Ovation for Jeremy Corbyn as he returns to House of Commons

It seems that the public's view of Theresa May and the Conservative party has been badly damaged by the election, while Labour and Jeremy Corbyn have gone up in people's estimations.

Maybe a different sort of Labour leader might have done even better - they would probably have been in a more promising starting position.

The unusual circumstances the UK Government is now under, after a lost Tory majority lead to a hung parliament, was cause for some jeers when the newly re-elected Bercow addressed the house.

These new figures will only pile more pressure on May, whose personal credibility is an all-time low following her failure to retain her parliamentary majority in a general election she didn't have to hold.

Having lost a majority in parliament, May is in talks with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to secure the support of its 10 lawmakers to win any kind of vote, including on the pieces of legislation needed to enact Britain's divorce from the EU.

Corbyn, while the loser on paper, proved May wrong.

Has your opinion of Theresa May changed since the election campaign?

However it would be a mistake to treat the political crisis that has engulfed the United Kingdom in isolation. Remember that at the start of the campaign, 150 seats was the sort of line that the betting markets were setting, so to get over 100 more than that is a huge achievement. "For the first time in decades, there is a clear understanding of what the Labour Party stands for". That, however, would risk the ire of Brenda from Bristol as another General Election - which would be the third in two years - would be needed. Now that the election is over, however, her rating is down in the dumps at -34.

And it has never looked so likely that things are falling in to place for him to make the jump from the helm of the opposition to the job he really wants - the job of PM.
