European Union ready for Brexit negotiations, says Merkel

Minority governments like these are not as secure, as the party with more seats is dependent on the voting support of the less powerful party.

"As I reflect on the results I will reflect on what we need to do in the future to take the party forward", May said yesterday in a televised statement.

However she said he, along with foreign secretary Boris Johnson, home secretary Amber Rudd, defence secretary Michael Fallon and Brexit minister David Davis would remain in their posts.

Davidson, one of the few Conservatives to emerge as a victor from the election after she increased the party's presence in Scotland, said she had demanded, and received, "categoric assurance" from May that the policy would not change. Instead, Thursday's vote damaged her authority and made her negotiating position more vulnerable to criticism.

Aspirin 'major bleed' warning for over-75s
PPIs could reduce upper gastrointestinal bleeding by 70-90% in patients receiving long-term antiplatelet treatment. For the patients who are under 65, the hospital admissions due to the bleeding are 1.5 percent.

Traders and analysts in the City of London financial district spoke about feeling jaded, not just because they were up all night awaiting the results but because the UK´s second shock election result in a year throws the nature of Brexit talks into yet more doubt.

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, said he hoped there would be no further delays, and that the result of the United Kingdom general election would not have a "major impact on the negotiations we are desperately waiting for". As many Britons who voted "Leave" have come to realize, Brexit was a political Pandora's box. May called the snap vote in a bid to strengthen her mandate ahead of exit talks with the European Union. We want to end austerity and invest in this country and that's what we're going to do.

Mrs. May faces strong criticism within her own party for her weak performance during the election campaign and for unwisely exercising her prerogative by calling for the election this year, after only two years of a five-year parliament. For a General Election ostensibly called because of Brexit, discussions were limited to which leader was trusted to deliver it, rather than what "it" would look like. But the uncertainty of a hung parliament has raised concerns about Britain's ability to negotiate divorce terms by then, that would ensure that people and businesses are not stuck in legal limbo. He said British people have had enough of austerity politics and cuts in public spending, ruling out the potential for deals or pacts with other progressive parties in Parliament.

Having won all but three of Scotland's 59 seats in the British parliament in 2015, their share of the vote fell sharply and they lost seats to the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats.

Strong to severe storms possible for Father's Day
It is projected that light to heavy showers will continue to affect sections of all parishes this evening and tonight . A tornado or two and some hail may also be possible, according to the weather service's Storm Prediction Center.

"I am backing Theresa May". In light of the fact that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on the Prime Minister to resign as she had sought a mandate and not got it, and has asserted that his party is ready to form the government (with the help of others), it remains to be seen if the Tories can command a majority in the House.

Mrs May's Labour rival Jeremy Corbyn, once written off by his opponents as a no-hoper, said the Prime Minister should step down.

Rather than an official coalition, the partnership is likely to be on an issue by issue basis. The DUP is a socially conservative group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and had links to Protestant paramilitary groups during Ireland's sectarian "Troubles".
