'Dead Woman Walking': Amid Election Fallout, Theresa May Stands On Shaky Ground

Posted June 13, 2017

The prime minister maintained that the Brexit talks would begin as planned next week, but with her party's loss of 13 seats and its parliamentary majority, May will rely on the support of the DUP vote by vote.

People demonstrate in Parliament Square against the possible Conservative and DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) coalition government following the Britain's general election result, in London, Saturday June 10, 2017. Some Conservative colleagues rallied to support her, but others said her political days were numbered after last week's election.

"From hubris to humiliation", said the left-leaning Guardian.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, one of May's most loyal supporters, said he disagreed with Osborne's description of her as a "dead woman walking" and he expected Conservative lawmakers to rally behind her.

"She does not have personal credibility anymore".

Timothy said he took responsibility for the Conservative manifesto, including a plan for elderly social care that caused a backlash among many core voters.

"But I would like to make clear that the freaky media reports about my own role in the policy's inclusion are wrong: it had been the subject of many months of work within Whitehall, and it was not my personal pet project".

Her office said later that the key finance, foreign, Brexit, interior and defense ministers would remain unchanged.

Stephen Gethins, the party's spokesman on Europe at Westminster, said Mrs May must rethink her Brexit plan after the snap General Election result on Thursday in which the Tories lost seats.

Indeed, the prospect of a "hard" Brexit, by which the United Kingdom leaves with no deal, has shrunk with the Conservative majority, as it's a likely "red line" for the Democratic Unionist Party, the Northern Irish lawmakers May has turned to for support in Westminster.

On Brexit, the DUP supports leaving the European Union but opposes a return to a "hard" border with Ireland, which could happen if May carries through her threat to walk away from the talks rather than accept a "bad deal".

"At such a critical time, the prime minister must be clear with the people about the deal she has stitched up with the DUP behind closed doors".

It said the campaign failed to get "Theresa's positive plan for the future across" or "notice the surge in Labour support, because modern campaigning techniques require ever-narrower targeting of specific voters, and we were not talking to the people who chose to vote for Labour".

But the PM faced mounting calls from within her own party to resign, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn claiming he should be allowed to form a minority administration after making significant gains. But against all odds, most commentators and most polls, the party took just over 40 percent of the vote - an impossibly good result and better than has been attained in decades.

"One of them is country, one of the others is LGBTI rights". Britain looks set for months of political chaos.

Conservative legislator Nigel Evans said the departure of the two aides was "a start", but there needed to be changes to the way the government functioned in the wake of the campaign. It was thought that two deadly terror attacks during the campaign - in London and the northern city of Manchester - would have an adverse effect on the fortunes of the Labour party, especially since it's leader was relentlessly smeared as a terrorist sympathiser.
