormont. "One of them is country, one of the others is LGBTI rights", she told the BBC.

May was interior minister for six years before rising to premier in the political chaos that following last June's Brexit referendum.

Much focus will now fall upon the party's leader Arlene Foster, a tough character whose politics were influenced by the Troubles. Labour surpassed expectations by winning 262. The situation has been a little clouded by the recent general election which has effectively put the Conservative party in place as a minority government.

"Voters do not want further months of uncertainty and upheaval", William Hague wrote in the Daily Telegraph, while adding that "very serious lessons" would be learned.
