DUP to support minority Tory government after 'confidence and supply' deal reached

DUP to support minority Tory government after 'confidence and supply' deal reached

People voted DUP to get Stormont back and working.

May is clinging to power despite losing her Commons majority.

The Prime Minister's former communications chief Katie Perrior, who left Downing Street when the election was called, hit out at the two aides' "rude, abusive, childish behaviour".

The term "omnishambles" was coined by the TV comedy show, The Thick Of It, in a now-legendary quote from Malcolm Tucker.

At the same time the hashtag #WorstPrimeMinisterInHistory trended on Twitter.

Currently, investors seem to worry that a weakened Conservative prime minister would not have the power to resist calls from some within the party who want a clean divorce from the European Union, even if that means losing privileged access to the European Union single market.

The fallout from Thursday's snap general election, which left her Conservative Party bereft of their majority, also prompted her to seek out a relatively tiny ally that could have vast sway over what happens next in the United Kingdom. Talks with European Union leaders are due to start in less than two weeks and those meetings may now need to be delayed, further eroding the time that Britain has to clinch a deal before it leaves the bloc in March 2019.

DUP leader Arlene Foster said there had been "very good discussions" so far on how her 10 MPs could support a Conservative minority government, and she would travel to London to meet May on Tuesday.

Above all, investors are anxious about the general uncertainty surrounding the country - whether a bruised May will be able to govern effectively or whether she may eventually resign.

However he acknowledged that the party would have to abandon much of the programme set out in the general election manifesto as it would no longer be able to get it through Parliament.

That day, Queen Elizabeth II will appear before Parliament and give a speech setting out the new government's agenda. This is still on.

May, the Tory leader, is expected to go to Buckingham Palace on Friday to ask the queen's permission to form a governmental coalition, according to The Guardian.

"Mail on Sunday tripe - I am backing Theresa May". But not for some time, let's get this clear.

But the Sunday Times said Johnson had been pressed by five Cabinet colleagues to oust May.

But Labour said they were the "real winners". "Boris is the only option with the liberal values, Brexit credentials and popular appeal".

The Conservatives won 318 House of Commons seats in Thursday's election, eight short of an outright majority.

Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, replaces joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill.

New poll suggests Labour would win a second general election.

"I just can't see how she can continue in any long-term way".

Former conservative minister Anna Soubry added that the premier "is in a very hard place. she now has to obviously consider her position".

Britain takes a leading role in global anti-terror efforts and is a key member of the US-led coalition bombing Islamist State group positions in Iraq and Syria.

"And move to a consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave". LANDSLIDE MAY VICTORY Sterling rallied in April when May called the vote as investors bet her then-large poll lead would translate into a big majority, reducing uncertainty over whether she would have the mandate required to negotiate on Britain's behalf and then drive the deal through parliament.

'I tell you this, we will absolutely remain part of the European Convention on Human Rights and European Court of Human Rights - we are not walking away from those vital post-war agreements that were made'.
