Is the UK in Dis-May?

Professor Tim Bale, Queen Mary, University of London

19-Jun-17 18:00

Is the UK in Dis-May?

The results from the UK election was a surprising one. Many polls had predicted that Theresa May and her Conservative party would win by a landslide and the other major party, Labour, would be wiped out. The opposite happened. The Conservatives lost their majority and now the UK has a hung parliament. How stable is the government, especially now that they enter the Brexit negotiations with a weaker mandate? We speak to Professor Tim Bale, professor of politics at Queen Mary, University of London to find out the reasons why this was the result, what it means for Brexit negotiations, and why pollsters got it wrong again.
