UK election: Theresa May 's party 'to fall short of majority'

British Prime Minister Theresa May

May has won her Maidenhead seat in south-east England with 37,780 votes. The exit polls suggested that her ruling Conservatives fell short of the 326 seats needed to win a majority in Britain’s 650-seat Parliament.

As the country awaited results early, May said Britain needed a "period of stability".

Community tensions are being dealt with very differently in the UK and France, writes Paris Gourtsoyannis

It isn’t hard to see why Theresa May’s announcement of an ‘equality audit’ at the weekend has been greeted with some scepticism.

The rhetoric sounds unfamiliar being spoken by a Conservative Prime Minister, even one who pledged on the steps of Downing Street to root out the “burning injustices” of race discrimination and poor educational attainment among the white working class.
