Democratic Unionists in Northern Ireland become election key

May called the snap election confident of increasing her Conservative Party's majority to strengthen her hand in the Brexit talks, only to lose her majority in Thursday's election.

After failing to secure enough votes to command a majority at Westminster, May has announced she will attempt to run a minority government through support from the controversial Northern Irish party's 10 MPs.

Mrs May is scheduled to visit Buckingham Palace at 12.30pm to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government, a spokesman from her office said. "She said: "[The DUP-Conservative coalition] has made the possibility of successful talks more remote - there is now no credibility for the Tory government to be an independent chair, putting the entire process in real danger of collapsing".

"We will continue to work with our friends and allies in the DUP", May said as she began to formulate her new government.

"This gives me the confidence to believe that we will work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom", she said.

Scottish Episcopal Church votes to allow same-sex marriage ceremonies
Same-sex weddings could be held within the church by the autumn, reports have suggested. The new canon was an official recognition of a diversity of viewpoints, he added.

With 649 of 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats and Labour 261 followed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party with 34. Buoyed by the gains his party received, leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday said Labour was "ready to serve this country".

Ms Davidson, who became engaged to partner Jen Wilson in May 2016, later told the BBC: "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".

May called the election early with the aim of shoring up support for the Conservatives ahead of the country's crucial Brexit negotiations, but the move has clearly backfired.

This agreement does not require the larger party to concede ministerial positions, unlike a coalition, and allows a smaller party to play a part in government and policy making without signing up to the responsibility of leadership in the government.

According to its manifesto, the DUP's top priorities include the restoration of a working assembly and executive in Northern Ireland, rises in the minimum wage and a commitment to universal welfare benefits. It is thanks to DUP opposition that Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom where same-sex marriage is not legal, after the party exercised a veto.

Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions
Top White House spokesman Sean Spicer won't say whether the president has confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions . The investigation of potential Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin has gotten under the President's skin.

"It's an issue very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurances from the prime minister on, and I received (them)".

And although it has a female leader, it remains an overwhelmingly male, white bastion and is certainly more conservative than the Conservatives. The DUP's politicians have also been at the center of some serious corruption scandals involving property and the bias distribution of government contracts.

"She is now reliant on the DUP and absolute loyalty from the Conservative party - loyalty that was not given to her over the Budget".

"No one wants to see a "hard" Brexit, what we want to see is a workable plan to leave the European Union, ' she said".
