British Prime Minister Theresa May's top aides resign after election fiasco

"I was surprised that Jeremy Corbyn added two percentage points, or got two percentage points, more than I had expected and I did say that I would eat this book", Mr Goodwin said while holding up a copy of his Brexit: Why Britain voted to leave the European Union.

With the results in from all 650 constituencies, the Conservatives won 318 seats - down from 331 at the 2015 election - while Labour was on 262, up from 229.

A source close to the DUP said the party was seeking more funding for the province and concessions for former British soldiers in exchange for supporting May.

May's Downing St. office said Conservative Chief Whip Gavin Williamson was in Belfast Saturday for talks with the DUP "on how best they can provide support to the government". "Whoever it is, they are going to have to make deals with other political parties, and nearly every other political party that has an MP in the new parliament wants a softer version of Brexit", says French.

Former Treasury chief George Osborne - who was sacked by May past year - called May a "dead woman walking", and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he was ready to contest another election at any time.

British media have reported that moves were afoot within May's party to dislodge her after her election gamble - aimed at increasing her party's majority in parliament ahead of Brexit talks - backfired. "If she has an ounce of self-respect, she will resign", said Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, while Conservative M.P. and former minister Anna Soubry said May "is in a very hard place... she now has to obviously consider her position".

Old-school institutional politics made a dramatic comeback this week, in two disparate and seemingly disconnected events on opposite sides of the Atlantic. That means the DUP would back the government on confidence motions and budget votes, but it's not a coalition government or a broader pact.

Further, May will rely for a working majority in the House of Commons on ten pro-Brexit lawmakers from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.

Finally, the Apple Watch can now be paired with select gym equipment so data is more reliable and accurate. There's also new full-face album art designs arranged in a deck of cards that are easier to swipe through.

However the Government's adherence to that position will clearly be brought into question if its control of Parliament is dependent on a deal with the DUP, endangering ongoing talks to try reach a power-sharing deal in the region.

The arrangement with the DUP will make governing easier, but it makes some Conservatives uneasy.

"The taoiseach (Mr Kenny) indicated his concern that nothing should happen to put the Good Friday Agreement at risk and the challenge that this agreement will bring", an Irish government spokesman said.

The British government does not have long to ink a deal. Its cartoon depicted May in a coffin with her feet sticking out and a speech bubble saying "Nothing has changed", a line she repeated several times as she reversed a key policy on social care during the campaign. By tradition, defeat on a Queen's Speech vote topples the government.

On Friday, Owen Smith, who failed in his attempt to oust Mr Corbyn in September, said: "I was wrong about Jeremy Corbyn".

Labour missed an "open goal" to beat Theresa May and should not pretend it achieved a "famous victory", a former shadow chancellor has said.

Their departures were seen as a Downing Street bid to stave off a far more dramatic resignation: that of the prime minister herself.

In a statement yesterday morning the Labour leader urged Ms May to resign so he could form a minority government.
