Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat

"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.

"The success of the Labour Party winning more seats than expected was because they tapped into anxiety over public spending cuts since 2010, anxiety over the state of National Health Service, and also concerns with youth voters over the amount of student debt and access to United Kingdom housing - two big issues".

The final seat will continue to undergo recounts through Friday evening. "I'm very proud to lead this party".

What is the Democratic Unionist Party?

"What the country needs more than ever is certainty", the Conservative leader said after the shock outcome of Thursday s vote.

When May called the election back in April, she-and many others-assumed a Conservative victory was a done deal. He said voters had rejected her Brexit plan.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the early results showed May had lost her mandate and called for her to resign. The turnout was high.

Labour performed above all expectations at the ballot box, winning 262 seats. On election night, Corbyn led one of the largest swings to Labour since World War II. At the time of writing, there does not seem to be any political desire to revoke Article 50, not least because if it is revoked, in practice it may never be exercised again, and this was confirmed by the prime minister outside 10 Downing Street.

He added that he believes it would be a mistake to fire Mueller, but said the "the basis of his investigation is flim-flam". Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation and is testifying Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

"We need to get started on the negotiations as soon as possible because time is ticking", German Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Roth told Germany's ZDF, according to Reuters.

"May won't be able to make any compromises because she lacks a broad parliamentary majority", he said. And while they gained four seats, they expected their anti-Brexit campaign to net them dozens. Some say her failure means the government must now take a more flexible approach to the divorce, potentially softening the exit terms.

What happens now? A whole lot of things.

No party has emerged with an overall majority meaning the incumbent Conservative Government stays in office until Theresa May either does a deal - most likely with the Democratic Unionists - or goes to the Queen to tender her resignation and that of her administration.

If Corbyn had won seven seats that were narrowly won by the Tories, he would have been in the position May is in now and forming a "progressive alliance" with the smaller parties involved in the election. A key factor in enabling the Conservatives to cling to power, however, may have been Corbyn's alienation of the Jewish vote.

"But you've also got to convince them of your credibility that you can actually move from protesting about a government into being the government".

It did not help Mrs May, who in her previous role as home secretary had overseen cuts in the number of police officers.
