UK leader May strikes tentative deal with N Ireland party

The Labour leader, who has insisted the Conservatives lost the election despite being the largest party, was photographed by Times columnist Giles Coren at the football practice in sunny north London as the Prime Minister grappled with the fallout of losing her majority.

Former Chancellor George Osborne, who previously served in May's cabinet, said her position in the party was heavily weakened, telling the BBC she was a "dead woman walking".

The pair formed part of May's small inner circle and were blamed by many Conservatives for the party's lackluster campaign and unpopular election platform.

"The reason for the disappointing result was not the absence of support for Theresa May and the Conservatives but an unexpected surge in support for Labour", Timothy wrote.

British Prime Minister Theresa May arrives back at 10 Downing Street after announcing she would form a minority government. Some say her failure means the government must now take a more flexible approach to the divorce.

The Conservatives won 318 seats in Thursday's vote, down from 331 in the 2015 vote, falling short of an overall majority in the 650-seat House of Commons.

May's office said on Saturday principles of an agreement had been reached, but the two sides later clarified that they are still talking.

An analysis of marginal seats in the United Kingdom general election has revealed exactly how many votes away Jeremy Corbyn was from becoming Prime Minister.

Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of the party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power.

United States unemployment rate dips to 4.3 percent
The U.S. economy added 138,000 jobs last month, less than the 174,000 jobs gained in April and lower than expected. The leisure and hospitality industry added 31,000 net new jobs in May, down from 58,000 the previous month.

Mrs May responded that the DUP deal "would provide stability and certainty for the United Kingdom going forward", her office said.

The alliance makes some modernizing Conservatives uneasy. The group's leader Arlene Foster was elected previous year on a promise to work to prevent abortion rights from being extended to Northern Ireland.

The DUP, whose 10 seats would allow the government to get measures through Parliament, is a socially conservative pro-British Protestant group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and includes both environmentalists and climate-change deniers among its senior ranks.

French President Emmanuel Macron meanwhile said he was "pleased that she would continue to be a close partner" and agreed their countries' "strong friendship. was important and would endure". At first it seemed to work, but May's decision to introduce a new policy which would see people pay more towards their elderly care was a turning point.

"And I think because of that he's commanded enormous respect from Labour MPs and the people of this country".

Former Conservative party leaders have warned that any immediate leadership challenge would be too disruptive, but most commentators believe Mrs May can not survive in the long term.

Newspaper headlines saw her as just clinging on.

But the wooing of the DUP risks upsetting the political balance in Northern Ireland by aligning London more closely with the pro-British side in the divided province, where a power-sharing government with Irish nationalists is now suspended.

"May fights to remain PM", said the front page of the Daily Telegraph, while the Times of London said: "May stares into the abyss". "We believed the polls and we were cocky", said one senior Conservative source, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the subject.
