United Kingdom set for coalition government after May's Conservatives lose seats

May Will Quit If She Loses Majority Source Tells LBC

Labour will also push for more public spending on social welfare, free university education and higher taxes for the richest one percent.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability. She's now attempting to form a government. May and her party had been expected to win by large margins, but things did not go as she had planned.

May called the election early with the aim of shoring up support for the Conservatives ahead of the country's crucial Brexit negotiations, but the move has clearly backfired.

Osborne, now editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper, said May's days in Downing Street are numbered. "He's in a permanent leadership campaign so I am not sure it qualifies as news", he said. She argued that Brexit, which Scotland largely rejected, changed the scenario to such an extent Scotland should be given a second referendum.

On Brexit, the DUP supports leaving the European Union but opposes a return to a "hard" border with Ireland, which could happen if May carries through her threat to walk away from the talks rather than accept a "bad deal". With Thursday's election providing 29 new Labour MPs, Corbyn's energetic election campaign has paid off. It was anecdotal evidence on the ground that led people to think that Theresa May was making big inroads into the Labour white working class vote, a bit like, I guess, Donald Trump did in the States.

Initial talks have begun with Northern Ireland's DUP after Mrs.

May spoke to the Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Enda Kenny over the phone on Sunday. Her party put Britain up for Brexit, playing around with party politics and gambling away the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Britons.

The Good Friday Agreement was a major development in the peace process of the 1990s that brought peace to the region after decades of conflict. And the Democratic Unionist Party want what most parties want.

The UK snap general election took place on Thursday, and resulted in a so-called hung parliament, with the Conservative Party getting 318 seats, the Labour Party securing 261 seats, the Scottish National Party getting 35 seats, and the Liberal Democrats gaining 12 seats with one constituency yet to declare results. "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row", former Conservative finance minister George Osborne, who was sacked by May when she became prime minister a year ago, told the BBC. It was a part of the neoliberal consensus, the "third way" approach of triangulation that had come to dominate the political spectrum, essentially: trust in unfettered free-market capitalism, but throw in some small, lukewarm measures meant to mitigate its ravaging effects on the public.

"But I would like to make clear that the freakish media reports about my own role in the policy's inclusion are wrong: it had been the subject of many months of work within Whitehall, and it was not my personal pet project".

TUESDAY, JUNE 13 - May to meet with DUP leader Arlene Foster Discussions were held between May's Conservatives and the DUP over the weekend with a view to the Northern Irish party supporting May's minority government on key votes in parliament. "When you're doing that going into Brexit negotiations - some of the most brutal, arduous negotiations this country has ever faced - you don't have a chance going up against it without really a strong majority".

The role of Mr Timothy and Ms Hill as Mrs May's joint chiefs of staff had been severely criticised by disgruntled Tories in the wake of the election result.
