Majority Of Conservatives Want May To Resign As Prime Minister

Majority Of Conservatives Want May To Resign As Prime Minister

May's top ministers, including finance minister Philip Hammond, foreign minister Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis, will remain in their jobs.

May, a 60-year-old vicar's daughter, is now facing questions over her judgment in calling the election three years early and risking her party's slim but stable working majority of 17.

The Conservatives finished the election with 318 seats, eight short of the 326 needed for a majority, and the party is now dependent on the 10 DUP MPs to ensure legislation can be passed through a hostile House of Commons. It was a bid to shore up her majority in Parliament.

They blamed Downing Street joint chiefs of staff for the botched Conservative campaign and criticised the the Prime Minister for keeping decision making within an "inner circle".

Media commentators agreed she had been badly damaged, and some predicted she and her strategy for Brexit could struggle to survive.

Indeed, the prospect of a "hard" Brexit, by which the United Kingdom leaves with no deal, has shrunk with the Conservative majority, as it's a likely "red line" for the Democratic Unionist Party, the Northern Irish lawmakers May has turned to for support in Westminster. Instead, her authority has been diminished. They have ties to right-wing paramilitary groups and despise Jeremey Corbyn, leader of the Labour party, considering him to be an "IRA Cheerleader". "May stares into the abyss", wrote The Times, while Conservative-supporting The Sun tabloid said succinctly: "She's had her chips".

Yesterday, May declared her intention to lead a government with the support of the Northern Ireland MPs of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - describing the tie-up as a government of "certainty".

"The right can throw money at elections - we throw people", Uyterhoeven added.

Since any deal is not expected to involve a formal coalition, such talks may not hold up the formation of government.

Theresa May have called a snap election in April under the looming shadow of the Brexit negotiations with the European Union (EU), and in a stunning turn of events, she came out on the other side Thursday night, bruised and battered.

"We don't know when Brexit talks start", European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted Friday as the election results became clear.

A triumphant Corbyn - once written off by his opponents as a no-hoper - said May should resign and that he wanted to form a minority government because the country "had enough of austerity politics", the Washington Post reported. Beleaguered May is appointing new members of her government after several.

The DUP, which Mrs May referred to as her "friends", was non-committal in its initial remarks.

Now, if Theresa May really is going to sign up her party for a parliamentary arrangement of support for the Democratic Unionists, that appears to fundamentally undermine the entire basis of the Northern Ireland peace process.

With the complex talks on the divorce from the European Union due to start in 10 days, it was unclear what their direction would now be and if the so-called "Hard Brexit" taking Britain out of a single market could still be pursued.

In a final humiliation, the Conservatives lost the safe west London seat of Kensington, Britain's wealthiest constituency, to Labour by a mere 20 votes after a campaign that targeted the incumbent MP for her pro-Brexit stance. He urged May to "go and make way for a government that is truly representative of this country".

But Mr Corbyn said: "I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility".
