Jeremy Corbyn keeps his eyes on Downing Street

Mrs May had unexpectedly called the snap election seven weeks ago, even though no vote was due until 2020.

"I'm ready for another general election", Corbyn said.

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 survey predicted the Conservatives will get 314 seats and the Labour Party 266. Speaking after being re-elected to his London seat, Corbyn said May should "go. and make way for a government that is truly representative of all the people of this country".

May took a gamble in April by calling for the snap election.

But that gamble did not pay off, as concerns about social programs and security issues replaced Brexit as the main talking points in the United Kingdom.

Mrs May is seeking to rely on the Democratic Unionist Party's 10 MPs to win key votes in Parliament.

Labour performed above all expectations at the ballot box, winning 262 seats.

"I thought surrealism was a Belgian invention", quipped Verhofstadt, a former Belgian prime minister. "Time for everyone to regroup".




Yesterday, the Prime Minister announced that her five most senior ministers will all keep their jobs, despite speculation throughout the election that Phillip Hammond and others would be replaced.

Just after noon (UK time), she was driven to Buckingham Palace to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government - a formality under the British system. She's taking us back to those times. The EU does not want to delay Brexit.

One of the lead European Union negotiators, Guy Verhofstadt, criticized May on Twitter, writing: "Yet another own goal, after Cameron now May, will make already complex negotiations even more complicated".

A major campaign issue centered on Britain's plan to leave the European Union, also called Brexit. She had been executing a political strategy that prevented the Brexit debate from being reopened. It's important to make that clear'. It projected 34 for the Scottish National Party and 14 for the Liberal Democrats. Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the SNP, said the results were "a disaster for Theresa May", the BBC reports.

"We will expect the British government to honour their commitments in respect of the Good Friday Agreement".

The broadcaster said Sturgeon was "disappointed at the SNP losses".

Instead, they lost seats and the majority, and will be forced to form a coalition government with a smaller party.

Organisers who worked on the Sanders campaign provided assistance to Momentum, the leftwing pressure group, in the runup to the election, coaching Labour members on how to canvass voters online and offline.

"We must in my view seek to deliver an open Brexit, not a closed one, which puts our countrys economic growth first", Davidson said.
