No change in Theresa May's Brexit plan

"We will continue to take the fight to the Tories and I will be out campaigning around the country in Conservative marginals in those extra seats we need to gain to deliver the government for the many that nearly 13 million people voted for last week".

May's weakened position in the party ruled out big changes.

"However, the Conservative Party's reduced share of the vote may indicate a higher likelihood that a "softer" form of Brexit might now be pursued, involving compromises with the European Union that Ms".

Jeremy Corbyn mocked Theresa May over her disastrous election gamble today as they returned to the House of Commons. Johnson — a former Tory leadership contender — denied he was planning a leadership challenge.

Sources who attended the meeting said Mrs May apologised several times over the Tory MPs who lost their seats following the June 8 election.

The Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) is meeting on Tuesday evening for the first time since the June 8 election, in which far-left outsider Corbyn received a stunning and unexpected 40 percent of the vote. Labour, with 262 seats, is similarly a loser and victor at the same time: in second place, but with a result much better than expected.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability.

But the other Stormont parties have warned that any deal between the DUP and Conservatives could make restoring power sharing more hard.

They continued that the Prime Minister apologised to backbenchers following the election result and told them: "I'll serve you as long as you want me".

A Labour spokesman said that uncertainty over the date of the State Opening showed the Government was "in chaos", while Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said it was "an utter humiliation" for the PM. More delays would nearly certainly carry a cost, and there's something to May's stated desire to "get on with the job" - but there's also an edge of desperation to it.

May called the election called in a bid to strengthen her mandate ahead of European Union exit talks.

With May's Conservative party not in overall control of the House Commons and with a new government yet to be formed, politicians in favor of a "soft Brexit" - which is likely to include remaining part of the single market and customs union - believe the impasse offers an opportunity to get their way.

She has said telephone talks had been "productive" but told her MPs the DUP would not get a "veto" on key policies.

Pressure on Theresa May to pursue a more cross-party approach to Brexit with greater focus on the economy is growing amid reports of secret talks between Cabinet ministers and Labour MPs.

The two sides are looking to form a "confidence and supply" arrangement.

In a meeting lasting around 90 minutes, the Prime Minister updated her top team on the on-going discussions with the Unionists to secure an agreement propping up the Tory minority government. For example, the DUP blocked same-sex marriage being implemented in Northern Ireland and has stood in the way of abortion rights being extended to women there.

Ms May has promised to start the formal Brexit talks next week, but her authority has collapsed since the election result and opponents took her woes as a chance to push back against her Brexit strategy.

Foster's rivals in Northern Ireland, such as Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams, have objected, describing any partnership between the Conservatives and the DUP as "a coalition of chaos".

Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny tweeted Sunday that he had spoken with May "and indicated my concern that nothing should happen to put (the Good Friday Agreement) at risk".

For the British Government to now create a political alliance with one of those parties clearly poses a conflict of interest, at the very least, and, at its worst, could derail the progress made through the Good Friday Agreement and the establishment of the Northern Ireland Assembly entirely.

Additional delay may be caused by the fact the speech read by the sovereign is written on goatskin parchment paper, a long-lasting archival paper which contains no actual goatskin, but requires several days for the ink to dry.
