British Prime Minister Theresa May says she'll be backed by a small Northern Irish party and is able to form a minority government after she lost an election gamble days before launching Brexit talks.
"I am sorry for those candidates and hard-working party workers who weren't successful but also particularly sorry for those colleagues who were MPs or ministers who had contributed so much to our country and who lost their seats and didn't deserve to lose their seats".
"I could not care less what people get up to in terms of their sexuality, that's not a matter for me, when it becomes a matter for me is when people try to redefine marriage". "So whether they can hold a weak leader in place - tactically, as it were - until they are ready to move, I don't know".
Former Chancellor George Osborne, sacked from the Cabinet by Mrs May and now editor of the Evening Standard, told ITV: "Clearly if she's got a worse result than two years ago and is nearly unable to form a government then she I doubt will survive in the long term as Conservative party leader".
Paul Nuttall resigned this morning as UKIP leader after the party won no seats. "I believe that's important".
Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, added that if the Conservative Party focuses on attacking Brussels and the European Union, "they will just get deeper in self-inflicted trouble".
Still, May's status remains shaky, at best, after the Conservatives' principal rival, the Labour Party, pulled off a dramatically positive showing at the ballot box Thursday.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he could still be prime minister, although his party has no obvious way to build a majority coalition. That is short of the 326 needed for an overall majority -- and 12 fewer than when May called the election. "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row", George Osborne, a former Conservative chancellor, tells the BBC.
European Council President Donald Tusk has warned there was "no time to lose" after May began the two-year countdown to Britain's withdrawal by triggering Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty on March 29. Theresa May supporter Sylvia McDermott was puzzling it over as she walked her dog in Regent's Park.
But a dismal campaign has left the Prime Minister fending off a mutiny within her own party.
Many of those Conservatives now opposing May are those who wanted to remain in the EU. The outlined accord "will be put forward for discussion and agreement" at cabinet meeting on Monday, one day before the new parliament is set to met, he added.
Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, replaces joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill. We want to do it quickly, respecting the calendar.
"Mail on Sunday tripe - I am backing Theresa may".
Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union could be put on hold after Britain's Conservative Party failed to secure a majority and a clear mandate in the General Election.
The deal sits uneasily with some Conservatives because of the DUP's opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.
The DUP confirmed to Sky News that it has not yet agreed to back the Tories on a "confidence and supply basis" - but talks are continuing. "My principal caution about any arrangement with the DUP is whether this could undermine the efforts of the UK Government to re-establish a power-sharing Executive in Northern Ireland".
She's then got to present a programme to Parliament.
But Anna Soubry, a Conservative member of parliament who campaigned ahead of last year's referendum for Britain to stay in the European Union, disagreed.
