After UK Election, The Only 'Certainty' In Britain Is Uncertainty

Beleaguered British Prime Minister Theresa May was working to fill out the ranks of her minority government Saturday after an election that proved disastrous for her Conservative Party and complicating for Britain's exit from the European Union.

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. I think, you know, we see this election extremely effective Labour Party campaign, which has not allowed the Labour Party to win the election outright but has enabled it to deny the conservatives and Prime Minister May a parliamentary majority.

In contrast, the Labour Party ran a confident, youthful and forward-looking campaign that sent crowds of people to cheer party leader Jeremy Corbyn at rallies that kept growing. While the Northern Irish party will support the Conservative on key votes in parliament without an official deal of coalition, they are reportedly hoping for increased funding for the province as well as concessions for former British soldiers in return.

Campaigning was suspended twice - another unprecedented development for a United Kingdom election, according to Simon Usherwood of the University of Surrey, who said that the attacks could revive the trauma of IRA bombings of the 1980s.

The DUP is concerned that any arrangement by which Northern Ireland could remain in the European Union, a key demand of the rival Sinn Fein Party, could potentially split Northern Ireland from the rest of Britain.

He said that Labour under his leadership was "quite ready and able to put forward a serious programme of government", which he said "obviously has massive support in this country".

"As we are the party that won most seats and most votes, we are the only party that is in a position to form a government that can do that".

ROGER SCULLY: Well, I think a major thing that happened is that the Conservative Party effectively undermined the core message of their own campaign.

Specifically, he was asked why he took it upon himself to write memos of every visit and call he made with President Trump. First, Mr Comey found out he was sacked by watching TV. "The president feels completely and totally vindicated.

"It is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the legitimacy and ability to provide that", she said. May wanted to secure a fatter majority for her party so she could take on the looming Brexit negotiations with Europe without parliament throwing up what she considered to be objections and obstacles and what others countered was the normal democratic functioning of parliament. The leadership battle that May won last July in the aftermath of the Brexit vote and Prime Minister David Cameron's resignation showed how pitiless leading Tories can be, and they will now be smelling blood.

On Thursday night, British Prime Minister Theresa May had to stand next to a self-proclaimed intergalactic space lord wearing a home-made bucket on his head while her re-election as Member of Parliament for the constituency of Maidenhead was confirmed.

Many in the party believe she has been fatally wounded.

Ms Davidson, who became engaged to partner Jen Wilson in May 2016, later said she had received assurances from the PM over gay rights.

He added: "We want the best for Northern Ireland in terms of Brexit and in other areas, like how we strengthen the United Kingdom and how we tackle some of the economic issues".

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling sprang to Mrs May's defence, insisting she needed to stay in office for the national interest. "But at the same time, she's very, very weak.

That is made all the more hard when one side of the two diametrically opposed parties here has untold influence over the government".
