UK media reacts to political deadlock
Media coverage across the U.K. has been unanimous: Prime Minister Theresa May has gambled on her government’s future and it has badly backfired.
The Conservative leader called the snap election to strengthen her parliamentary presence ahead of tough negotiations to take the country out of the European Union. However, this aim has failed with the results now officially confirming that no party has gained a majority in the election.
Despite a bruising election result for her Conservative party, May will seek permission from the Queen to form a new government on Friday, according to a spokesperson from her office.
