General Election results 2017

If those results hold up, it will be a remarkable turnaround for the Conservatives who had a 20-point lead in the opinion polls when Ms.

Snap elections have a habit of rebounding on those who call them.

The EU wants those to begin on June 19, but they could be delayed if an inconclusive election leads to political turmoil.

"My only plea would be to all MPs. from all parties, is this: that we will not pick our way through the very hard times that our country faces if in the next parliament MPs of all parties simply seek to amplify what divides them". The fallout was already being felt around the world with the value of sterling falling as much as 2 per cent after the exit poll came out.

"This has been a disaster for Ms".

Writing exclusively for FE Week, David Hughes, the chief executive of the Association of Colleges, said he was "proud" of the work that colleges across the country have done to "encourage voter registration as well as running hustings and debates to engage students in politics".

"The prime minister called the election because she wanted a mandate", Corbyn said after winning re-election to his north London district. "Every vote for me and my team will strengthen my hand [during] Brexit negotiations", she said last month.

Speaking outside 10 Downing St., May scarcely acknowledged the election's disastrous outcome, promising to form "a government that can provide certainty".

In calling the election, Theresa May was seeking an endorsement of her plans for Brexit and of her personal abilities to pursue those plans successfully.

As the dust settles, one issue will dominate investors' concerns above all: whether Britain is more or less likely to retain privileged access to the EU's single market, the destination for most of the country's exports. He noted that it will only take a handful of MPs to reject anything Ms.

Britain's Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn gestures as he arrives for the declaration at his constituency in London, Friday, June 9, 2017.

That would make the course of Brexit even harder to predict.

Artemis Racing reaches America's Cup challenger finals
Barker helmed the fifth and final race for Team New Zealand , when it successfully defended the America's Cup in Auckland in 2000. Barker spoke of his pride of having lead a team that brought Japan back into the America's Cup for the first time since 2000.

EU Council President Donald Tusk told Britain in a Tweet: "Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations".

European leaders grappled with the question: what next?

However, the election result creates huge uncertainty about the UK's capacity even to engage in negotiations with the European Union; it creates uncertainty over the clarity and direction of domestic energy policy, both main parties having expressed populist interventionist tendencies in the campaign; and uncertainty over the UK's general macroeconomic direction. "It's a vote for a "soft leave" agenda".

Answer: It's an unusual situation in which no political party wins more than half of the 650 seats in the House of Commons. May at even more of a disadvantage.

"The focus on the industrial strategy throughout the general election campaign has been disappointing". May, 60, fumbled the announcement of a key social-policy measure for older people, upsetting seniors and forcing her to make a hasty backtrack. Then, he ran a disciplined, coherent campaign despite a few miscues, and deftly capitalized on May's mistakes.

Mr Corbyn said: "Politics has changed".

Meanwhile, Mr. Corbyn, 68, struck a chord with his promise to tax the rich, increase spending on health care and nationalize services such as the railways and the post office.

United Kingdom polls today opened with about 46 million eligible voters expected to cast their ballot to choose between Prime Minister Theresa May and Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn under the looming shadow of the two deadly terror attacks that recently rocked the country.

It's unclear how long Ms. May will be able to fend off critics from within her own party, given the disastrous campaign and her weak performance.

"What the country needs now more than ever is certainty". But analysts say a move like that in the short term would threaten the stability of Conservative Party and hinder its efforts in forming a government.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said Sturgeon should take the prospect of a new independence referendum off the table.

Britain held its election yesterday, and she failed on both counts.
