United Kingdom election: Brexit plans in disarray

French doesn't think Brexit didn't really influence the outcome of the election for the Conservatives.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who took the party from one Scottish seat to 13, said there would now have to be "consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave".

May's party won 318 seats, 12 fewer than it had before the snap election, and eight short of the 326 needed for an outright majority.

Timothy said he took responsibility for the Conservative manifesto, including a plan for elderly social care that caused a backlash among many core voters.

May called the election to win explicit backing for her stance on Brexit, which involves leaving the EU's single market and imposing restrictions on immigration while trying to negotiate free trade deal with the bloc.

To stay in power, the Conservatives are seeking support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.

Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP, who are likely to have mopped up the votes between them, would have outnumbered the Tories and are likely to have defeated the PM in a Queen's Speech vote, paving the way for a coalition led by Mr Corbyn. "We can still do this", he continued. The party had previously confirmed they were prepared to form a coalition government, as the Independent reports. "Whoever it is, they are going to have to make deals with other political parties, and nearly every other political party that has an MP in the new parliament wants a softer version of Brexit", says French.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip leave after attending Holy Communion at St Andrew's Church in Sonning, Berkshire, England, Sunday, June 11, 2017. The DUP's 10 seats push May to 328, two seats above the threshold for a working majority.

After the election, Corbyn expressed readiness to serve the country in case May stepped down.

British Prime Minister Theresa May risks losing her position to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn following her Conservative Party's poor performance at the just concluded election.

The former shadow chancellor labelled it an "OK result" after Mr Corbyn's party secured a higher-than-expected 262 seats and significantly boosted its vote share.

"We don't really think she has a mandate to now, she's really made a fool of herself and really, quite frankly, she should step aside and let us have a go". Instead, May emerged from Thursday's election having lost her Conservative majority in the House of Commons and forced to try to cobble together a minority government with the help of a party from Northern Ireland.
