Queen's Speech could be delayed, says Damian Green

Talks come after Mrs May told Tory MPs: "I'm the person who got us into this mess and I'm the one who will get us out of it".

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who is also touted to replace Mrs May should she be forced out, wrote in The Sun newspaper that people "have had a bellyful of promises and politicking", and that "now is the time for delivery - and Theresa May is the right person to continue that vital work".

That is because she is also trying to schedule the formal debate of her new government programme for next week and had on Monday yet to agree a final deal with the small Northern Irish Protestant party on whose support she will rely in parliament.

"What I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job".

They continued that the 60-year-old told the backbenchers: "I'll serve you as long as you want me".

The Conservative party has always been divided on this issue, and with the resignation of Ms.

Scottish Conservatives sharply increased their representation in the Westminster parliament last week, in contrast to the party's losses in England, strengthening the influence of their leader Ruth Davidson within the party.

Mr Adams said the republican party is ready to do business with the DUP and the other main political parties in a bid to salvage devolution. He said a new election might be necessary later this year or early in 2018.

May planned meetings Monday with her new cabinet, which she reshuffled modestly over the weekend as she mostly kept out of the public eye.

Senior Conservative Party figures called for a more collegial approach to government after her tightknit inner circle failed to deliver an expected victory.

Before the election, May had signaled that Britain would make a "clean break" from the European Union, meaning it would withdraw from the single market and the customs union.

The Britons plan to start Brexit talks as scheduled despite the ongoing political turmoil in the country.

Since coming to power, May has advocated for a "hard" Brexit, which would entail Britain leaving the European single market and cutting immigration from the bloc.

"Going overseas and being seen to be the prime minister and talking to the president of France... is a classic move to shore up authority at home", said Colin Talbot, professor of government at the University of Manchester. "Theresa May is a dead woman walking".

The move might offer hope to Conservative lawmakers who have criticised her style of government.

Her constant repetition of moronic mantra like "strong and stable government" and "coalition of chaos" began to grate after the first 200 times.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has disclosed that senior ministers had confronted Mrs May and told her she had to change the way she operates.

Unable to govern without support after the snap election, she has yet to secure the backing of a eurosceptic Northern Irish party with 10 parliamentary seats.

The speech would be at risk of being voted down if the DUP did not reach an agreement with the Tories. "It may not be on the Monday because we've also got the Queen's Speech that week and I will have to speak in that and so on". The DUP is strongly opposed to single-sex marriage and abortion, at odds with Conservative policies.

"I asked for a categoric assurance that if any deal or scoping deal was done with the DUP there would be absolutely no rescission of LGBTI rights in the rest of the United Kingdom, in Great Britain, and that we would use any influence that we had to advance LGBTI rights in Northern Ireland", Davidson told the BBC.

Large global banks in London plan to move about 9,000 jobs in the next two years to financial centres that will stay in the European Union, including Frankfurt, Paris and Dublin, so they can continue selling their services across the bloc after Brexit, according to a Reuters' tally of job warnings.
