Merkel assumes United Kingdom to stick with its Brexit talks plan after election

19 Juin 2017

The Conservatives "have lost their majority and the prime minister has lost all authority and credibility", said Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. Labour remains in the opposition.

European Council President Donald Tusk warned there was "no time to lose", adding: "Our shared responsibility and urgent task now is to conduct the negotiations on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union in the best possible spirit, securing the least disruptive outcome for our citizens, businesses and countries". And dreams of an independent Scotland from Scottish nationalists have been shattered. However, she brought this upon herself.

The DUP backs the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, but on the condition its border with European Union member the Republic of Ireland, remains "frictionless".

Ms Davidson, who became engaged to partner Jen Wilson in May 2016, later said: "I was fairly straightforward with her (Mrs May) and I told her that there were a number of things that count to me more than the party".

Scotland voted to remain in the European Union, and Ms Davidson has called for a softer approach to the withdrawal process.

The more the United Kingdom delays, the less time it will have available to reach a compromise agreement with the 27 other countries in the EU.

People demonstrate in Parliament Square against the Conservative and DUP coalition government following the Britain's general election result, in London, Saturday June 10, 2017.

That would leave the Tories with 12 fewer seats than in the previous parliament, while Labour is projected to finish with 260 MPs. The DUP is a socially conservative group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and had links to Protestant paramilitary groups during Ireland's sectarian "Troubles".

After confirming on Friday that her top five ministers would keep their jobs, including finance minister Philip Hammond, May is expected to continue appointing the government that will take on one of the most demanding negotiations in British history. "The rebellion against her is just getting started".

Or, either the Conservatives or Labour could attempt to govern as a minority administration, seeking to win support in the Commons for their programme on a vote-by-vote basis.

Katie Perrior, who quit as May's communications chief in April, said Timothy and Hill were "great street fighters but poor political leaders" and exercised too much power over the prime minister.

Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn was victorious in a close race against May, giving the left-leaning party the majority in the British Parliament.

The Labour Party was crippled by in-fighting and defections.

Bernie Sanders has congratulated Jeremy Corbyn on Labour's performance in the general election.

With the DUP providing the Conservatives a narrow, but crucial, majority in Parliament, it could have an outsized influence. May has in effect, created an opposition that didn't exist before. "I'm very proud to lead this party".

Some say her failure means the government must now take a more flexible approach to the divorce, potentially softening the exit terms. A leader who can cut through all the recent negative campaigning and give the people a clear and positive direction that will give us all something to help strive for.
