Two things keeping May in place: 1. Tory fear of early election. 2. Tory fear of something worse.

Jeremy Corbyn has prepared the electoral map to finish off the Tories,

http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/june2017/2017/06/jeremy-corbyn-has-prepared-electoral-map-finish-tories

Another significant ramification of the results is the SNP have no safe seats left which makes a Labour majority viable next time.

Was the election a reminder that it's not just delivering Brexit that matters but dealing w/ causes of the vote too?

The generational divide in Britain is stark. The short term favours Tories, but the long term favours Labour....
