With British politics thrust into the deepest turmoil since last June's shock Brexit vote, European Union leaders have been left wondering how divorce talks would open next week.

The Conservatives are having to rely on the support of 10 DUP MPs after they fell eight seats short of winning an overall majority at the general election. It was originally pencilled in for Monday, June 12 but has now been pushed back until later in the week. but there's a hitch.The Royal Ascot horse race meeting starts on Tuesday and lasts for the rest of the week.

With Brexit talks set to start in Brussels on Monday, f ormer prime minister Mr Cameron said Mrs May would have to change her approach as a result of the election.

Meanwhile his colleague George Freeman said it was time for the government to "drop a hard Brexit" message and return to a "message of hope" he said May articulated when she first became prime minister.

Mrs May called the general election claiming rival parties were trying to sabotage her Brexit plans and promised to be a "bloody hard woman" during talks.

Speaking in London Mr Bruton raised concerns about how Brexit negotiations will divert time and talent away from other important matters.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn countered with a bit of previously unforeseen swagger, wearing a huge red rose - his party's symbol - in his lapel as he sparred with May.

The premier had planned a clean break from the European Union, but some Conservatives and opponents hope that the election shock will lead to a "softer" Brexit - one which prioritises close trade links over controlling immigration.

"I find it incredibly self indulgent for the Tory party to be going for this sort of stuff", he said on ITV television.

The PM told the backbench 1922 Committee on Monday a deal with the DUP would not affect power-sharing talks in Northern Ireland or LGBT rights. May is due to meet its leader Arlene Foster on Tuesday.

Britain entered the sixth day of political limbo on Wednesday with prime minister Theresa May yet to seal a deal to prop up her minority government and facing calls to soften her stance on Brexit, days before negotiations on leaving the European Union begin.

"I can't confirm anything yet until we know the final details of the agreement", he said.

Sinn Fein's Stormont leader, Michelle O'Neill, said she would raise the issue with the Prime Minister in face-to-face talks in London on Thursday.

Even senior Tories like the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, one of their few success stories at the moment, told us yesterday "it can't just be a Tory Brexit".

In a surprise move, Michael Gove was appointed environment and agriculture minister less than a year after the prime minister sacked him as justice minister.

Ignoring demands that she resign, Mrs May said on Friday that she will form a minority government with the support of the DUP in the form of a loose alliance.

Lawmakers, who are by tradition not named at such meetings, told Reuters that there were no dissenting voices and that the party had no appetite for a leadership election.

"I've not had anyone say let's have another election", pro-Brexit lawmaker Anne-Marie Trevelyan said in an interview after the meeting.

"We had a march through the city at the weekend with about a thousand people turn up". This is the third year running that they have been accosted at stations and asked for their support, or had campaign literature thrust into their hands.

Schaeuble predicted Britain would later regret its departure from the bloc "and then they'll come back".
