UK prime minister's top aides resign after election fiasco

UK prime minister's top aides resign after election fiasco

Her Conservatives struck an outline deal with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) for support on key legislation, a humiliating outcome for them after an election meant to make them a dominant force.

Her Downing Street office initially said last Saturday that the "principles of an outline agreement" had been agreed with the DUP, only for the smaller party to contradict that hours later.

I think, you know, we see this election extremely effective Labour Party campaign, which has not allowed the Labour Party to win the election outright but has enabled it to deny the conservatives and Prime Minister May a parliamentary majority.

"We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond", Downing Street said in a statement.

"The arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost, and we need to change", he said. This is still on.

"A handful of senior people have pledged their loyalty to Boris at Cabinet level", a Johnson ally told "The Sunday Times".

"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 said in an article published on the ConservativeHome blog.

On the so-called Great Repeal Bill, created to transfer European Union law into British law before withdrawal in March 2019, Mr Corbyn said: "I suspect we'll have something different coming in a couple of weeks time".

Mr Hammond tweeted: "Pleased to have been re-appointed so we can now get on and negotiate a Brexit deal that supports British jobs, business and prosperity".

Kellyanne Conway's husband: Trump tweets won't help travel ban pass
Earlier on Monday, Kellyanne Conway said the media had an "obsession" with covering Trump's tweets. We will do whatever it takes to help them moving forward.

She seems secure for the immediate future, because senior Conservatives don't want to plunge the party into a damaging leadership contest.

The result has demolished May's political authority, and she has also lost her two top aides, sacrificed in a bid to save their leader from being toppled by a furious Conservative Party.

A YouGov poll for the Sunday Times newspaper found 48 percent of people felt May should quit while 38 percent thought she should stay.

Here are a few questions over what it means and its implications for the country.

Granted, the Tories still have the most seats, but in the United Kingdom that doesn't mean much without actually reaching a majority.

In a hint at the approach she wanted, she said: "It is about making sure that we put free trade at the heart of what it is we seek to achieve as we leave".

Former chancellor George Osborne predicted that Mrs May could be forced out of No 10 within a matter of days, saying she was "dead woman walking".

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who is gay, was among the first to express disquiet over a deal with the ultra-conservative DUP.

"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. "In other words, we could easily get to the middle of next week and it all collapses for her".
