Democratic Unionists in Northern Ireland become election key

Most of the time, a traveller barely sees a sign noting the change in countries.

Back in 2011, the DUP called for a parliamentary debate on the possibility of bringing back the death penalty, arguing that 'recent horrific crimes throughout the United Kingdom have led many to question whether there are certain criminals whose crimes demand such a sentence'.

"The irony of this is that Theresa May is calling this a certainty government and talking about how it's delivering certainty", said Brian Klaas, a fellow in comparative politics at the London School of Economics.

"I certainly think that there will be contact made over the weekend, but I think it's too soon to talk about what we're going to do".

With the complex talks on the divorce from the European Union due to start in 10 days, it was unclear what their direction would now be and if the so-called "Hard Brexit" taking Britain out of a single market could still be pursued. A deal with the DUP would break through the 326 barrier May desperately needed to form a government.

"The key finance, foreign, Brexit, interior and defense ministers would remain unchanged". It's hard to predict how they'll react, he says.

At the time she could not have predicted that Theresa May's sky-high opinion poll lead over Labour would plummet. "May's alliance is a dishonourable coalition of chaos", tweeted British environmental and political activist George Monbiot. The U.K. government has already triggered EU Article 50 officially withdrawing from the union but trade negotiations still must follow.

But before the Queen can open the new parliament on June 19 - the same day Brexit talks were meant to start - May first needs to draw up a budget and flesh out the policies of her manifesto to put in the Queen's speech. But "we know when they must end". "Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations", Donald Tusk, leader of the EU's ruling council, wrote in a tweet.

Hundreds of people have said they will go to a protest outside Downing Street at 5pm on Friday, which was backed on Twitter by Owen Jones.

In a statement outside No 10, the Prime Minister sought to strike a tone of business as usual.

The Labour party gaining huge won 262 seats has urged May to resign and make way for it to form the minority government.

The DUP is skeptical of Europe and is pro-Brexit. "However, we need to do it in a way that respects the specific circumstances of Northern Ireland, and, of course, our shared history and geography with the Republic of Ireland".

The DUP holds just 10 seats in the British parliament but this would be enough to give May's Conservatives a working majority.

The party's leader, Foster, is known in Britain for her role in a scandal now dubbed, 'cash for ash.' According to the Guardian, Foster allegedly oversaw a government programme that misused public funds by overpaying businesses for using green heating systems.
