Stonewall: Conservatives must not derail LGBT equality for deal with DUP


She said that she will work with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party and that her government will lead the country forward at a "critical" time.

According to reports, the party only committed to prop up the Conservatives if they agreed to pursue a soft Brexit and remain in the single market.

"Theresa May has been in British politics for quite a long time, but she is not somebody with a huge media profile or who is associated with particular policy positions", Goodwin told ABC News ahead of election day.

Not only that, but the self-styled "strong and stable" leader of the Conservative Party only managed to avoid a complete political wipeout thanks to an astonishing set of electoral results in her party's favour in Scotland - a constituent nation of the United Kingdom which used to revel in the jibe that there were more pandas in the land of whisky and heather - just one - than there were Conservative lawmakers. But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil as no clear victor emerged.

And although it has a female leader, it remains an overwhelmingly male, white bastion and is certainly more conservative than the Conservatives.

Discussions between the British government and the European Union are formally set to begin later this month.

May's gamble to increase her previous majority of 17 and deliver a bigger mandate backfired when the Conservatives fell eight seats short of a governing majority.

Labour has ruled out forming a coalition, while Tim Farron, Liberal Democrat leader, has also said his party would not repeat its painful experience of coalition government between 2010 and 2015.

But May, facing scorn for running a lacklustre campaign, was determined to hang on.

Despite a disappointing election campaign in which her party will lose 12 or 13 seats - leading to some calls for her to step down - Cameron's successor, Theresa May, has received permission from Buckingham Palace to form a new government.

Several government ministers have lost their seats.

With 647 of 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 316 seats. "And I am sorry for all those candidates and hardworking party workers who were not successful, but also particularly sorry for those colleagues who were MPs and ministers who contributed so much to our country and who lost their seats and did not deserve to lose their seats", she said in a televised interview from Downing Street.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has temporarily shored up her support within her party, and determined she will lead a minority Conservative government.

But with complex talks on Britain's 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.

Later, she said she obviously wanted a different result and felt sorry for colleagues who lost their seats. "I would have thought that's enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all of the people of this country". The main opposition Labour Party took 262.
