Hanging in There - Theresa May Stays UK PM, For Now

British Prime Minister Theresa May will form a government supported by a small Northern Irish party after her Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority in an election debacle days before talks on Britain's European Union departure are due to begin.

Britain's Primer Minister Theresa May leaves Downing Street with her husband on the way to Buckingham Palace after Britain's election in London, Britain June 9, 2017.

For May, the answer to her coalition woes is simple - the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), who stand for election in Northern Ireland only. "That means we are leaving the European Union".

"We put forward our policies - strong and hopeful policies - and they've gained an wonderful response and traction", he said.

"The country needs a period of stability and whatever the results are the Conservative Party will ensure we fulfil our duty in ensuring that stability so that we can all, as one country, go forward together", she said. The BBC has reported that May will intend to try and govern on the basis that her party had won the largest number of votes and seats.

"This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country, securing a new partnership with the European Union which guarantees our long-term prosperity". The party had previously confirmed they were prepared to form a coalition government, as the Independent reports.

Corbyn's Labor Party lobbied against Brexit but has indicated it will honor the results of the United Kingdom referendum to leave the EU.

May has said Brexit talks will begin on June 19 as scheduled, the same day as the formal reopening of parliament.

"Rise like lions. We are many, they are few".

Corbyn's long history of adopting a less reactionary position toward political violence from the corners of the British Empire, particularly Northern Ireland, should have given May an advantage after the attack - at least according to conventional wisdom. Her main opponent - Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, known for his left-wing views - was stumbling from mishap to mishap, unable even to muster solid support from his party's own lawmakers.

Tory supporter Nick, 31, blamed the defeat on May's "arrogance".

And in this she was right. "Whoever takes over has to understand campaigning is important", he told AFP in London.

The party moved quickly to rule out a snap leadership contest after her bid to secure an increased majority fell embarrassingly short.

May had called Thursdays early election to strengthen her hand in Brexit talks but instead lost the Conservatives overall majority in Parliament.

"The people of Britain have had a bellyful of promises and politicking", he wrote. Nuttall served as leader of UKIP until he announced his resignation Friday morning.

The Scottish National Party: Nicola Sturgeon's party won 56 of 59 Scottish seats in the 2015 election but lost ground on Thursday. "The math and chemistry in the Commons will be pushing away from a hard Brexit", he said. Gove, who was dismissed when May became prime minister past year, will now serve as environment secretary.

British voters headed to the polls after May had called for general elections in April.

Officials in Brussels were hopeful the election would allow her to make compromises, but this has been thrown into question by the prospect of a hung parliament. The party is dedicated to an open border with the Republic of Ireland and may demand that be included in Brexit negotiations.

Despite campaigning against Brexit, Labour has accepted the result but promised to avoid a "hard Brexit", focusing on maintaining economic ties with the bloc.

May's campaign catchphrase of a "strong and stable government" has backfired.

On May 22, a suicide bomber killed 23 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Eight people were killed near London Bridge on Saturday when three men drove a van into pedestrians and then stabbed revelers in an area filled with bars and restaurants.
