Trump Offers 'Support' To May After Polls Setback


Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn went on the offensive in an interview with the Daily Mirror on Saturday, vowing to oust Prime Minister Theresa May of the Conservatives "within a matter of days". May now risks more opposition to her Brexit plans from inside and outside her party, though a party source said the leading the Conservatives was seen as too much of a poisoned chalice for her to face an immediate challenge.

However, what we're facing now because of this election result is potentially a period of pretty damaging paralysis, because Theresa May hasn't got a stonking great majority in Parliament.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit Secretary David Davis have all been kept on in their roles. The result is also perhaps the start of the revival of the Labour Party.

Questions should be asked about how the party can win a majority, he added.

US President Donald Trump has told British Prime Minister Theresa May that he looks forward to working with her in strengthening bilateral ties after she made a decision to form a minority government following snap polls, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

The Protestant unionist party also had links with outlawed paramilitary groups during the years of Northern Ireland's "Troubles".

But her campaign unravelled after a policy U-turn on care for the elderly, while Mr Corbyn's old-school socialist platform and more impassioned campaigning style won wider support than anyone had foreseen.

"We were absolutely buzzing", said one of the party campaigners who was with others gathered around a TV at the Labour party headquarters in Victoria Street, London, as quoted by The Guardian on Friday.

The Scottish National Party lost more than 20 seats to knock the party down to 35 seats, according to the BBC.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said May should resign.

May's Conservative party is still the largest party in Parliament, but no longer has enough seats to govern alone, after key seats fell to the Labour Party. She claims that this government will get the country through the Brexit talks and will lead Britain forward. It does not care about domestic United Kingdom politics, save to the extent that it would prefer a strong and stable government that will not be overruled by its parliament, or overly influenced by other stakeholders who do not like the compromises that are required to be made.

It would mark a significant, unexpected change in the approach to Brexit and may not have the necessary support within the Conservative Party.

Theresa May clung to her job as Prime Minister only by arranging a coalition with the ten members of Northern Ireland's Democratic Union Party, giving her a bare three-vote majority in the 650-vote House of Commons.
