Ms Foster has refused to resign over a scandal from her time as finance minister when it was found she had personally campaigned to keep a government-backed renewable-energy scheme opened despite it overspending by £400m (€455m). Because she went into the this with such a huge lead, thinking she could all but wipe out real opposition to their plans.

The fallout from Thursday's snap general election, which left her Conservative Party bereft of their majority, also prompted her to seek out a relatively tiny ally that could have vast sway over what happens next in the United Kingdom.

With all 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats; the Labour Party had 262 seats, followed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party on 35.

May's office said on Saturday principles of an agreement had been reached but the two sides later clarified that they were still talking. MONDAY, JUNE 19 - Brexit talks begin Talks on Britain's exit from the European Union are due to begin.

That timeline now looks even more ambitious than before, not least because May's electoral debacle has emboldened those within her own party who object to her "hard Brexit" approach of leaving the European single market and customs union.

But the result is expected to lead to anger within the Conservative Party, where many deemed the abrupt calling of the election unnecessary, and May's future is uncertain.

But Mr Corbyn said: "I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility".

"This is not the time for sharks to be circling". She had taken voters for granted and seemed to avoid both the public and the press during her campaign.

Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry said May should "consider her position", while another, Heidi Allen, said she may not last six months. "That's not a matter for me", she said.

"Get yourself and your mates down to Downing Street tonight and let her know we don't want her anymore".

Fallon said the government wanted a "new partnership with Europe that is careful about the trade we already do with Europe, that comes to some agreement on the immigration that we can accept from Europe".

In other developments Sunday, the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson issued a statement dismissing reports he was being encouraged to challenge May for her job.

The smaller parties - Liberal Democrats and Democratic Unionist Party - won 12 and 10 seats respectively.

Earlier it was reported that a formal coalition between the DUP and conservatives will not, however, the DUP is committed to maintaining the Tory government - in the case that everyone will agree.

It has also blocked attempts to change Northern Ireland's strict laws on abortion.

"There has been a lot of hyperbole about the DUP since Thursday, a lot of things said", DUP leader Foster told Sky News. We've only just scratched the surface here. And at the end of the day, young people who most people assumed wouldn't turn out to vote, as they don't usually in this country, turned out en masse.

Labour's Corbyn told the Sunday Mirror newspaper he saw a route to power himself, although it was not clear how he would command the support of a majority of members of parliament.

The Conservative Party has depended on Irish politicians before: Prime Minister John Major relied on support from the Ulster Unionist Party to shore up his shaky government in the mid-1990s. Based on current seat projections, Labour and its potential likely allies will fall short in getting a majority.
