EU fears Brexit might delay after shock Britain vote

"They are wrong and they need to understand why we take those positions from a faith point of view and why we want to protect the definition of marriage", she said.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said she has received assurances from the Prime Minister over gay rights should the Tories do a deal with Democratic Unionist Party.

As Britons awoke to news that Prime Minister Theresa May would have to turn to the Democratic Unionist Party for support after losing her parliamentary majority, the Northern Irish party's website crashed under the weight of curiosity.

An arrangement of British daily newspapers are photographed as an illustration in London on June 9 showing front page stories about the exit poll results of the snap general election.

Earlier on Saturday May lost her two closest aides as she struggled to reassert her leadership, having called an election three years early hoping to strengthen her hand going into Brexit negotiations - only to see the gamble backfire spectacularly. Current projections give the DUP 10 seats in the House of Commons and the Conservatives 319, enough to form a working majority.

DC, Maryland to sue Trump for involvement in his business while president
The suit is claiming that the GSA changed its stance on allowing Trump to remain on the lease after an increase in their budget. The litigation is similar to a case filed this year by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics , a Washington watchdog group.

She also apologised to colleagues who had "contributed so much to our country" and "didn't deserve to lose their seats".

"Trying to make that change to Number 10 was more hard than she possibly anticipated", Perrior said.

But I think the problem is this - that Theresa May, to get Brexit through the House of Commons, is going to have to pass, I don't know, maybe 20 big laws and maybe thousands of minor laws to extricate Britain from the European Union. "Thatcher put me out of work when she closed pits", said Jim Smith, 74, who lost his job at a mining machinery firm.

Analysts say May's electoral debacle could reopen what had seemed largely a closed debate - both with pro-EU members of Parliament trying to take advantage of the prime minister's weakness and Euro-skeptic government ministers threatening her if she dares water down a Brexit deal. "I think he was transformed", said Kershaw, 72, who voted Conservative despite her reservations and past year voting to remain in the EU.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has urged her to resign and allow him to form a minority administration, declaring: "We are ready to serve this country".

Talks on the resumption of power sharing to recommence today
A No10 spokeswoman said: "Prime Minister Theresa May spoke on the phone to Taoiseach Enda Kenny today". The Secretary of State said the government remained "four square" behind the Good Friday accord.

Britain was supposed to wake up Friday with the political clarity, finally, to begin formal negotiations to leave the European Union, a process scheduled to start in 10 days.

"It will work to keep our nation safe and secure by delivering the change that I set out following the appalling attacks in Manchester and London - cracking down on the ideology of Islamist extremism and all those who support it".

"We want to negotiate quickly, we want to stick to the time plan, and so at this point, I don't think there is anything to suggest these negotiations can not start as was agreed".

She said the two parties had enjoyed "a strong relationship" over many years.

Business and investors want clarity about the terms of Brexit as soon as possible, because they need to know what kind of access United Kingdom companies will have to Europe's vast free trading area in future. The currency has been highly volatile in the last year, from $1.50 a year ago before the Brexit vote to below $1.18 briefly in October. Check back for updates and follow BuzzFeed News on Twitter.

Angelique Kerber upset by Ekaterina Makarova at French Open
Makarova nailed three games in a row into the second set, before Kerber broke in the fourth game in an unfamiliar manner. She had surgery on her left hand - the one she plays tennis with - after the knife attack in the Czech Republic.

This is a developing story.
