Jeremy Corbyn: Labour is ready for another general election

Share

George Osborne called Theresa May a "dead woman walking".

British Prime Minister Theresa May's two chiefs of staff have resigned in the wake of the Conservative Party's disastrous election result. Jeremy Corbyn, who many thought was totally unelectable, took a massive chunk out of the Conservative majority. The talks so far have been positive.

Sinn Fein is understood to be furious at some of the DUP's demands, which include cutting off foreign funding for parties in Northern Ireland.

The DUP were as "surprised as anybody" by Downing Street's original announcement, the BBC understands.

Downing Street made an error when it issued a statement saying the DUP had agreed the principles of a deal to back the Conservatives, according to Sky sources. "We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond", the final statement said. The party is a socially conservative pro-British Protestant group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and once appointed an environment minister who believes human-driven climate change is a myth.

Of the agreement she said: "This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country, securing a new partnership with the European Union which guarantees our long-term prosperity".

Fallon said the government wanted a "new partnership with Europe that is careful about the trade we already do with Europe, that comes to some agreement on the immigration that we can accept from Europe". Some say her failure means the government must now take a more flexible approach to the divorce. The Conservatives won 318 out of 650 seats - throwing away a 17-seat majority.

The Tories never fielded candidates in Northern Ireland and the UUP were seen as their sister party, just as the Catholic SDLP was close to Britain's Labour Party.

With nearly all seats declared, it became apparent that the Conservatives were no longer able to reach the 326-mark they would need to command a parliamentary majority. I hope the Conservative Party in Parliament gets behind the Prime Minister, and allows her the political space to negotiate that deal.

Hundreds of people chanted outside the home of the prime minister just a day after the General Election, which had thrown up a surprise result.

"It is quite possible there will be an election later this year or early next, year and that might be a good thing because we can not go on with a period of great instability", Mr Corbyn, who has called on Ms May to resign over the election result, told the BBC.

He said the Conservative election manifesto - which Hill and Timothy were key in drafting - was "a full assault on the core Tory voters, who are senior citizens".

Flanked by her 10 newly elected MPs, Mrs Foster confirmed that her party would enter discussions with the Tories to "explore how it may be possible to bring stability to our nation at this time of great challenge".

As party leader, Corbyn unenthusiastically campaigned for Britain to remain in the bloc, but has said Labour would deliver Brexit if in power, albeit with very different priorities from those stated by May.

"The mandate she's got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence", he said.

Flanagan said: "I'm conscious of the fact that this clock is ticking".

"We are not in government with the DUP or in coalition with the DUP".

Johnson tweeted that an article in the Mail on Sunday newspaper headlined "Boris set to launch bid to be PM as May clings on" was "tripe".
