Angela Merkel says EU ready for Brexit negotiations and wants quick resolution

THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY could turn to the Democratic Unionist Party to form a government.

His LSE colleague Paul Kelly said the result would weaken May's hand in Brussels, where she is due to attend a summit on June 22 and 23. To hear more about all this, we called Roger Scully once again.

Talk in Britain that a different ruling coalition could seek a "softer" Brexit than May has proposed, possibly seeking to remain in the single market, is also problematic for the EU.

Another London-based Benelux diplomat also cautioned about such an outcome, saying the smaller the majority for May, "the more likely it is that the government will run into difficulty with MPs, maybe even a rebellion in parliament".

"I'm afraid we ran a pretty awful campaign", Soubry said.

Gina Miller, a leading voice for Britain staying in the European Union, said the vote was a sign that voters were rejecting May's proposition of a "hard Brexit". Anything less than a big increase in the Conservatives number of parliamentary seats would have been considered a failure, but May and her party were confident of a landslide victory.

Calls for Trump state visit to be cancelled after London attack tweets
Mrs May had faced calls to distance herself Mr Trump for his incendiary remarks but for two days failed to directly address them. Donald Trump Jr . joined his father in criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan in an interview that aired Tuesday on ABC.

Elmar Brok, a prominent German conservative member of the EU parliament, said Europeans would be disappointed May had failed to gain the majority that could have helped her override her party hardliners: "Now no prime minister will have that room for manoeuvre", he said.

As the dust settles, one issue will dominate investors' concerns above all: whether Britain is more or less likely to retain privileged access to the EU's single market, the destination for most of the country's exports.

"Maybe there won't be a hard Brexit", Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge Brende said. "The turnout among voters could well determine whether we have a clear Tory or a close Tory win - the group for which that is particularly uncertain is younger voters who are in general much more pro-Labour", said polling expert Professor John Curtice of Strathclyde University.

First came infighting among Conservatives about the kind of Brexit they wanted and unrealistic expectations about the deal they could get, then an election campaign in which May took personal aim at Brussels and accused the European Union of meddling in the polls.

At the time she was riding high in the polls and she pushed a tough message on Brexit on the campaign trail, saying she was planning to be a "bloody hard woman" in Brussels.

"We will fulfil the promise of Brexit together and over the next five years build a country in which nobody is left behind". "Such significant political uncertainty will further dampen sentiment and confidence, exacerbating the weakness we have already been starting to see over recent months", the UBS analysts said. The parties must reach an agreement by March 2019, if the United Kingdom is to avoid crashing out of the bloc with no deal.

Simona Halep defeats Karolina Pliskova in French Open semifinals
Halep won 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to reach her second Grand Slam final, having finished runner-up here to Maria Sharapova in 2014. Ostapenko recorded 50 winners and overcame 45 unforced errors to dispatch Bacsinszky, who turned 28 on Thursday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who promised to be a "bloody hard woman" during her country's upcoming divorce negotiations with the European Union, has been ruthlessly reminded that British voters can be bloody hard as well.

It long seemed like Britain could not get out of the European Union fast enough.

The Downing St. resignations came as May worked to fill jobs in her minority government and replace ministers who lost their seats on Thursday.

Conservative member of parliament Anna Soubry was the first in the party to disavow May in public, calling on the prime minister to "consider her position".

Mrs Foster, flanked by each one of her representatives in the House of Commons, did not take any questions after confirming plans for talks with the Conservatives.

"The prime minister has spoken with me this morning", Foster said.

May Still in Search of Deal to Form a Government
The Labour leader also said he thought it was quite possible there could be an election later this year, or early next year, which he thought "might be a good thing".
