Election in UK a setback for May

It is said a deal has been worked out with Democratic Unionist Party which has won 10 seats to form a coalition government if permitted by the Queen.

The U.K. Independence Party, which won 12.6 percent in the last election, saw its vote share collapse: It earned just 2 percent of the vote and lost its only seat in Westminster.

Meanwhile, the supposed loser, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, savored a surprisingly strong result and basked in the adulation of an energized, youthful base.

A joint poll by BBC, SKY, and ITV news said May's ruling Conservatives would win 314 seats, short of a majority in Britain's 650-seat parliament.

'We need a government that can act, ' EU Budget Commissioner Guenther Oettinger told German broadcaster Deutschlandfunk. Farron said May "should be ashamed" and should resign "if she has an ounce of self respect...she called this election expecting a coronation, and took each and every one of us for granted in the most cynical way possible...she has put the future of the country at risk with arrogance and vanity".
