Theresa May To Form Govt In UK With DUP Support. Know How

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.

Sources close to Mr Johnson dismissed reports he was plotting a leadership bid as "complete bollocks" and suggested "someone is trying to make mischief".

Within the two years of talks, Britain wants to not only agree on the terms of its exit but also negotiate a new relationship on things like trade and security.

"I don't think we should talk about some prolongation of the deadline", he said in Prague. "Let's get on with the job", he said.

Then in April the next Conservative prime minister, Theresa May, called an early election that she hoped would give her a bigger majority in parliament and a stronger negotiating position in the Brexit talks.

Labour were resurgent in their heartlands and further afield, capturing 262 seats and 40% of the vote - its highest since ex-PM Tony Blair was in power.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn feels he can "still be the prime minister" and indicated today that the United Kingdom could face another election as beleaguered Theresa May's attempt to stitch an alliance to run a minority government after suffering a poll debacle has not yet fructified.

May has confirmed five of her most senior ministers will remain in their pre-election roles. But few believe she can hang on for more than a few months.

Earlier it was reported that Johnson had sent a WhatsApp message to Commons colleagues urging them to "calm down" following the election.

"I don't think she does have a majority in the House of Commons for leaving the single market", said Anna Soubry, a Conservative member of parliament who campaigned ahead of last year's referendum for Britain to stay in the EU.

Referring to the "strong relationship" she had with the DUP but giving little detail of how their arrangement might work, she said she meant to form a government which could "provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country".

It either sticks with the plan to rule with the Democratic Unionist Party or calls a new election.

The future of the proposed alliance had already been thrown into confusion late Saturday after May's office announced that an outline agreement had been struck, only to backtrack and say that talks were still ongoing.

"We have made good progress but the discussions continue", DUP leader Arlene Foster said.

THE DUP has denied reaching a deal with the Tories just hours after Downing Street said an agreement had been reached that would see the party prop up Theresa May's diminished Government. The DUP are also pro-Brexit so, if May adds the DUP's 10 seats to the Conservatives 318 she will secure the majority. This would involve the DUP supporting the Conservatives on key votes but not joining a formal coalition.

If a coalition of minority parties led by Labor effectively opposes May's government, a new election could be triggered.

SCULLY: We now have a deeply uncertain situation with regard to the British government, and it is extremely hard to see what sort of, you know, progress can be made in these talks.
