The vicar's daughter presented herself as a "strong and stable leader" but is now facing calls to resign after throwing away her party's majority.
Gavin Barwell was named new chief of staff. Instead, the Conservatives lost their majority and now must depend on a small, sectarian Northern Ireland party to hold on to power. Ms.
Corbyn's savvy internet tactics and evangelical rallies boosted the youth and student vote as we saw, for instance, in the constituency of Canterbury - a university dominated town in the normally Conservative county of Kent but which chucked out the Tories for the first time in almost a century. "She's a zombie prime minister". Bohuslav Sobotka said that too much time had already been wasted.
On the doorstep of her official Downing Street residence, May said her government would provide certainty and lead successful Brexit negotiations with the European Union.
The two dominant generations of the grey vote and the youth also behaved unexpectedly. While he was demonized by conservative newspapers, on Facebook Corbyn was trending.

It would mark a significant, unexpected change in the approach to Brexit and may not have the necessary support within the Conservative Party.
Her main opponent - Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, known for his left-wing views - was stumbling from mishap to mishap, unable even to muster solid support from his party's own lawmakers.
