Prime Minister Theresa May was close to the scene, but she soon had to be “rushed away under heavy police guard” as protesters chanted “May must go!” and “Shame on you!” Reuters reported.     Continue reading

UK election 2017: Conservatives lose majority – BBC News Report

Britain’s Conservatives have lost their majority in a snap general election that has resulted in a hung parliament.

With just a handful of seats left to declare, Thursday’s poll shows gains for the opposition Labour Party.

This is seen as a humiliation for PM Minister Theresa May, who chose to call the election to try to strengthen her hand in talks with the EU on Brexit.
