Shocking Labour Win Shakes Up British Jews

039;Another general election will take place in three months time and Labour will hammer the Tories', says Corbyn supporter

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would form a government backed by a small Northern Irish party after her Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority in an election days before launching talks on Britain's European Union departure.

Mrs May's party lost ground to Jeremy Corbyn's Labour but said the Tories are still the largest party with 318 seats and 42.2% of the vote. Lo and behold, the snap election that May called two months ago has now denied her Conservative Party a majority, resulting in a hung parliament.

May returned to Downing Street where, looking calm and fresh after a hard night, announced that she planned to form a government to "lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country". "Over the next five years build a country in which no one and no community is left behind, a country in which prosperity and opportunity are shared across this United Kingdom".

Prime Minister Theresa May has said she will form a government with the support of the Democratic Unionist party, which won 10 seats.

Labour's brief administration produced little in the way of domestic policy, and when leader Ramsay MacDonald called another election in October 1924, demanding a mandate to form a real socialist government, his party was roundly defeated in a Conservative landslide. Numerous 650 seats in the House of Commons were retained by their previous occupants, but dozens of seats swung, mostly Conservative seats which went to the rival Labour Party.

With the DUP providing the Conservatives a narrow, but crucial, majority in Parliament, it could have an outsized influence.

"It's an issue very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurances from the prime minister on, and I received (them)", said Davidson, who is engaged to be married to her female partner.

With the complex talks on the divorce from the European Union due to start in 10 days, it was unclear what their direction would now be and if the so-called "Hard Brexit" taking Britain out of a single market could still be pursued.

The DUP is the largest unionist political party in Northern Ireland, now led by Arlene Foster.

Labour won 262 seats in Thursday's general election, up from the 232 secured by Ed Miliband in 2015, but the Conservatives remain the largest party in parliament.

Corbyn's Labour Party officially backs Brexit.

Rachel Sheard, who was casting her vote near the site of Saturday's attack in London, said the election had not gone as expected - and that it certainly wasn't about Brexit.

In his resignation speech, he promised that the party would continue to be "the guard dogs of Brexit", though how they planned to do that remains unclear. But the discussion on Twitter, as well as the parallels to what the Labour Party did overseas, could eventually mean something for a Democratic Party that's still doing some soul-searching in the early days of the Trump administration.

"I think people will interpret membership of the single-market as not respecting [the result of] that referendum", McDonnell told ITV's political editor Robert Peston on Sunday 11 June.

Asked if the book's consistency was "strong and stable, or a bit weak and wobbly", Goodwin didn't immediately respond - because he had his mouth full.

Even though Mrs May has managed to hang on to her job after the severe battering at the polls, the question is: for how long more? Her Conservative Party had a comfortable lead in the polls at that time. "It's a shame, because I think she would've done well", said a 74-year-old woman who declined to give her name.

Some suggested the prime minister would resign, while others contemplated yet another election later in the year. Speaking after the outcome became clear, May acknowledged that the result was a disappointment.
