UK prime minister makes Cabinet appointments

President Donald Trump listens during his meeting with U.S. Mayors and Governors for a Infrastructure Summit in the State Dinning Room of the White House in Washington Thursday

"It would be absolutely the wrong thing to do now to react to a disappointing general election result, to create more political instability just at a time when we need stability for those negotiations", he added.

His buoyant mood came after Labour won 262 seats in the General Election, up from the 232 secured by Ed Miliband in 2015.

But after a poor campaign and an unexpectedly stiff challenge from the opposition Labour Party under leader Jeremy Corbyn, her plan went disastrously wrong, leaving her unable to form a sustainable government without DUP support.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, meanwhile, is reported to have told the Prime Minister that she needed to put "jobs first" in negotiating a new deal with Brussels, in comments seen as a coded attack on her focus on controlling immigration.

Mr Kenny, who will formally retire as Taoiseach in the coming days to be replaced by new Fine Gael leader Leo Varadkar, said he spoke with Mrs May about protecting the Good Friday Agreement.

He acknowledged that the government would be unable to get numerous measures promised in its election platform through Parliament.

Former Treasury chief George Osborne pulled no punches in his assessment of May's chances of survival as the conservative leader, though this may have been payback for his unceremonious dismissal from her cabinet a year ago.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who took the party from one Scottish seat to 13, said there would now have to be "consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave".

After the PM sent her Chief Whip Gavin Williamson to Belfast to negotiate a deal to keep the Conservatives in power, No. 10 said the DUP had agreed to the principles of an outline agreement.

Dana White refutes report he's off Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor deal
Times is putting out that, who else would be running the Mayweather, McGregor deal than me?", asked Dana. When asked about where the deal is at, White replied, "When I know, you'll know".

Downing Street says it hopes to finalize the deal next week, after Parliament resumes sitting.

The Conservatives' ability to adhere to such a commitment if they are wedded to a parliamentary alliance with the DUP has been questioned.

The DUP is similar to the "religious right" in the USA and takes a hard-line stance on social issues, such as same-sex marriage, which May's party introduced in the United Kingdom, and abortion.

Conservative lawmaker Nicky Morgan told ITV that she could support a confidence and supply arrangement with the DUP, but any closer deal would be "a step too far".

"Since 1990, the British government has been neutral in Northern Ireland, backing neither the unionists nor the nationalists", Powell, who was also former Prime Minister Tony Blair's chief of staff writes.

In a move that could jeopardise her frantic attempts to remain as Prime Minister, the DUP is accusing Downing Street of announcing a deal on its MPs voting with the Tories in the Commons before an agreement has been reached. The agreement called for a new Northern Ireland governing assembly with power shared between the largely Protestant pro-British unionists and Catholic pro-Irish republicans.

In a sign of growing impatience with the shambolic state of the British side of the talks, senior European Union sources said that if London insisted on talking about a free trade deal before the issues of its divorce bill, citizens rights and the border in Ireland were sufficiently resolved, it would be met with a blunt response.

The smaller parties agree to vote for, or possibly abstain on, the Queen's Speech set out by the minority government.

Olly Robbins, May's EU adviser, told his European counterparts: "The prime minister has directed that the procedures for preparing the negotiations for the formal withdrawal from the European Union should start as soon as possible". And I think that's what's important, I think that's what the public would expect. "This is still on".
