Ukip's stand-in leader warns Theresa May: Don't water down Brexit objectives

Ukip's stand-in leader warns Theresa May: Don't water down Brexit objectives

The Conservatives fell short of a majority in the general election, losing 13 seats, and have now been forced to try to broker a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

"We can confirm that the Democratic Unionist Party have agreed to the principles of an outline agreement to support the Conservative government", a spokesman for May said.

The so-called confidence and supply agreement means that the supporting party will back the government in motions of confidence by either voting in favor or abstaining, while retaining the right to vote otherwise in matters of conscience.

There was no mention of what concessions the DUP may have asked for, amid growing concern about the influence of a party opposed to abortion and gay marriage.

The Sun newspaper said senior members of the party had vowed to get rid of Ms May, but would wait at least six months because they feared a leadership contest could propel Labour's Jeremy Corbyn into power.

The Prime Minister lost her majority and Ukip lost its leader in a disastrous General Election for both parties.

It continued: "The talks so far have been positive".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed a new chief of staff following the resignation of her two top aides.

Speaking to Andrew Marr on BBC One on Sunday, Corbyn insisted the Labour Party did not lose the election but rather "didn't win the election".

Explaining her decision yesterday, the PM apologised to Tories who had lost their seats due to her election fiasco and gushed that the DUP were "friends and allies".

Ohio State coaching candidates to replace Thad Matta, grouped by plausibility
Because of the condition of his back, Matta wasn't able to ascend those steps, and you had to come to him for media opportunities. The Buckeyes finished 17-15 overall and 7-11 in the league, ending the season with a Big Ten Tournament loss to Rutgers .

"From hubris to humiliation", said the left-leaning Guardian.

For her to suggest she is now providing certainty would be laughable if it were not so serious.

And rebellious backbencher Heidi Allen, who has previously criticised her party's stance on issues including cuts to tax credits, has also spoken out over the talks, saying she was "deeply unhappy" over the prospect of a formal deal with the DUP.

Some senior Tories had made the removal of Hill and Timothy a condition for continuing to support May, who has vowed to remain prime minister.

But, unlike during the election campaign, when she repeatedly referred to the talks starting on 19 June, she was not specific about the date, suggesting it might slip.

Several Conservative lawmakers have warned that May can not carry on indefinitely, after throwing away a 17-seat majority in the 650-seat House of Commons. At the start of the campaign, she was enjoying poll leads of 20 points or more over the main opposition Labour Party.

"There has been a lot of hyperbole about the DUP since Thursday, a lot of things said, a lot of people who really don't know what we stand for", DUP leader Arlene Foster told Sky News.

He had annoyed many Conservatives who want a clean break with the European Union by stressing the need for a Brexit deal that allows companies to keep on hiring the migrant workers they need, and took the blame for a policy U-turn in March when he quickly dropped a plan to raise social security tax for self-employed workers.

May told reporters that she had "wanted to achieve a larger majority but that was not the result".
