UK Elections : PM defies Corbyn's call to quit and vows to stay on for the sake of 'stability' after public punishes her for calling unnecessary election, leaving the UK heading for HUNG Parliament

SHARE:

A shaky Theresa May vowed to fight on today despite suffering catastrophic losses as her election gamble humiliatingly backfired.

As the Tories' Commons majority was brutally stripped away by voters, Jeremy Corbyn ridiculed Mrs May for calling the contest three years early in a bid to capitalise on sky-high poll ratings.

But an ashen-faced Prime Minister claimed her party was still on track to have the most MPs and insisted the country needed a 'period of stability'. 'It is incumbent on us to ensure that we have that,' she said.

In an unbelievable turnaround, the odds on Mr Corbyn becoming the next PM have been slashed, while Mrs May is already being savaged by her own party. Former chancellor George Osborne lambasted her campaign performance as 'wooden' and her manifesto as a disaster, making clear he did not believe she could survive for long. Voters appeared to be punishing her for calling the ballot unnecessarily.

The Conservative showing could have been even worse but for big gains from the SNP in Scotland, with their leader north of the border, Ruth Davidson, inspiring a 10-seat surge that unseated former First Minister Alex Salmond in Gordon and Westminster leader Angus Robertson in Moray.

In a speech after being reelected in Islington North this morning, Mr Corbyn said Mrs May had wanted a mandate but been given a devastating verdict by voters. 'That is enough to go, actually, and make way for another government,' he demanded. 'Politics is not going back into the box where it was before.'

But speaking at her own count in Maidenhead, a clearly shaken Mrs May said: 'At this time, more than anything, the country needs a period of stability.'



Despite Tory hopes they would be the biggest winners from a massive Ukip collapse, the exit poll at 10pm last night indicated Labour had hoovered up a big chunk of the vote. It said the Conservatives were on track to lose 16 seats, leaving them on 314 and well short of a majority - while Labour was up from 232 to 266.

However, things quickly looked even more grim for Mrs May, with Education Secretary Justine Greening barely clinging on in Putney and Treasury minister Jane Ellison losing Battersea amid a London meltdown.

Cabinet Office minister Ben Gummer has been defeated in Ipswich, and there has also been a miserable showing in Wales, while Home Secretary Amber Rudd could fall with a recount under way in her Hastings seat. Canterbury - which has been Tory for a century - also went to Mr Corbyn's party.

The BBC is currently forecasting that the Tories could end up with 318 seats to Labour's 267, just about enough for a workable majority, but many are expecting the final tally to be lower.

There are fears that a hung parliament could throw Britain into chaos barely a week before negotiations with the EU are due to get under way. Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said he was ready to return to politics, warning that he feared a second referendum on Brexit.
