I'm here as long as you want me, May says

May has dismissed calls to resign following the dismal election result and on Monday faced her MPs and vowed to govern.

The chaos has weighed on the pound, which has plunged nearly two percent since Thursday, and the government may have to delay the announcement of its policy plans to parliament. Foreign minister Boris Johnson, who was reported by British media to be lining up a leadership bid, insisted May should stay.

However, even though she backed the Remain campaign, she pledged to abide by the will of the British people and take Britain out of the European Union in a so-called "Hard Brexit".

Party leader Arlene Foster seemed buoyant as she arrived at May's Downing Street office - and her good mood just kept on going.

"Obviously until we have that we can't agree the final details of the Queen's Speech", said May's deputy Damian Green, referring to a DUP agreement.

"People knew that we were abstentionist MPs, they have elected us to represent them but not to take our seats".

He also said the government would "walk away" with no deal if talks broke down on ending Britain's four-decade membership of the bloc.

George Bridges, another Brexit minister, quit the department, the Times of London reported, leaving Brexit secretary David Davis with a new team just a week before negotiations with the European Union are due to start.

Barnier's comments, which came from a joint interview with various European media outlets, including the U.K.'s Financial Times, further underscore the pressure that Prime Minister Theresa May and her colleagues face almost three months after triggering the Article 50 exit process and amid a domestic political crisis that some say could topple the government.

"The idea that the United Kingdom led by this prime minister and this government can just blunder into negotiations starting one week today, I just don't think it's a credible proposition", she told reporters in London.

But speaking during a visit to Paris to meet French president Emmanuel Macron, Mrs May told reporters: "We as Government remain absolutely steadfast in our commitment to the Belfast Agreement and the subsequent agreements and we continue to work with all the parties in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in ensuring that we can continue to put in place those measures necessary to fulfil those agreements". He disconcerted David Cameron when, in 2013, he said he was appalled that "every single sphere of British influence" in society was still dominated by men and women who went to private school or who are from the "affluent middle class". May tried to reassert her shattered authority at the weekend by announcing her new cabinet - with no changes among her top team.

May also restored former Justice Secretary Michael Gove to the Cabinet in another move created to show she was willing to listen to critics.

After the opposition Labour party made hefty election gains by focusing heavily on national issues, May listed areas such as education and housing as top policy priorities.

On Monday, Labour Party politician and former shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper called for a cross-party commission on Brexit, in an article for "The Guardian" newspaper in an article for "The Guardian" newspaper.

The MPs involved in the secret talks are believed to be "remainers" - those who backed staying in the European Union - who had already forged alliances when they campaigned together in the lead-up to the referendum.

"I got us into this mess, and I'm going to get us out", she said.

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

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has also sought to downplay the DUP's future role, saying the government was not looking at a formal coalition but would seek assurances that the DUP would vote with May "on the big things".

Because of the DUP's views over LGBT rights, abortion and climate change.
