BREAKING IN LONDON — AP: “Prime Minister Theresa May plans to seek the permission of Queen Elizabeth II to form a government even though her Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons. Downing Street says she plans to meet the queen at 12:30 p.m. local time (1130 GMT).
“May will need the support of another party or group of parties to command a majority. Her plan of calling an early election in the hopes of getting a bigger majority than she enjoyed during the previous parliament backfired in Thursday’s general election.” http://apne.ws/2saHvzu
FROM THE GUARDIAN — “May has the right to remain in office and try to assemble a working government – but she is under intense pressure from senior colleagues, many of whom blame her for a botched manifesto launch and a wobbly campaign.” http://bit.ly/2slq0fF
