Boris Johnson denies plot to topple UK PM Theresa May”

Forced into minority government, May is reaching out to Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which won 10 seats, in the hope of forging a working majority.

But her party is deeply divided over what it wants from Brexit, and the election result means British businesses still have no idea what trading rules they can expect in the coming years.

The moves buy May a temporary reprieve.

She is seeking a deal with a small Northern Irish party so that she can stay in power.

In a night that redrew the political landscape once again, the UK Independence Party (UKIP) - instrumental in campaigning for Brexit - lost millions of voters, prompting its leader Paul Nuttall to quit.

In an article for the Conservative Home website, Timothy conceded that the campaign had failed to communicate "Theresa's positive plan for the future", and to notice surging support for the opposition Labour Party.

Theresa May was clinging to power last night after her gamble on an early election went disastrously wrong and pro-EU MPs prepare to pounce on her weakness to try to stop the prime-minister from pursuing a "hard Brexit". The main opposition Labour Party took 262.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror he reveals: "I can still be Prime Minister".

On whether he would join Mr Corbyn's shadow cabinet, Mr Leslie said: "My worry is if I was to serve in the shadow cabinet there'd come a moment where something would come up which I'd disagree with, and these are my principles - whether it is to do with security or the running of the economy - I might have to then resign, who knows what happens".

"It was a disaster", he said. Instead, she has left Britain's government ranks in disarray, days before the divorce negotiations are due to start on June 19.

I wanted to achieve a larger majority.

Apart from Gove and her close ally Damian Green, promoted to Cabinet Office minister to oversee the day-to-day running of the government, May confirmed most of the ministers from her previous cabinet. The parallels are with 1974 when the Conservatives sought - as they have done this time - a 'who governs Britain?' mandate.

It added that "the logic leading to Mrs". Less than a year after May was propelled into Downing Street following Britain's surprise referendum decision to leave the European Union, party insiders were placing bets on how long she could last.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's two chiefs of staff have resigned in the wake of the Conservative Party's disastrous election result.

The DUP used a so-called "petition of concern" to veto the legalization of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland in 2016, the only area of the is not legal.

"We have made good progress but the discussions continue", DUP leader Arlene Foster said.

"I think her position is, in the long term, untenable", Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry told Sky News. The tabloid Sun said succinctly: "She's had her chips".

"And I think because of that he's commanded enormous respect from Labour MPs and the people of this country".

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.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he could still be prime minister, although his party has no obvious way to build a majority coalition.

Britain's typically pro-Conservative press questioned whether she could remain in power with the clock ticking on the two-year European Union divorce process.

Former Conservative party leaders have warned that any immediate leadership challenge would be too disruptive, but most commentators believe Mrs May can not survive in the long term.
