UK vote a surprise but does not call Brexit into question: French PM

Theresa May

I hope the Conservative Party in Parliament gets behind the Prime Minister, and allows her the political space to negotiate that deal. They couldn't possibly vote for Jeremy Corbyn, the quasi-Marxist, left-wing Labour Party leader who campaigned on high taxes for the rich, heavy spending and deep skepticism toward Britain's traditional defense and foreign policies. But they failed to unseat him, forcing some to quit the party and others to decide against running when May sent parties scrambling by calling an early election.

"I think we've run a great and positive campaign and made a difference", said Dogus.

The final result was announced nearly 24 hours after polls closed. A sober Marxist view of British imperialism, however, would have to take into consideration the limitations of the electoral struggle in a powerful imperialist country whose banks participate in the domination of the world economy and whose nuclear-armed military intervenes in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.

Timothy and Hill have been accused of creating a "toxic" atmosphere in Downing Street.

May said Brexit talks would begin on June 19 as scheduled, the same day the British parliament is due to reconvene. May to "make way" for it to form a government and she also faces criticism over the DUP deal.

This is the first time since the 1990s that Britain has a minority government, in which the governing party can not get measures though Parliament without outside support.

But Leslie said Labour had still lost the election, despite jubilation from some Corbynites.

A party councillor in Ballymena reportedly claimed Hurricane Katrina, which killed more than 1,500 people in the U.S., was God's revenge for New Orleans hosting an annual gay pride event.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, whose party's gains north of the border saved its skin in Westminster, said she had spoken to May and sought a "categoric assurance" that any deal with the DUP would not affect LGBTI rights.

This would complicate European Union negotiations.

Trump offered his warm support to May over the just-concluded parliamentary election, it said.

There was also a big swing in the northern London constituency, or voting district, of Southgate where Labour's Bambos Charalambous won 24,989 votes to oust Conservative David Burrowes by 4,355 votes. We know when they must end.

In the Conservative Party, recriminations were immediate and stinging. But her leadership has been hobbled, and her negotiating power is now much weaker. And if she does so in the next month, she'll set a pretty ignoble record as the shortest-tenured prime minister in almost a century. Allen said she couldn't see May hanging on for "more than six months". Across the country, people voted Labour despite not liking Corbyn.

One DUP lawmaker suggested support for May could come vote by vote, making the job of governing fraught with risk. While he was demonized by conservative newspapers, on Facebook Corbyn was trending. He had won the previous election by a huge margin, with 42.9% of votes to Labour's 24.5%.

On Friday Davidson, who is gay (and on Twitter pointedly mentioned she was "a Protestant Unionist about to marry an Irish Catholic"), said she had told May "there was a number of things that count to me more than party". "This was the first time I voted".

Two months ago, British Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap election. People told pollsters that they were anxious about the future of the National Health Service, that they didnt like Mays flip-flops on elderly care, that they were unnerved by instability unleashed by the Tories. In April, she called an early General Election, confident that Ukip voters would now endorse her “hard Brexit” and her watered-down English Tory populism.

"May stares into the abyss", said The Times' Saturday edition while the Daily Mail led with "Tories Turn On Theresa".
