Seven seats off the 326 seat-mark needed to command a majority, Mrs May is needs to try and form a minority government, the DUP, which increased its representation in Westminster from 8 to 10, would enable her to do this.

"Theresa May is a dead woman walking".

But she seems secure for the immediate future, because senior Conservatives don't want to plunge the party into a damaging leadership contest. Labour, the main opposition party, won 262. He said a new election might be necessary later this year or early in 2018. We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond.

However, Mrs Foster did not outline what her party would be seeking in return for bolstering the Conservatives through a "confidence and supply" arrangement.

She has called upon the support of the DUP in Northern Ireland to shore up her minority government.

The DUP is now meeting to discuss what it has said is a "messy" situation.

Voters in Scotland made their views clear at the polls, sending a resounding message to the Scottish National Party, which lost more than 20 seats.

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.

"Jews did not feel able to support Labour", he explained, saying Corbyn had given British Jews "no reason to think that there will be any change in his reluctance to deal with anti-Semitism in his party and I feel that the smell of antisemitism is still persisting in too many corners of the party".

May's office said Saturday principles of an agreement had been reached, but the two sides later clarified that they are still talking.

The weaker mandate couldn't come at a worst time for May, as she prepares to negotiate the "best possible deal" for the UK's departure from the European Union.

"So whether they can hold a weak leader in place - tactically, as it were - until they are ready to move, I don't know".

He said the Conservative election manifesto — which Hill and Timothy were key in drafting — was "a full assault on the core Tory voters, who are senior citizens".

Being a pro-union party, the joining up of forces may affect May's hopes for achieving a hard Brexit. "I'm sure many of them will want to vote for government measures needed to execute our departure from the European Union".

Confident of securing a sweeping victory, May had called the snap election to strengthen her hand in the European Union divorce talks.

"This is not the time for sharks to be circling. We are the largest party, we can govern". Johnson previously had his eyes on the top job in 2016, but stepped aside after his campaign manager Michael Gove nominated himself and said Johnson didn't have what it took to be leader.

The London Evening Standard, edited by former finance minister George Osborne who May sacked, splashed with a photo of her under the headline "Queen of Denial". "I think the only thing that political commentators can agree on is that we have uncertainty right now and nobody has any clue what shape this negotiation is going to take". The foreign secretary called the report "tripe" in a tweet and said he was supporting May. "That's not a matter for me", she said.

A party spokesman confirmed the resignation of Hill, a combative character who one former colleague said had helped create a "toxic" atmosphere at the heart of the government.

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

A veteran leftist who unexpectedly became Labour leader in 2015 on a wave of grassroots enthusiasm, but was seen by most of his own party's lawmakers as an electoral no-hoper, Corbyn beat expectations with a well-run campaign of striking policies.

That's what people voted for last June, that's what we will deliver, now let's get to work.

He later told the BBC it was it was "pretty clear who has won this election".
