Brexit is under threat following the election
Andrew Freris, CEO of Ecognosis Advisory, said “Brexit will be dead” as he warned Mrs May’s election gamble will lead to her inevitable downfall.
He said: "Brexit is dead. Within six months, Theresa May will be out. She's as popular as the girl that brought a ham sandwich to a bat mitzvah.
"We're not going to have a soft or a hard Brexit. We won't have a Brexit at all."

Fears Britain’s exit from the bloc will crumble come as David Davis was forced to concede that Britain will adhere to European Union demands not to discuss a free trade deal before the divorce bill is settled.
Mr Davis also said formal talks on Britain's exit from the EU may not begin on June 19 as that is the same date the government is due to set out its policy programme for the new parliament.
It comes as Theresa May desperately clings on to power following last week’s election defeat, where she lost her Commons majority.

May aims to enter an alliance with the DUP
The Prime Minister is attempting to set up a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), who are also calling for a ‘soft’ Brexit, which could undermine the nation’s hand in talks.
But Matt Beech, director of the Centre for British Politics at the University of Hull, said it doesn’t mean the EU will have the upper hand in negotiations.
Theresa May has vowed to get on with Brexit
He told CNBC: “I don't think it necessarily means that the United Kingdom will be completely over a barrel with the European Union.
“Because Mrs May's in this mess, I don't think it necessarily means that the Conservative Party doesn't have a strong case to put to the EU simply because I believe personally that it's in the European Union's best interest to continue tariff-free trade with the United Kingdom as it is in the United Kingdom's interest."
