Friday News: Tory plan flops

THERESA MAY’S DAYS AS PRIME MINISTER MIGHT BE NUMBERED: May’s political position has been seriously weakened after Thursday’s election, which she had called to strengthen her hand for Britain’s exit talks from the European Union. Instead, the election saw her Conservatives losing their overall majority in Parliament. May, who has resisted calls for her to resign as leader, could now seek to form a government with support from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party. The Liberal Democrats’ leader says Prime Minister Theresa May “should be ashamed” for calling a snap election and joined calls for her to resign. Tim Farron said May had called Thursday’s election and gambled with Britain’s future “out of sheer arrogance and vanity,” adding: “If she has an ounce of self-respect she will resign.” He said that May’s version of a ‘hard Brexit’ was rejected by the British people, and that Brexit negotiations should now be put on hold.
