Theresa May remains under pressure ahead of DUP talks

Posted June 12, 2017

That means it will support a Conservative minority government on key votes in parliament without a formal coalition deal. Its principal demand in exchange for propping up May is that in Brexit negotiations, scheduled to begin next week, the United Kingdom refuse to consider some "special status" for Northern Ireland (due to its long border with European Union member Ireland) that might tend to detach the embattled region from the rest of the country.

The 1998 agreement makes clear that the British government must show "rigorous impartiality" towards the interests of unionists and nationalists in Northern Ireland - a stipulation that some fear could be threatened by the DUP propping up a Conservative minority government. "We will fulfil the promise of Brexit together and over the next five years build a country in which no one, and no community, is left behind", May said. That day, Queen Elizabeth II will appear before Parliament and give a speech setting out the new government's agenda.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I can still be prime minister".

Former chancellor George Osborne predicted that Mrs May could be forced out of No 10 within a matter of days, saying she was "dead woman walking".

So who is really in charge?

Her campaign unravelled after a policy U-turn on care for the elderly, while Mr Corbyn's old-school socialist platform and more impassioned campaigning won wider support than any had foreseen, notably from young voters, say analysts. At that point, polls predicted she would massively increase the slim majority she had inherited from Cameron.

"What I've done today is see people from across the party accepting the invitation to be in my cabinet, and crucially I've brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party".

May's aides, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, announced on Saturday that they had quit following sustained criticism of the campaign within the party.

Mr Brady later confirmed Mrs May will be attending a meeting of the Tory backbench 1922 Committee on Monday afternoon.

"Negotiations on our exit from the European Union are about to commence, and we now face uncertainty at Westminster". Since the election, most of the members of May's cabinet have kept quiet on the issue of her future, adding to speculation that her days as prime minister are numbered.

An alliance, at what cost?

He said the Labour party will set out its own programme for government as an amendment to the Queen's Speech, focusing on austerity and a "jobs-first Brexit". That power is now lost.

Meanwhile, Labour, which had been written off by critics as all but unelectable, surged to 262 seats, up 29 from its tally in the 2015 election.

But here is what we absolutely know unequivocally about this administration: nothing they say can ever be taken a face value. Trump demurred when asked whether tapes of his talks with Comey actually exist.

"If Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was forming a coalition government then there would be a lot to talk about", said Ghany. She sought to deflect pressure onto Corbyn, arguing he had a weak record on security matters.

Pressed if he was being clear that the United Kingdom will leave the EU, Mr Corbyn said: "Absolutely".

Ministers have urged May to put forward a more "pragmatic" vision for Brexit rather than "ideological", one that it less virulently anti-EU.

This is expected to mean a softer Brexit negotiating position than may have been the case under a Conservative majority.

Office worker Christina Kelly, 38, described the result as "not exactly an ideal situation" but said it would likely focus more attention on Northern Ireland and particularly how Brexit would affect the region.

May, who accepted victory in her Maidenhead constituency, still asserted her party had won the most seats and insisted long-term stability remained. It's hard to predict how they'll react, he says.
