An exit poll earlier suggested Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May could fall short of winning a majority in Thursday’s election.

Asked by ITV if there was any circumstance in which the Lib Dems could prop up the Conservatives, Clegg said: “No.”

The Lib Dems had nine seats in British parliament until Thursday’s election. The exit poll projected they would win 14 seats this time.
