British PM May strikes tentative deal with N. Ireland party

17 June 2017

The blame-game has started within the Conservative Party.

A man picks up a newspaper reporting the development following Britain's general election at a shop in Westminster in London, Saturday June 10, 2017.

"It is likely that this new government will nurture and possibly even strengthen UK-Israeli relations", she said. Just after noon, she was driven the short distance from Downing Street to Buckingham Palace to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government - a formality under the British system.

With the smaller parties more closely aligned with Labour than with the Conservatives, the prospect of Corbyn becoming prime minister no longer seems to be fancy.

"The net effect of these conflicting pressures is likely to be the search for a pragmatic deal with the European Union that can pass the threshold of a significant majority across the whole parliament and not just in the Conservative Party", added Niblett.

The deal sits uneasily with some Conservatives because of the DUP's opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.

But the wooing of the DUP risks upsetting the political balance in Northern Ireland by aligning London more closely with the pro-British side in the divided province, where a power-sharing government with Irish nationalists is now suspended.

It is thought May would seek some kind of informal arrangement with the DUP that could see it "lend" its support to the Tories on a vote-by-vote basis, known as "confidence and supply", the BBC report said. Downing St. says the Cabinet will discuss the agreement Monday. They quit Saturday after becoming a focus of blame for the Conservatives' election disaster.

Although winning the most seats, her centre-right party lost its majority in parliament, meaning it will now rely on support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

Hammond also annoyed many Conservatives who want a clean break with the European Union by repeatedly stressing the need for a Brexit deal that allows companies to keep on hiring the migrant workers they need.

"Gavin will have an important role to play in that".

May also reappointed an old adversary - Michael Gove, a former rival for the Conservative leadership whom May fired from the Cabinet when she took office a year ago.

Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom where same-sex marriage is not legal.

In contrast, the opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose party gained at least 29 seats in Parliament, has openly shared his misgivings about the U.S. leader. He only just made it back into parliament with a majority of 777.

People living in Britain are waking up to uncertainty as Prime Minister Theresa May ignored calls to stand down after the ruling Conservative Party lost an overall majority in parliament in a general election on Thursday. May's office has said that the most senior Cabinet members - including Treasury chief Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd - will keep their jobs, but she is expected to shuffle the lower ranks of ministers.

MARTIN: But she is talking to a party out in Northern Ireland called the Democratic Unionists in an effort to form a coalition that would allow her to govern.

Labour's election result should not be seen as a "famous victory" and was "not good enough", says former shadow chancellor Chris Leslie.

SCULLY: We now have a deeply uncertain situation with regard to the British government, and it is extremely hard to see what sort of, you know, progress can be made in these talks.
