CITI: We expect May to resign

Damian Green Damian Green is the new First Secretary of State
Bennie Garza | 13 June, 2017, 10:35

The day after her snap election gamble backfired, wiping out the Tories' slim majority in Parliament, May was due to finish announcing her Cabinet.

Timothy and Hill had worked for May when she was interior minister, before she became prime minister in July past year in the chaotic days that followed the Brexit vote, and their influence had increasingly angered senior ministers.

May remains in 10 Downing Street with a much diminished power base after her Conservative party fell short of an overall majority in the House of Commons, the lower house of the UK Parliament, as the general election results threw up a hung Parliament yesterday. The DUP partnership gives May enough seats to push her agenda. We want to end austerity and invest in this country and that's what we're going to do.

In an article for the Conservative Home website, Timothy conceded that the campaign had failed to communicate "Theresa's positive plan for the future", and to notice surging support for the opposition Labour Party.

Theresa May is trying to persuade the ten DUP MPs to enter into a formal coalition agreement with the Tories, as opposed to a less formal "confidence and supply" arrangement, ministers tell me.

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

In a statement after returning from Buckingham Palace, where she received the Queen's permission to form a government, May shrugged off a growing backlash in the Conservative Party, and said she would provide the "certainty" the country needed.

She seemed to settle nerves among Eurosceptics and pro-EU lawmakers about her strategy for Britain's departure from the European Union and eased concerns about a tie-up with the Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which some feared could press on social issues such as abortion and gay rights.

"One thing that is clear from the result of the election is that the mandate Theresa May sought for her extreme version of Brexit has been rejected by the British people", said Tim Farron, Liberal Democrats leader.

Nick Clegg, the party's former leader and former Deputy Prime Minister, lost his seat, while the party's leader Tim Farron held on with a narrow majority.

However other senior Tories - including Graham Brady, the influential chairman of the '22 - predicted MPs would rally round, insisting there was no mood in the party for a damaging leadership contest which could see them plunged into a fresh general election.

The heroine of the Conservative campaign, Scottish leader Ruth Davidson, signalled her opposition by tweeting a link to a same-sex marriage lecture she gave previous year.

Above all, investors are anxious about the general uncertainty surrounding the country - whether a bruised May will be able to govern effectively or whether she may eventually resign.

Sky News anchor Adam Bolton read out a text message she had sent to him live on air after he mentioned the health of the prime minister, who has diabetes.

Money for Northern Ireland will undoubtedly be part of their demands, and Mrs May will expect that.

Senior party figures have cautioned against any immediate leadership challenge, saying it would cause only further disruption as Britain prepares to start talks with Brussels as early as June 19.

In more recent times, former first minister Peter Robinson's wife Iris, then an MP, described homosexuality as an "abomination", while the MP son of Dr Paisley, Ian Paisley Jr, said he felt "repulsed" by homosexual acts.
