May reaches 'outline' power deal after election fiasco

It is certainly possible, and it's possible that there could even be a another general election, too.

Now the Scottish Conservatives and the DUP are urging her to consider trying for a softer Brexit. Where I frame it is, we want a tariff-free access to the European market, we also want to maintain a very important university and research collaboration in Europe, and there's a whole host of European agencies - Euratom, security, environment - in which we wish to be part of.

That's not entirely clear.

General elections in the United Kingdom must be held at least every five years, however, unlike in the U.S., Britain's constitutional law (there is no single constitution document) allows for elections before the five-year mark if a two-thirds majority of Parliament votes in favor of holding them.

What does this mean for the Labor Party?

The close result is a sharp reversal of the comfortable lead in the polls that the Conservatives had in April, when Ms. Since the Brexit vote, plotting MPs, millionaire campaigners and unelected Lords had been throwing all their energies, money and clout at stopping Brexit from happening.
