Speaking outside Downing Street this morning, PM Theresa May confirms that following a meeting with HRH The Queen that the Conservative Party will begin talk to see if the parties can work together with DUP to form a Government.
During her speech, the Prime Minister said
“..be able to work together in the interest of the country.. with our friends and longstanding allies”
A Damaged Prime Minister
Laura Kuenssberg reporting for the BBC said that the arrangement will not be a formal one and described the PM as ‘damaged’.
Last night we witnessed David Dimbleby reel off interview refusals from top cabinet ministers & Ian Duncan Smith quotes as stating last night that the party needs to ‘remain silent on this’, shortly before Theresa May reached the Head Quarters.
We are still yet to see any support for her from the Conservative Party, following the many calls for her to go from the Labour Party, the Lib Dems and admissions throughout the night about her ‘Disastrous Campaign’.
Cabinet in Chaos
Due to 8 ministerial seat losses, including the cabinet minister for the Brexit Manifesto for the Conservatives, we await the reshuffle announcement.
