British PM Theresa May's political career hangs in balance as the election results pour in from across the UK today.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who was expected to lose badly has made a huge comeback strengthing his claim over his party. Labour's great show has clearly shocked Conservative PM Theresa May who had confidently declared her intention to go to the polls seven weeks ago.
The Conservative party won most seats in Thursday's general election but lost its parliamentary majority.
