In this instant that other party is the DUP, which will give the coalition 328 seats in Parliament based on 50.4% of the vote. But as anyone can tell, this margin is so slight that an alliance on almost every issue will be required.
Of course, I am primarily referring to Brexit, which as a result of this thin margin will surely be hotly contested by a counter-coalition consisting of, I assume, Labor with perhaps the Scottish National Party, who are both patently anti-Brexit.
However, even though she is a Conservative, and I generally appreciate right-wing fiscal policy, I am likewise tepid on May. She has proved herself to be soft on Brexit, soft on terror, and hard on increasing Britain's surveillance state and internet monitoring campaigns. The Tories have contested that this policy will diminish Jihadist influence, but I fear that the only thing they will crush with this tact will be personal opinion and public debate - reinforcing conformity and political correctness. I think we can all safely assume that some of these same objections are what led to this election debacle.
