Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat

Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat”

Other potential rivals such as Chancellor Philip Hammond remain within her government, and have so far mostly said little in public either before or after the election.

Now enraged Tory MPs are reportedly plotting to dislodge wounded Mrs May from No10 in a ruthless bid to revamp the party. Daily Mirror accused May of forming a "Coalition of crackpots", and pointed out that Northern Ireland-based Democratic Unionist Party - with whom May has formed the government - opposes gay marriage and abortion.

The recently concluded election in Britain has resulted in a hung parliament with Prime Minister Theresa May failing to achieve an absolute majority.

May was the first foreign leader to meet Trump at the White House - the two were photographed holding hands as they walked to a joint press conference during the visit, a physical hint to their close diplomatic ties. Many analysts said it was unlikely May could remain leader for long now that her authority has been eroded.

May's hardline stance on immigration, her questionable record on the environment, and interest in a special trade deal with the USA mirrors some of Trump's policies.

Earlier Friday, Tusk also urged Britain not to let its current political landscape impede its ability to make a deal on its way out the door.

Puerto Rican voters back statehood in questioned referendum
But the ballot's previous language prompted calls by opposition parties to boycott what they saw as a rigged vote. Despite the overwhelming vote to join the U.S. , nearly 80% of Puerto Rican voters avoided casting a ballot.

Her competence also came under fire following attacks in London and Manchester, amid warnings that police and security forces did not have the funds to do their job.

When asked about her position, he said: "That remains to be seen". I mean, this is Theresa May's difficulty, that there is this solid core of lawmakers in her party who are very much hard Brexit-ers, and they've been fighting this battle for many years. Last month, he called the Trump administration "erratic", saying that he wouldn't "pander to it" under a Labour government. Whatever the final shape of Brexit, an already hard process will now become even more problematic. Negotiations with the European Union are scheduled to begin later this month.

For some European leaders, the election result does complicate the situation.

But hours later, DUP leader Arlene Foster said her party's support to keep May in office was not yet a done deal - publicly at least. Until yesterday, Theresa May campaigned.

Some young voters said Labour had campaigned better than the Conservatives on social media. But she's been humiliated and massively weakened. Now the European Union negotiators know she hasn't got the full backing of the British people. May has lost all credibility on Brexit. It's just conceivable that May could deliver a Brexit success - whatever that means - and win back her shattered credibility without losing power.

Dr. Russell Foster, lecturer in European politics at King's College London says that as the United Kingdom leaves the EU, it will continue to secure trade deals with the Saudis, even if they are unpopular at home.

Blocked Trump Twitter followers claim First Amendment violation
Trump's Twitter use has drawn intense media attention for his unvarnished commentary about his agenda and attacks on critics. The White House announcing Tuesday that Trump's tweets are "official statements " also helps the argument, he said .

"All governments have been selling the Saudis arms since the 1970s, yet there is an expectation that it will stop".

"As I reflect on the results I will reflect on what we need to do in the future to take the party forward", May said on Friday in a televised statement. Now she is facing down all comers, from her own party and beyond.

"It is likely that this new government will nurture and possibly even strengthen UK-Israeli relations", she said.

Beyond Brexit, Labour plan a radical change in fiscal policy.

For many British voters, the feeling after the country's third major vote in as many years was weariness. "They didn't want to leave the EU". Press TV has interviewed Robert Evans, a former member of the European Parliament from London, and Ian Williams, an expert of the Foreign Policy in Focus from NY, on Britain's political outlook following the shock vote.

"For the man on the street, an immigrant from South Africa, Jamaica, Australia or another Commonwealth country would be preferable than a man from the Middle East", he explained.
