Hung Parliament: DUP to the Rescue? Tail Wags Dog?

The Tories are in shock over a Hung Parliament.

Lack of clear winner raises questions about Brexit and prime minister Theresa May’s future.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn calls for May to resign, but isn’t that like the tail wagging the dog?

Jeremy Corbyn said the face of British politics has changed and called on Theresa May to resign after her snap general election left Britain with a hung Parliament 11 days before Brexit talks begin.

Speaking as he was returned as MP for Islington North, the Labour leader declared: “Politics has changed. Politics isn’t going back into the box where it was before. What’s happened is people have said they’ve had quite enough of austerity politics.”

The former chancellor George Osborne described it as a “catastrophic” result while another Conservative MP said: “She needs to go.”

A minister admitted there would be “fury” within the party among those who did not believe an election was necessary.

A difficult night for the SNP delivered one of the biggest scalps, with the party’s Westminster leader, Angus Robertson, losing his seat in Moray.

The former Lib Dem leader and deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, spoke out about the need for the government to be sensitive about huge societal divisions as he was defeated by Labour in Sheffield Hallam.

Holding on to his seat with a big majority, the Labour deputy leader, Tom Watson, said. “It looks likely to be a very bad result for Theresa May. She said: ‘It is a fact that if we lose just six seats, we will lose our majority and Jeremy Corbyn will become prime minister.’ We do not yet know the final result, but we intend to hold her to that.”

What Happens Next?

The final results are still not in, but Labour has no chance of winning, and reportedly the conservatives have no chance of an outright majority.

Conservatives will have a shot at putting together a coalition, but party leadership is in doubt. Should Theresa May stand down, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, and Brexit Secretary David Davis are obvious possibilities. The UK politics reporter for Bloomberg also mentions Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and Defence Secretary Michael Fallon.

Theresa May will give a speech at 10:00 AM London time. Until then, and possibly even after then, speculation and confusion are the names of the game.

I suspect May will hang on, at least for a while. Then politicians do what they do, stay on and on until they are voted out.
