Theresa May is facing a serious backlash over her under-performing election campaign, after both exit polls and early returns have suggested that her snap election gamble failed to pay off.
The Conservatives are set to remain the largest party, but while losing the overall majority.
Estimates indicate that the Tories will win around 314 seats and Labour around 266.
That estimate suggests that Britain is heading for a hung parliament, with Conservatives about to be 12 seats short of the 326 they need for an absolute majority.
May is taking heat from the establishment that feels similar to what President Trump is going through in America, with rhetoric beginning at fever-pitch and soon going over the top.
“This is bad, it’s worse than bad. Her advisers should walk out of the door now never to return,” said one campaign official.
