Election 2017: hung Parliament has created 'constitutional crisis' ahead of Brexit negotiations, says PR guru

No party won an election majority in the vote, creating a hung Parliament

Friday, June 9, 2017

A leading PR guru has claimed the result of the general election has created a "constitutional crisis" with Brexit negotations due to start. 

No party has won a majority to form a government, Theresa May's bid to secure a majority has backfired, and with Brexit negotiations just around the corner, the country has been left in political limbo. 

Jo Tanner, a political PR guru, said the situation is entirely unprecedented in an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer.

She said: "We’re in the middle of a constitutional crisis because we’ve had coalitions before, but never one with the Brexit talks about to take off and a leader unable to command the support of her own party.

"The knives are out, the witchhunt to take the fall has started. We’ve never seen the likes of this.

"The reality is, not only is there a discussion on forming a government, but also a significant shoring up of support from leading party officials.

"You have not seen senior Tory figures out and about because everyone is trying to work out what is going to happen. No one has a clue."
