Bernie Sanders Congratulates Jeremy Corbyn On UK Election Gains

Bernie Sanders Congratulates Jeremy Corbyn On UK Election Gains

She said the government would start Brexit negotiations with the European Union as scheduled in 10 days.

"The net effect of these conflicting pressures is likely to be the search for a pragmatic deal with the European Union that can pass the threshold of a significant majority across the whole parliament and not just in the Conservative Party", added Niblett.

The development is an embarrassing turn for the British Prime Minister, who called the vote three years earlier than required, in a bid to give her a strong position in Brexit negotiations.

A spokesman for Mrs Merkel had previously refused to be drawn on the issue out of "politeness and respect" while the process of forming a new United Kingdom government was under way. Mr Corbyn took advantage by agreeing to a debate at the last minute - leaving her with a Hobson's choice of either looking too scared to join him or as though she was responding to his instructions. The Labour Party gained 32 seats, jumping from 229 to 261, setting back May and the Conservative Party. The BBC reports that the Tories lost 12, while Labour-the party of Corbyn-gained 29. But few believe she can hang on for more than a few months. At the same time, pro-Europe Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said she wanted to be involved in "looking again" at Britain's aims for Brexit.

"Now, of course, if she's [May] got to be constantly making deals throughout this parliament, or indeed if she falls and there's a lot of negotiations or a lot of discussion as to whether she'll be leading this Conservative minority government".

Jeremy Corbyn (right), leader of Britain's Labor Party, called for Prime Minister Theresa May's resignation Friday, saying Thursday's vote was a rejec.

Freer, a Conservative MP who was able to retain his seat, told The Jewish Chronicle that it was the Labour's anti-Semitic reputation that may have helped his return to Parliament.

But May's hold on power remained tenuous today as she tried to finalize a deal with a small Northern Irish party to prop up her minority government.

"The British need to negotiate their exit but with a weak negotiating partner, there is a danger that the talks are bad for both parties", he told German radio.

The election had been classified as a "Brexit election" and the result is being seen as giving hope to the 48 per cent who had voted to remain in the European Union in the June 2016 referendum and a rejection of May's so-called "hard Brexit" stance. Former Conservative cabinet minister Owen Paterson, asked about her future, said: "Let's see how it pans out".

May said that "I want to reflect on the election and why it did not deliver the result I hoped for".

"The Conservatives have not yet broken the British system of democracy, but through their hubris and incompetence they have managed to make a mockery of it", it said in an editorial.

"As we are the party who won most seats and most votes, we are the only party that is in a position to form a government that can do that".
