UK Prime Minister Theresa May arrives at an election campaign event in Wolverhampton, England, May 30, 2017. She reappointed Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Chancellor Philip Hammond and other top ministers - several of whom are potential plotters, and would-be replacements if she's deposed.
When May called the election in April, she did so with the Conservatives riding high in the polls, and the pound had surged on expectations that a big majority for the Conservatives would allow her to face down the so-called euroskeptics in her parliamentary ranks.
Just hours after her voice broke as she offered her first, shaky, 3 a.m. response to an election that would end with her Conservative Party losing its majority in Parliament, she was grim-faced and joyless as she stood in the midday sun in front of Downing Street and announced she would stay on as prime minister.
May leads the Toryparty which came up eight seats short of getting the 326 required to make up a majority of the British Parliament, creating a "hung parliament".
"Without the 14 seats won by the Scottish Conservatives, Mrs May's party would have been languishing on just 305 seats".
"The DUP need a deal because they are absolutely committed not to have a hard border with the Republic of Ireland", he told BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show.
The result calls into question May's future as leader of the party, and the country.
Her plan is to work with the Democratic Unionists, although DUP leader Arlene Foster kept her cards close to her chest, confirming only that the pair had spoken and would enter discussions.
May had advocated a "hard Brexit" - a withdrawal that includes a clean break from the European Union's single market and customs union. But May has already attracted criticism for the decision because of the DUP's position on same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
