Britain's Brexit minister says May not a 'dead woman walking'

May called the election with the aim of winning an enhanced mandate for her approach to Brexit, which means leaving the single market, the customs union and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

If May must bear the blame for her party's defeat, Jeremy Corbyn can claim the credit for a remarkable result for the Labour Party, which confounded expectations by gaining seats and vote share.

But May, facing scorn for running a lackluster campaign, was determined to hang on. "And she will certainly get it from me", Johnson wrote in a column for mass-circulation newspaper The Sun. The DUP declined to comment.

The Conservative Party left the EPP in 2009 amid concerns about accelerated European Union political integration. "The worries are unnecessary and they shouldn't have them but we want to make sure they are dealt with as quickly as possible".

Asked if he was now accepting Brussels' timetable, as set out by chief negotiator Michel Barnier, Mr Davis said: "What we have said is we will start down this process but I will have some discussions with Mr Barnier about how we progress to the wider thing of the trade area". The Scottish National Party (SNP) has 35 seats while Liberal Democrats (LD) and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) have won 12 and 10 seats, respectively.

With the two-year clock on Brexit ticking since March, when a letter from May formally started proceedings, Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would prompt only further instability. "It is not only about the United Kingdom, but also about the future of Europe".

But there was little sympathy from some other Europeans.

Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, added that if the Conservative Party focuses on attacking Brussels and the European Union, "they will just get deeper in self-inflicted trouble".

Election 2017: the most SHOCKING result in recent history?

The pound hit an eight-week low against the dollar and its lowest levels in seven months versus the euro.

But until a government emerges in London, it is unclear how the talks can start.

"I don't think we should read these results as calling into question the stance on Brexit which was clearly expressed by the British people", he added.

British PM Theresa May had unexpectedly called the snap election seven weeks ago, even though no vote was due until 2020. At that point, polls predicted she would massively increase the slim majority she had inherited from Cameron. Running a country is more hard and she's formidably good at that.

Her political career is over, her authority as prime minister destroyed, and it can be only a matter of time before she steps down. She sought to deflect pressure onto Corbyn, arguing he had a weak record on security matters.

Labour will not have the numbers to form a government in alliance with other opposition parties, but Corbyn's position as leader is more secure than it has been since he was first elected.

Analysis suggested Labour had benefited from a strong turnout among young voters.

May formed her cabinet despite failing to win a majority in Thursday's parliamentary election, when her Conservatives won 318 House of Commons seats.
