British PM Theresa May says she has no intention of resigning

May, jolted by the electoral setback, however, remained defiant to calls for her resignation and vowed to form a minority government with the informal backing of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). The government she has formed could hardly be more out of touch with an electorate that has moved sharply to the left.

May's weakened position in the party rules out big changes to the Cabinet lineup. Theresa Mays most senior cabinet ministers are thus set to keep their jobs, including the chancellor of the Exchequer, the home secretary, the foreign secretary, the Brexit secretary and the defense secretary.

Already UK bookmakers are slashing the odds of a possible leadership challenge, with Boris Johnson once again emerging as a potential front runner.

"The election result was a comprehensive rejection of the Tory plans for an extreme Brexit - and single market membership must now be back on the table", he said.

May confirmed she meant to start talks with the Europeans on June 19 as planned, promising to "get to work".

At an election night party at the British ambassador's residence in Washington, talk of a "Prime Minister Johnson" grew as results showing the Conservatives losing their 15-seat majority in Commons were successively posted.

The UK election of 2017 ended in a hung parliament after the ruling-Conservative Party of Prime Minister Theresa May failed to retain its majority, however, British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would lead a minority government. Labour surpassed expectations by winning 262.

And although it has a female leader, it remains an overwhelmingly male, white bastion and is certainly more conservative than the Conservatives.

But her campaign unraveled after a policy u-turn on care for the elderly, while Corbyn's old-school socialist platform and more impassioned campaigning style won wider support than anyone had foreseen. "I think we'll know very shortly".

For instance, Menon said, some pro-EU Conservative legislators may wait until the Brexit legislative program comes to Parliament to start attacking it.

Ms Davidson clearly plans to use her new-found influence to try to affect the Brexit negotiations as well, suggesting that she believes the United Kingdom should try to remain in the European Union single market.

Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers to go 3-0 up
He's been an unbelievable player in this league for a long time, and I think ... he senses this is his time, his moment, his team. For the fourth consecutive time, the Warriors failed to win a closeout game against the Cavs. "Both those guys were incredible ".

"We will happily have the support of members of the Labour Party as well on some of our policies", he said.

Natural bedfellows in a Conservative-led coalition, perhaps, but with their staunch commitment to an open border with neighboring southern Ireland, they could yet prove a decisive and outsized force in Brexit negotiations - and by virtue, the success or failure of the Conservative Party's key manifesto pledge.

Within hours of the results being announced, reports suggest May had teamed up with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

Oettinger said that "time for Brexit negotiations is getting tight" and added that "they must be closed in October 2018" to allow for the complicated approval process in the member states to run its course ahead of the official two-year deadline.

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

"The Prime Minister has tonight spoken with the DUP to discuss finalising a confidence and supply deal when Parliament returns next week".

The DUP has reportedly promised to lend the Tories their 10 votes - not in coalition but as a looser arrangement.

There were also misgivings about relying on the DUP, which strongly opposes same-sex marriage and abortion. "Let's put our minds together on striking a deal", Michel Barnier said.

"There's a possibility of voting the Queen's Speech down and we're going to push that all the way". Voters ages 18 to 24 appear to have voted heavily in favor of Labour.

"I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility", Corbyn told the Sunday Mirror, predicting that there could be another election within months. "I and other senior colleagues have made that clear to her", said defense minister Michael Fallon. "This is still on".
