Theresa May's gamble didn't pay off

The British election results are in, and while the Tories may remain the largest party in the House of Commons, they fell way short of the goal they hoped for. Yet May herself has decided to press on, forming a government with a Northern Ireland political movement:
British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would form a government backed by a small Northern Irish party after her Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority in an election days before launching talks on Britain's EU departure.

A stony-faced May, speaking on the doorstep of her official Downing Street residence, said on Friday the government would provide certainty and lead Britain in talks with the European Union to secure a successful Brexit deal.

But with her authority diminished, May risks facing more opposition to her Brexit plans from both inside and outside her Conservative Party, and some colleagues may be lining up to replace her.

"She's staying, for now," a party source told Reuters.
Is that a good idea? Surely the Tories have somebody better than her? Because her exact record on confronting the situation with jihadists now plaguing the UK isn't very good.

The good news is that, due to Labour's Jeremy Corbyn, the Jewish vote went more for the Conservative party this time, though I wouldn't be shocked if the Satmar clannists who live in Britain had little or no problem with with Labour's losers.

Interestingly, a writer for Newsweek says May is channeling "loser Hillary Clinton":
“It’s almost as if Theresa May looked at Hillary’s campaign and said let’s do that,” wrote Robert Shrimsley of the Financial Times, referring to Hillary Clinton’s defeat by Trump.
How about that, they're now admitting Clinton's campaign was a disaster. What took them so long?

The Australian says the UK now faces a weak minority rule. Obviously, that's not good, but May has to shoulder some blame for not showing more guts on some key issues.
