Senior Cabinet minister offer support to UK prime minister

Senior Cabinet minister offer support to UK prime minister

In a WhatsApp message to Conservative lawmakers, Johnson said, "Folks we need to calm down and get behind the prime minister".

It was a surprise move - Gove was sacked as justice minister by May past year after his bid to become party leader forced now-Foreign Minister Boris Johnson from the race, amid accusations of treachery and political backstabbing. "But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job". "He's in a permanent leadership campaign so I am not sure it qualifies as news", he said. The speech, written by May's ministers, includes a list of the laws the government hopes to get approved by Parliament over the coming year. "I believe that's important".

May came to lead her Conservative Party and the United Kingdom government after David Cameron resigned in the wake of the "Brexit" vote last June.

The change of position comes after Prime Minister Theresa May lost her majority in the House of Commons in a disastrous election last week.

Her new chief-of-staff Gavin Barwell has suggested she should take a different approach towards public spending after an anti-austerity Labour party election campaign denied her Conservatives a majority.

The Prime Minister's most prominent potential rival, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, sought to quash any suggestion that she would be ousted imminently.

In return, she won effusive pledges of loyalty, but she will have to sell her premiership to Conservative lawmakers at a meeting on Monday.

Ms Thornberry said it was unclear what elements of the Conservative manifesto would get into the Queen's Speech following negotiations between the Tories and DUP.

"The people of Britain have had a bellyful of promises and politicking", he wrote.

Prime Minister Theresa May must convince her Conservative lawmakers on Monday that she should stay as party leader after an election gamble that has plunged British politics into chaos a week before formal talks to leave the European Union begin.

The Prime Minister is then said to have made a "joke" about the food at the Conservative Party's campaign headquarters - "You've had to eat too much cheesy pasta".

"Theresa May is a dead woman walking".

Over the weekend, May's top two aides stepped aside.

"We understand there is a shared willingness from Britain to move ahead with these technical talks", he added.

Sir Michael Fallon, the defence secretary is among those in the Conservative party publicly exerting pressure for a re-think on Brexit.

Brexit will likely be on the agenda at the Paris meeting, after May confirmed she will stick to the timetable of negotiations.

The election result forced May to search for a deal with a small party of Northern Irish politicians, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), to prop up her government and vote through vital legislation.

The DUP leader is nearly certain to ask for greater investment in Northern Ireland as the price of a deal.

"I would like to see the DUP change its position, and indeed Northern Ireland as a whole change its position, on LGBTI [Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender intersex] issues".

Davis told BBC radio Monday that the government stood by its threat to "walk away" with no deal if talks - when they do eventually start - break down.

Some have even demanded that the Brexit process be delayed as the government's stance is clarified.

A confidence and supply agreement with the DUP would allow the Government to pass the Queen's Speech and the Budget. However, it's all about Britain's exit from the EU.

The PM's spokesman told reporters it was not for him to confirm the date - which has been in the Queen's diary since April - and that new Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom would be providing an "update" shortly.
