Boris Johnson denies plot to topple UK PM Theresa May

Saul Franklin | 14 June, 2017, 06:54

Beleaguered May is appointing new members of her government after several.

"Theresa May has been to the palace".

It would also in theory make it cheaper for foreign people and companies to spend and invest in Britain, though analysts say any gains would likely be offset by the chilling effect the general uncertainty will have on business investment. 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.

The Tories, as they are commonly known in the United Kingdom, will now have to govern as a minority party, or try to form a coalition government, or force another general election. However, and according to national polls, the opposition Labour party, headed by Jeremy Corbyn, which was down by 18 points at the time, was behind by a little under eight points in the latest national polls.

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 majority of 17. The main opposition Labour Party took 262.

A party spokesman confirmed the resignation of Hill, a combative character who one former colleague said had helped create a "toxic" atmosphere at the heart of the government.

Instead of opting for a post-election shuffle, the Prime Minister retained key figures in her cabinet.

It's unclear what Theresa May's next move will be, but pundits are suggesting she will likely strike a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party, who now hold 10 seats.

May's Downing St. office said Conservative Chief Whip Gavin Williamson was in Belfast Saturday for talks with the DUP "on how best they can provide support to the government".

Owen Paterson, a senior Conservative lawmaker, said "let's see how it pans out", when asked about May's future.

Northern Ireland is the only part of the U.K.in which same-sex marriage is illegal.

It would represent a remarkable turnaround in Labour and Jeremy Corbyn's fortunes and a spectacular decline in the popularity of Theresa May's Conservatives since the Prime Minister's decision to call the snap election.

DUP leader Arlene Foster told a news conference later that her party will begin discussions with the Tories, suggesting that the deal is not yet in the bag.

"I could not care less what people get up to in terms of their sexuality". But he also stressed he would not enter into any "pacts or deals" with other parties.

She claims that this government will get the country through the Brexit talks and will lead Britain forward.

Britain's typically right-wing press savaged May over the election outcome, questioning whether she will be able to remain in power after a result that leaves her reliant on uniting rival factions within her party to deliver Brexit.
