UK Prime Minister Theresa May says she'll stick to Brexit timetable


The party is pro-Brexit, pro-Union and notably anti-Corbyn.

THERESA MAY has struck a deal with the Democratic Unionists that will allow her to form a government, sources have confirmed.

Yes. Theresa May has asked the Queen to form a government, which means she will continue as the Prime Minister and choose the Cabinet. But she can't hide from those Tory MPs who are now turning on her.

In government, they would ally themselves with the hard Brexit wing of the Tory party.

There had been speculation that Mr Hammond in particular would be vulnerable if the Prime Minister had been returned - as she had hoped - with an increased majority. All other senior Tory ministers refused media interviews.

Also re-appointed, the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is said to be "on manoeuvres" and sounding out MPs about a leadership bid.

Instead, her strategy backfired as the election took away the Conservative majority and sent the country into political turmoil.

May told reporters that she had "wanted to achieve a larger majority but that was not the result".

The stunning election result comes after a campaign in which May lost popularity over her style and some of her social care policies, including a so-called "dementia tax" that would force the elderly to pay more for their care.

Former minister Anna Soubry said Mrs May should "consider her position" after a "dreadful campaign" while backbencher Heidi Allen suggested she could be out within a matter of months, depending on the Brexit negotiations.

"History will show, alliances between Ulster unionism and British unionism has always ended in tears", he said.

Sinn Fein won seven of the region's 18 seats, a gain of three - though none of the winning candidates will take their seat in Westminster.

On Friday there were early signs of tensions over the Conservatives' proposed deal with the DUP.

"It is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the legitimacy and ability to provide that", May said in a short speech at 10 Downing Street.

Northern Ireland is now without a government as power-sharing between nationalists and unionists collapsed in January.

May said Friday she looks forward to working with "our friends and allies" in the DUP.

"I asked for a categoric assurance that if any deal or scoping deal was done with the DUP there would be absolutely no rescission (repeal) of LGBTI rights in the rest of the United Kingdom, and that we would use any influence that we had to advance LGBTI rights in Northern Ireland".

However Davidson replied on Twitter the report was "bollocks".

Meanwhile, the Scottish National Party retained just 35 of the 56 seats it secured two years ago and lost its Westminster leader, Angus Robertson, and former first minister Alex Salmond.

The Liberal Democrats said May should be "ashamed" of carrying on.

"Rushing to overly-simplistic judgments too quickly is not the right thing to do".

"We have laid the foundations for a minority government, and then eventually a majority government", he told the BBC.
