Corbyn vows to force May to resign 'within a matter of days'

Corbyn vows to force May to resign 'within a matter of 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.

May called for the election last April, saying she hoped to expand her parliamentary majority.

Conservative member of parliament Anna Soubry was the first in the party to disavow May in public, calling on the prime minister to "consider her position".

Results will come in over the next few hours for all 650 seats in the House of Commons.

In the short span that Theresa May was at the helm after her predecessor David Cameron had quit office taking responsibility for the adverse European Union membership vote, there were terror incidents that shook Britain and worsened the security environment. Host David Brancaccio spoke to Stephen Beard, Marketplace's London bureau chief, about it.

The following is an edited transcript of their conversation.

The Czech prime minister said Friday that Britain should not be granted any extension on the two-year deadline for the Brexit talks.

Stephen Beard: No, indeed.

Though The Guardian reports that there are fears in the EU Parliament that the "hung parliament and weak prime minister are a "disaster" that threaten negotiations", it seems likely that Brexit will go ahead regardless. But she's been humiliated and massively weakened.

Referring to the "strong relationship" she had with the DUP, but giving little detail of how their arrangement might work, she said the government would "guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks" that begin in just 10 days' time. It's a mess. It's a pig's breakfast!

"We are in not quite a political stalemate, but we are in a situation of turmoil just when the Conservative said they wanted stability because of the Brexit debates and Brexit arguments", he added. It could mean that the United Kingdom would have to remain in the customs union.

The result comes just weeks before Britain faces hard negotiations over terms for leaving the EU. Instead, they lost seats and the majority, and will be forced to form a coalition government with a smaller party. There's the "hard Brexit" and the "soft Brexit".

Beard: Well, not entirely.

"I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility", Corbyn said, predicting that there could be another election within months. So it's not off the agenda as far as they're concerned.

"We want to negotiate quickly, we want to stick to the time plan, and so at this point I don't think there is anything to suggest these negotiations can not start as was agreed".
