Jeremy Corbyn vows to vote down Queen's Speech to topple Theresa May

It may well be able to form a minority government in the coming days and weeks, but the prime minister's ability to cling to the keys of Number 10 Downing Street is very much in doubt, and her stated goal of unifying the country behind her ahead of the upcoming Brexit negotiations with European Union leaders is utterly out of reach. "I would have thought that's enough to go." - main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

With 636 of 650 seats in the House of Commons declared, the Conservatives had 310 to the Labour Party's 258. Though the electorate appears to still favor some form of Brexit, the results of Thursday's vote ultimately undermine May as she prepares to take on hardened European Union negotiators in Brussels.

May met with the Queen of England Friday morning, giving a statement saying that, with the support of the Northern Irish party, she will form her own government.

May had spent the campaign denouncing Corbyn as the weak leader of a spendthrift party that would crash Britain's economy and flounder in Brexit talks, while she would provide "strong and stable leadership" to clinch a good deal for Britain. In fact, without seriously analyzing the results, the media have all but joined Labour politicians in calling for British Prime Minister Teresa May to resign.

May put on a fearless face after Thursday's vote, expressing sorrow for the MPs who lost their seats but refusing to acknowledge how her election gamble backfired.

Dogus didn't go as far as some Labour candidates who distanced themselves from Corbyn - one even wrote to reassure voters that she understood their misgivings about Corbyn, who the Conservatives bet would be "toxic" to Britons due to his associations with militant groups. We asked two experts to offer their insights on what Americans should make of the election and its results.

Number 10 had earlier said: "We can confirm that the Democratic Unionist Party have agreed to the principles of an outline agreement to support the Conservative Government on a confidence and supply basis when Parliament returns next week". Before the election was called, May's Conservatives already held a slight majority - 330 seats.

In the big book of political blunders, Theresa May's decision to hold a snap election to solidify her Brexit mandate will rank among the most memorable - and the most unnecessary.

In early April, the NS produced a cover which informed us "The Labour Party has collapsed".

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said Sturgeon should take the prospect of a new independence referendum off the table.

But, unlike during the election campaign, when she repeatedly referred to the talks starting on 19 June, she wasn't specific about the date, suggesting it might slip.

Apart from Gove and her close ally Damian Green, promoted to Cabinet Office minister to oversee the day-to-day running of the government, May confirmed most of the ministers from her previous cabinet.

"People have spoken loud and clear and they've said we do not want an extreme Brexit", Gina Miller, the campaigner who took the government to the Supreme Court over giving Parliament a voice on Brexit told the BBC.

Added to the kamikaze manifesto, the Conservatives, and the political/media Establishment in general, totally underestimated Jeremy Corbyn and the cross-generational appeal of his populist left-wing policies at a time when millions of Britain have been reeling from the effects and falling real wages.

A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a pop concert in Manchester on May 22, killing 22 people.

Eight people were killed near London Bridge on Saturday when three men drove a van into pedestrians and then stabbed revelers in an area filled with bars and restaurants.

If May can get through this vote with the help of the DUP she can continue in government.
