"I think the Conservative party as a whole is reluctant to get rid of Theresa May now because it would mean a leadership election, it would mean stalling on Brexit talks", Menon said.

"Theresa May is a dead woman walking".

Theresa May is to head a minority Conservative government - propped up by the DUP - after her General Election gamble backfired disastrously.

"With face-to-face talks with the European Union due to start on the 19th of June, the timing could not be worse", said Paul Hollingsworth, economist at Capital Economics in London. And the relationship between the Conservatives and its minority government partner, the Democratic Unionist Party, also remains unclear.

Downing Street says it hopes to finalize the deal next week, after Parliament resumes sitting.

Standing outside 10 Downing St. today, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May tried to put a courageous face on the disastrous results of Thursday's vote. That said May had "spoken with the DUP to discuss finalising" a deal in the coming week.

Many critics, including Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, have expressed concerns over the DUP's stances against gay marriage and abortion, among other issues.

Dry drowning may have claimed child's life
While both types of cases are very rare, it's critical for parents to keep an eye out for symptoms and respond quickly. According to the Centers for Disease Control "injury" drowning is the second leading cause of death among children.

On Brexit, the DUP supports leaving the European Union but opposes a return to a "hard" border with Ireland - which could happen if Ms May carries through her threat to walk away from the talks rather than accept a "bad deal".

"Nearly 13 million people voted for us to do it".

"Just to be clear, we will act in the national interest".

Over the next five years, she said, we will build a country and society that will leave no-one behind and would share opportunities across the UK.

The polls have closed in the United Kingdom's general election and early exit polls suggest that no party has won enough seats to win an overall majority and form a government.

"She's attempting to form a government", he told the Sunday Mirror.

Any Prime Minister would be unlikely to ask the Queen to present a programme if they did not believe it would secure the support of a majority of MPs in the Commons. This is still on. The move effectively makes the former work and pensions secretary, a friend and ally of the PM, her second in command, the BBC said.

Therefore, offering better sound quality might not necessarily be the tipping factor that will put HomePod sales into overdrive. Cook unveiled a series of software updates for all Apple's products and three new products.

"It is quite possible there will be an election later this year or early next year and that might be a good thing because we can not go on with a period of great instability", he told the BBC.

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: "If you are in one of the many areas that has seen a change in your MP, now is a great time to get them into your store and call on them for support on the issues facing your business. It's a poll. If the poll is anything like accurate this is completely catastrophic for the Conservatives and for Theresa May", Osborne told ITV News.

May had called the snap election with a view to increasing the narrow majority she had inherited from her predecessor David Cameron.

Among Tory MPs there was fury at the way a 20-point opinion poll lead at the start of the campaign had been thrown away in an election which she did not need to call for another three years.

The defence secretary said his party did not have to agree with the DUP on everything.

Johnson dismissed the reports as "tripe", tweeting late on Saturday that he was backing May.
