UK’s PM Theresa May speech – Live

Following the results from the UK’s general elections, (still) PM Theresa May will give a speech at 9GMT.

May has recently reiterated she will not resign despite Conservatives’ performance at the elections, although plenty of doubts are set to emerge regarding her leadership and ability to carry on with the Brexit negotiations (which were initially scheduled to start later in the month).

At the moment, Conservatives keep 316 seats, Labour 261, the SNP 35 and Liberal Democrats 12.



Key notes

UK election: Conservatives fall short of majority, May's political gamble backfires

Against all odds, and is becoming a familiar pattern in major political events, a catastrophic and unexpected outcome for UK PM Theresa May's Conservatives has materialized.
