Why Did British People Punish Theresa May During Parliamentary Election?

During the recent parliamentary election in the UK, the British Conservatives failed to gain public support required to get the absolute majority in the British parliament. Now, the international expert community is discussing the reasons why Theresa May failed on her expectations.








Market Leader reports that prime Minister Theresa May has just got the approval from Queen Elizabeth II to form a new UK government, even though the Conservatives failed to get the majority during the recent parliamentary election. Initially, the early election was planned by Theresa May to gain the so-called absolute majority in the parliament and consolidate the party in advance of the forthcoming Brexit talks.
Judging by the existing preconditions, the Brexit talks are likely to be exceptionally difficult. It’s interesting to note that as of April 18 (the day the early election was announced), various surveys indicated an easy victory by the Conservatives. However, this didn’t happen. On the contrary, the Conservatives lost the majority in the House of Commons while the party split over the necessity of Theresa May resigning.
At the same time, the Labor Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn, who was labeled as “politician non-elect” by some experts, eventually managed to gain 29 extra seats in the UK parliament.


According to political expert Adrian Campbell, the results of the recent parliamentary election in the United Kingdom prove that it’s wrong to completely write off any political force. For example, not so long ago, they used to think that the Labor Party had been dead in Scotland over the past few years. The same held true for the Conservatives. However, the 2 political forces, once 100% underdogs, are now back into the big political game in the UK.
Due to excessive self-confidence, the ruling political force failed to take into account the Labor Party, which is why they made some mistakes, which could have been avoided, should they have treated Corbyn as a more serious political opponent.
For example, during the pre-election campaign, Theresa May refused to participate in the debates while staying beyond this clash and wanting to turn the election in some kind of coronation, which is something that distracts the electorate. At the same time, the election results show that the Labor Party is not as weak as one might think. So, once again, the Conservatives are now paying for being reluctant to perceive the Labor Party as a serious political force. The Conservatives believed that they are the only real political force in the UK, and that’s why they have to pay for this illusion now.
