In more specific terms, then the immediate implication of the British general election to China will depend entirely on how Theresa May is able to weather what is now her biggest challenge - negotiations to agree the terms of the UK's exit from the European Union.

Sen. Bernie Sanders congratulated Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party he leads for what's being called one of the most stunning upsets in United Kingdom political history. "The Prime Minister called the election because she wanted a mandate and the mandate is that she has lost seats", he said in his victory speech, claiming on Twitter earlier that the Labour party had "changed the face of British politics". The Telegraph said senior Conservatives including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, interior minister Amber Rudd and Brexit minister David Davis were taking soundings over whether to replace her.

On Friday, May announced that she would form a new government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party, which was founded by Protestant firebrand Ian Paisley and which in the past has shared power with Sinn Fein, the political wing of the Irish Republican Party, in Northern Ireland.

Because it wasn't just opponents that called for Mrs May to resign - some within her own party, like Anna Soubry, were also very vocal in their criticism. Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka of the Czech Republic told Czech Television that "now it will be necessary to wait for who will form a government and what this government will bring to negotiations over Brexit", Reuters reports. For a General Election ostensibly called because of Brexit, discussions were limited to which leader was trusted to deliver it, rather than what "it" would look like.
