Boris Johnson denies plot to topple Theresa May

I am citing what I said there because it gives context to my current reflections on these elections.

Most interestingly, the biggest loser was not the Conservative Party but the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP), the pro-EU and secessionist party of Scotland (now controlling 35 seats), which lost 21 seats to the Tories.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit Secretary David Davis have all been kept on in their roles.

Damian Green, a lawmaker in the pro-EU wing of the party, was promoted to first secretary of state - effectively deputy prime minister.

If she is to succeed in delivering the end of Britain's European Union membership which 52 percent of the British public demanded a year ago, she must find a way to recapture the full support of her party because she will need their votes to pass legislation preparing for and ultimately enacting the departure. The swell in Labour support in the cities plainly had some connection to Brexit.

As for Bangladesh, is there anything we can learn from the way the campaign was conducted on both sides in the general elections in Great Britain or from the manner in which top politicians carried themselves about, and how no major parties shifted from their fundamental alliance and attempted unholy alliances just for poll-time benefits?

But rumors swirled of plots to oust May.

"I was expecting a Labour win, but was surprised by the hung Parliament".

Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of the party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power.

It comes after a stunning series of gains for Mr Corbyn's party as the Conservatives lost their majority in a snap election that spectacularly backfired.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability. The slogan suggested she would be no push-over in the negotiations, and many have also read the slogan as an opening gambit meant for the EU's ears as well as the voters.

"Honestly, it feels nearly like she is nearly not aware of what has happened in the last 24 hours", Conservative lawmaker Heidi Allen told LBC radio. The inherent weakness of a minority government raises the prospect of another election later this year, which would undoubtedly cause more turbulence.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she assumed Britain still wanted to leave the European Union and that talks must start quickly.

While Labour endorsed in its manifesto a break with Europe and even leaving the Single Market, a position it adopted to help cut immigration numbers, the party's leaders left considerable wiggle room and talked about renegotiating the rules of Single Market membership to allow some curtailing of Europeans migrating to Britain.

To stay in power, the Conservatives are seeking support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.

The spokesman indicated this would not be a formal coalition but a minority government with looser DUP support on a "confidence and supply basis".

Downing St. said the Cabinet will discuss the agreement on Monday.

"The Conservatives have not yet broken the British system of democracy, but through their hubris and incompetence they have managed to make a mockery of it", it said in an editorial.

Yet despite the majority of United Kingdom voters signaling their desire to depart, Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May faced stifling challenges to trigger the official process to leave the European, not just from the opposition in the House of Commons, but also in the House of Lords and the national judiciary.

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".

But they also seem to have accepted that it is for the British electorate to vote and decide on the composition of parliament and government.

To remove Mrs May from power, MPs could vote against the speech or pass a motion under the under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act 2011.

However, the Conservative Party were only 287 votes from forming a majority government and could have done so by winning four seats.
