Petition against Tory-DUP deal gets 400k signatures

Petition against Tory-DUP deal gets 400k signatures”

Ruth Davidson, the Conservative leader in Scotland, said she had asked May for assurances that there would be no attack on gay rights after a deal with the DUP.

May has faced calls for her to resign but she has instead vowed to form a minority government with Northern Ireland's DUP (Democratic Unionist Party).

Britain has been plunged into political chaos after a shock result in Thursday's general election that saw the ruling Conservative Party's majority wiped out.

The DUP, whose 10 seats would allow the government to get measures through Parliament, is a socially conservative pro-British Protestant group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and includes both environmentalists and climate-change deniers among its senior ranks.

This is expected to mean a softer Brexit negotiating position than may have been the case under a Conservative majority.

Michael Gove made a shock return as environment secretary, having been sacked by Mrs May in one of her first acts in Downing Street after he effectively scuppered the Tory leadership hopes of Mr Johnson.

There was one clear victor in the 2017 general election in the United Kingdom among a field in which nobody else actually won.

Many others have been less vocal, but with 12 fewer Conservative seats in parliament than before the election, you can be sure many are smarting if not seething, meaning a leadership challenge could soon be on the cards.

British media reported that moves were afoot within May's Conservative Party to dislodge her, while opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who exceeded expectations in Thursday's vote, called for her to go and said he could form a government.

"It is quite possible there will be an election later this year or early next year and that might be a good thing because we can not go on with a period of great instability", he told the BBC.

Money for Northern Ireland will undoubtedly be part of their demands, and Mrs May will expect that.

The DUP campaigned for Brexit but its manifesto argued for maintaining a "seamless and frictionless" border with Ireland. Another potential problem is the planned restart of negotiations for power-sharing in the province.

But without an opinion from the attorney general, he says they don't feel like they can tell women not to sunbathe topless. Ocean City officials, however, quickly waded into the sand and said that women should keep their tops on.

Catholic Irish republicans Sinn Fein won seven, with a sitting independent unionist winning another, as more moderate Irish nationalist and British unionist parties were wiped out.

The nursery worker said he was "angry" that Mrs May had done a deal with the DUP, although he admitted he did not initially know who they were. I think we need to see the final make-up of parliament and then we'll reflect on that.

May wanted to win explicit backing for her stance on Brexit, which involves leaving the EU's single market and imposing restrictions on immigration while trying to negotiate free trade deal with the bloc.

The party will also probably seek more guarantees for agriculture post-Brexit to assuage the concern of farmers after the current deal runs out in five years' time. May for staying on in Downing Street after failing to secure a majority government. In the field, the candidate who came nearest to glowing in victory was Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, whose positive campaign and strength of character came shining through.

Corbyn told voters in Islington North that it was time for May to "make way" for a government that would be "truly representative of the people of this country". The party won 262 seats in the election - up by 30 from 2015.
