Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat

But Tory voters thought their party would do a better job of negotiating Brexit and believed Theresa May would be the best Prime Minister.

The Tories have said they will form a government with the support of the DUP.

"I think if we'd had a large Conservative majority like all the polling was pointing to, then Theresa May could've pushed through her version of Brexit which is outside the single market, outside the customs union with tight control over migration, and not giving much money into the EU pot in terms of paying for access", explains French. The result is also perhaps the start of the revival of the Labour Party. Labour surpassed expectations by winning 262. The DUP is a socially conservative group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and had links to Protestant paramilitary groups during Ireland's sectarian "Troubles".

A deal between the government and the DUP could also unsettle the precarious balance between Northern Ireland's British loyalist and Irish nationalist parties, whose power-sharing administration in Belfast collapsed earlier this year.

He plans to use the Queen's Speech as his first opportunity to topple the floundering PM.

'There's a possibility of voting the Queen's Speech down and we're going to push that all the way'.

"I can still be Prime Minister". A party spokesman confirmed the resignation of Hill, a combative character who one ex-colleague said had helped create "toxic" atmosphere at the heart of government.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip leave after attending Holy Communion at St Andrew's Church in Sonning, Berkshire, England, Sunday, June 11, 2017.

The DUP won 10 seats, meaning that they will have 10 MPs representing them in Parliament.

The results of the UK's general election are in. but there wasn't a clear victor.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap election for Parliament almost three years early so that the United Kingdom would have "strong and stable" leadership to negotiate the terms of "Brexit", its withdrawal from the European Union approved by voters in a referendum nearly a year ago.

"It is quite possible there will be an election later this year or early next year and that might be a good thing because we can not go on with a period of great instability", Corbyn told the BBC.

The election result saw Mrs May scramble to form a minority government to have any kind of Commons majority.

And 57 per cent of those who backed Jeremy Corbyn's party said they made their decision in the last month - indicating the poorly regarded Conservative campaign was a factor in their decision.
