Democratic Unionists in Northern Ireland may be election key

Democratic Unionists in Northern Ireland may be election key

But critics warned of political instability.

"A government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country".

There were indications that May had reached an agreement with the pro-Brexit Democratic Unionist Party, which holds 10 seats in the new parliament - enough to give May room to pass legislation, provided there are no rebellions within her own ranks. We have worked well with May. Get yourself and your mates down to Downing Street tonight and let her know we don't want her anymore.

Corbyn urged the Prime Minister to quit, saying he was "ready to serve" himself.

A Prime Minister who is not able to pass legislation is most likely to find it more hard to get the best deal for Britain's future in the negotiations.

"It's an issue very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurances from the prime minister on, and I received (them)", said Davidson, who is engaged to be married to her female partner.

Their 2015 campaign was built around the hope there would be a hung parliament so that they would have more influence in the House - but David Cameron's majority meant that was not possible.

European Council President Donald Tusk, however, congratulated May.

But there was a degree of truth in her assertion that the Government negotiating Brexit needed to be "strong and stable".

Today's London Evening Standard is running a frontpage headline reading: "May's Irish Bailout". The Daily Mail screamed: "Gamble That Backfired".

To make matters worse for May, her main rivals in the Commons, Jeremy Corbyn's Labor Party, did spectacularly well, increasing the size of their numbers to 261 MPs. It finished with 35 seats. It was being predicted, that May could win a 180-seat majority, something that would have made her position unassailable, and rendered any opposition to her policies futile.
