Jeremy Corbyn has called on Theresa May to resign.
Ms May should “go and make way for a government that is truly representative of this country”, the Labour leader said at his election count. The exit poll and recent results suggest that no party will win a majority in parliament, despite Ms May having called the campaign in an attempt to strengthen her position.
“The prime minister called the election because she wanted a mandate,” he said. “Well the mandate she’s got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence. I would have thought that is enough for her to go actually.”
Accepting victory after holding Islington North with his biggest ever majority, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Politics has changed. Politics isn’t going back into the box where it was before. People have said they have had quite enough of austerity politics.”
Just a couple of minutes after Mr Corbyn made the call, Ms May arrived at her own election count. Immediately, journalists asked whether the prime minister would be resigning.
