Boris Johnson denies plot to topple UK PM Theresa May

Parmenio Sano | 12 Giugno, 2017, 06:43

May is seeking a loose "confidence and supply" arrangement with the DUP's 10 MPs that would allow her to press ahead with a minority government, after losing her Commons majority in general election.

But with May's personal authority in tatters, there were reports that moves were afoot within her Conservative Party to dislodge her, while opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was insisting she could be ousted and he could replace her.

After confirming on Friday that her top five ministers, including finance minister Philip Hammond, would keep their jobs, Ms May must name the rest of her team, who will take on one of the most demanding jobs in recent British history.

George Osborne, former Conservative Chancellor and now a newspaper editor, branded Ms May a "dead woman walking" during a television interview and said the only question that remained was the precise timing of her replacement. "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row", former Conservative Chancellor George Osborne, who was sacked by May when she became prime minister a year ago, told the BBC.

Sir Michael did not rule out the possibility of co-operating with the Labour Party over the negotiations. He said a new election might be necessary later this year or early in 2018. The prime minister called this election on the basis she would need a stronger mandate to negotiate Brexit.

But after a poor campaign and an unexpectedly stiff challenge from Labour, her plan went disastrously wrong, leaving her unable to form a sustainable government without DUP support. "Discussions will continue next week to work on the details and to reach agreement on arrangements for the new Parliament".

"I think her position is, in the long term, untenable", another Conservative lawmaker, Anna Soubry, tells Sky News.

A fresh election is the only alternative available to British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives other than agreeing a deal with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to remain in government, a senior Conservative lawmaker said today.

"I think its quite possible there'll be an election later this year or early next year, and that might be a good thing, because we can not go on with a period of great instability", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr on Sunday.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said the government was not looking at a formal coalition but would seek assurances that the DUP would vote with May "on the big things" such as the budget, defence issues and Brexit. But we will act in the national interest and do what it right for the United Kingdom as a whole and in particular for Northern Ireland. "We want to do what is right for the whole of the United Kingdom".


Asked whether a Conservative-DUP deal would endanger the peace agreement, Irish Foreign Minister Charlie Flanagan told ITV: "Not necessarily the case".

The Labour leader accused Mrs May of overseeing a "chaotic" administration which is desperately trying to strike a deal with a party it has little in common with.

But he said Ireland was anxious for the Brexit talks to go ahead despite the turmoil in London, and for the deal that they produce not to damage peace in Northern Ireland.

May's Downing Street office had announced on Saturday that the "principles of an outline agreement" had been agreed with the DUP, only for the smaller party to contradict that account hours later.

Downing Street backtracked, saying she had "discussed finalising" a deal in the coming week.

Even if a deal is struck, May could struggle to get backing from parliament for her Brexit stance.

He said the Labour party will set out its own programme for government as an amendment to the Queen's Speech, focusing on austerity and a "jobs-first Brexit".

While the DUP campaigned to leave the European Union in last year's referendum, it has refused to endorse Mrs May's position that "no deal is better than a bad deal" - insisting that there must be no return of the "hard border" with the Republic.

Senior Conservative lawmaker Graham Brady said the prospect of being propped up by the socially conservative DUP, which is strongly focused on Northern Ireland's specific political complexities, was causing concern in his party. "I'm sure many of them will want to vote for government measures needed to execute our departure from the European Union".
