After election results what is the next step for Brexit

Whatever the final election result, Theresa May has not secured the clear mandate that she sought for her version of a hard Brexit.

When she called the election, she declared: "Every vote for the Conservatives will make me stronger when I negotiate for Britain with the prime ministers, presidents and chancellors of the European Union." Well, she is not stronger. She has fewer seats than she started with. As a result, it will now be hard for the government - whatever shape that government will be - to start talking to the EU in nine days time as planned without rethinking its strategy.
