May brings back foe, aiming to unite party before Brexit

12 Juin 2017

May put on a courageous face after Thursday's vote, expressing sorrow for the MPs who lost their seats but refusing to acknowledge how her election gamble backfired.

May's Downing Street office said today she had spoken with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), to discuss finalising a deal when parliament is reconvened next week.

A party spokesman confirmed the resignation of Hill, a combative character who one former colleague said had helped create a "toxic" atmosphere at the heart of the government.

The Conservative government has pledged to deliver Brexit by the end of March 2019, and negotiations with the European Union are due to formally begin on June 19, with Britain's negotiators seeking to ensure the best possible free trade deal with the EU. I am just commentating on it, I am not part of the negotiations.

A former senior DUP member has said an anti-Conservative Party election billboard has not come back to bite the party over its link up with Theresa May's party.

At the same time she has brought in the more emollient figure of Damian Green as First Secretary of State - a title often associated with the role of deputy prime minister - based in the Cabinet Office, in a limited reshuffle of her top team.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability.

That timeline now looks even more ambitious than before, not least because May's electoral debacle has emboldened those within her own party who object to her "hard Brexit" approach of leaving the European single market and customs union. "Let's get on with the job".

Several newspapers said Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was being urged by supporters to launch a leadership challenge, but he dismissed the reports as "tripe" in a tweet saying he was backing May.

Fallon said it would not be a formal coalition, instead the DUP's 10 MPs would support the government "on the big things" such as the budget, defence issues and Brexit.

"We need Bojo. We need a Brexiteer", they told the Mail on Sunday. 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".

Sinn Fein is seeking a referendum in the coming years on Northern Ireland splitting with the United Kingdom and joining a united Ireland. "We want a country that works for everyone".

In a phone call on Sunday, Kenny told May that forming a minority government reliant on the support of the hardline DUP could pose a "challenge" to the 1998 Good Friday peace accords.

If not, the opposition Labour Party would expect to have an opportunity to put forward an alternative Queen's Speech and see if it could win the support of a majority in parliament.If neither party can command a majority in parliament for their Queen's Speech, it is likely a fresh election would be called.

The Prime Minister was doing her utmost to signal that it was business as usual, announcing that she would be heading off to Paris on Tuesday for talks with French president Emmanuel Macron.
