Theresa May, the current Prime Minister and head of the Conservative Party thought that she could turn a small majority in the parliament into a huge majority by going back on months long promises of NOT having an election and called a surprise election in the UK just two years after the previous one. The result was that she LOST a number of seats, lost the majority in the Parliament and now has to enter a coalition of forms with another party.
Most would agree that this is a SERIOUS screw up, so sizeable that most other self-respecting politicians would hand in their resignation. Not so Theresa May. To pretend that all is good after such a huge error of assessment is quite astonishing. Odd!!!
