The ruling Conservative party of Great Britain, led by the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May lost more than 1,300 seats in the regional elections in the country.
The Tories lost control over 49 local councils out of 248. This is the worst result since 1995. In turn, labor also lost 86 seats and 6 councils.
According to May and the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbin, similar results may be the consequence of an impasse in a situation with “Brexit.”
The Prime Minister also called the result difficult for his faction. It is noted that during the conference of conservatives in Wales, one of those present shouted at her: “Why don’t you resign? We don’t need you.”
On April 12, it was reported that the losses of the leading British companies from leaving the European Union could amount to 348 million pounds (455 million dollars) if “Brexit” takes place without a deal with Brussels. Among them — Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC Bank and pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca.
