Democratic Unionists in Northern Ireland may be election key

British Prime Minister Theresa May's two chiefs of staff have resigned in the wake of the Conservative Party's disastrous election result. "I don't think the Conservative government is stable, I don't think the prime minister is stable".

The moves buy May a temporary reprieve. Investors worry a minority Conservative government would be weaker in Brexit talks, scheduled to begin June 19. Lack of a majority can inhibit the government from passing legislation, and the party with the most seats often has to cobble a coalition to enact laws.

Details of the agreement will be discussed and agreed by cabinet on Monday ( Tim Ireland/PA) A Downing Street spokesman said details will be discussed and agreed by cabinet on Monday, after which more information is likely to be released.

"We are ready to do everything we can to put our programme into operation, there isn't a parliamentary majority for anybody at the present time, the party that has lost in this election is the Conservative Party, the arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost". May's party won 318 seats, 12 fewer than it had before May called a snap election, and eight short of the 326 needed for an outright majority. Labour remains in the opposition. "We didn't shoot ourselves in the foot, we shot ourselves in the head", said Nigel Evans, the Conservative MP from Ribble Valley.

Here are six key takeaways from the most unexpected of elections.

"It was a disaster", he said. A "soft" Brexit, by which the United Kingdom gets to stay in the single market and European Union citizens can remain in the United Kingdom, now seems more likely but that will require a great deal of horse-trading. Senior EU officials and politicians have said May can postpone the date if she needs to, but with a final deadline for exiting the EU in March 2019, precious negotiating time would be lost if delayed.

The European Union's budget commissioner Guenther Oettinger says the outcome of the British election calls into question whether Brexit negotiations will be able to start as planned and will certainly complicate the process. "May's departure from Downing St.is remorseless".

In her statement Ms Hill said: "I have no doubt at all that Theresa May will continue to serve and work hard as Prime Minister and do it brilliantly". The DUP has fought to maintain tight restrictions on abortion and opposes gay marriage. Paisley's son, Ian Paisley Jr said that he was "repulsed" by homosexuality.

Before Mrs May stitched together her party's deal with the DUP, Labour briefly contemplated bidding to form a minority government.

There are other more specific measures in the 2017 manifesto such as the abolition of air passenger duty (APD) in Northern Ireland.

Corbyn and Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron criticised May for not resigning after not only failing to achieve her intended large mandate but also failing to retain the number of seats the party had in the last parliament: 331.

"I could not care less what people get up to in terms of their sexuality". "He's in a permanent leadership campaign so I am not sure it qualifies as news", he said. Any Brexit deal must reflect the "specific circumstances of Northern Ireland", Foster has said.

If all this uncertainty weren't enough, the Labour Party, which won 261 seats in the election, has its own divisions to deal with. Her "shortsighted adventurism" was her failure, Spain's biggest national newspaper El Pais, declared.

"You only have to see the ardent pro Brexiteers out and about on the TV today saying nothing has changed to know that everything has changed", said Travers. In order to do so, we also need to reassure working-class communities who traditionally voted Labour that we are serious about security and the defence of the realm.

"I don't think throwing us into a leadership battle at this moment in time, when we are about to launch into these hard negotiations, would be in the best interests of the country", Evans said.
