Theresa May is short of a majority

LONDON, June 8 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives will fail to win a parliamentary majority in Britain's election, according to an exit poll on Thursday, a shock result that would plunge the country into political turmoil and could delay Brexit talks.
The exit poll predicted the Conservatives would win 314 seats in the 650-member parliament and the opposition Labour Party 266, meaning no clear winner and a "hung parliament."
The BBC reported that 76 seats appeared too close to call.
Until the final results become clear, it is hard to predict whether May has a chance of surviving as prime minister and who might end up leading the next government and steering Britain into divorce talks with the European Union.
