LONDON - 9 June 2017: Prime Minister Theresa May faced calls to quit on Friday after her election gamble to win a stronger mandate backfired as she lost her parliamentary majority, throwing British politics into turmoil and potentially disrupting Brexit egotiations.

Lib Dems 12
SNP 35
Greens 1
UKIP 0
DUP 10
