UK: May to form minority govt after shock at polls

UK: May to form minority govt after shock at polls UK: May to form minority govt after shock at polls
Bennie Garza | 11 June, 2017, 20:56

It is not thought that Mrs May has offered a full coalition with the DUP, which was catapulted into the role of kingmaker after boosting its Westminster tally by two MPs to 10.

The two parties are expected to produce a "programme for government".

46-year-old Arlene Foster is the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party Who is DUP leader Arlene Foster?

"It's wrong to say we're not in favor of a soft Brexit", DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds told the BBC, saying he was against a deal that would restore a "hard border" that would cause significant barriers to movement between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

"I have just been to see Her Majesty, the Queen and I will now form a government".

"If, as the indications have shown and if this is correct, the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes, then it will be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is exactly what we will do". "The DUP are experts at playing this game".

And as recently as past year, DUP politician Trevor Clarke stated in the Northern Ireland Assembly that he didn't know heterosexuals could get or transmit HIV.

A number of high-profile government figures have already confirmed they are keeping their jobs in the wake of an election that saw the Tories lose 13 seats.

However, Mrs May insisted that, as the leader of the largest party in the new parliament, she had a duty to act in the "national interest".

She hailed her party's historic election victory of securing 36% of the vote. She can also try to govern with a minority - but if her party doesn't get enough support on an important vote, it might force a new general election. "In the days and weeks ahead, it is that Union that will be to the forefront of our minds". And now, Theresa May is set to make the same mistake again with this grubby little deal with the DUP.

2017 was the best election result ever for the fiercely pro-unionist Irish political party.

Ms Foster described the uncertainty facing the United Kingdom, following the recent terror attacks, the close run election and Brexit negotiations looming.

Mrs May is believed to have struck deal, but not a formal coalition agreement, with the party, which narrowly gives her the numbers she needs to pass legislation in the House of Commons.

The Jeremy Corbyn led Opposition Labour party performed better than most forecast, making considerable gains from the Tories to end up at 262 MPs.

Jeremy Paxman didn't hold back with his questions to Theresa May and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. She is a very good leader.

After all, it was a Conservative Prime Minister who introduced same-sex marriage in England and Wales and, in 2015, his bold decision was rewarded at the ballot box. Contact your MP and be vocal on social media.

On the surface, the Irish unionists have much in common with the Tories.

"There is no doubt that the Conservative Party failed to match the initial expectations of a convincing landslide", Matthew Goodwin, professor of politics and global relations at the University of Kent, England, told ABC News via email one day before the election. One of them is country, one of the others is LGBTI rights. She did not, however, provide details of the nature of the alliance with the DUP.
