  • Tottering Theresa May names new UK Cabinet as critics circle

A party councillor in Ballymena reportedly claimed Hurricane Katrina, which killed more than 1,500 people in the U.S., was God's revenge for New Orleans hosting an annual gay pride event.

In trying to make the election a choice between characters, Theresa May lost, because she comes across as an unlikeable personality, totally unsympathetic, nasty, snide and downright rude, quite apart from being shitfacedly arrogant. And after that, she never really recovered.

"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", said the MP, who is a lesbian. His was also an energetic, innovative and youthful campaign, using social media to drive up enthusiasm and support with video clips and memes that swiftly went viral.

"I think its quite possible there'll be an election later this year or early next year, and that might be a good thing, because we can not go on with a period of great instability", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr on Sunday. Jeremy Corbyn's Labour stands against austerity, stands for affordable public services and a future for Britain's youth.

May's party fell short of an overall majority following Thursday's vote, and plans to work with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party. Will the Democratic Unionists get something for their pains? And with these deals there's always a price tag attached to them.

Having galvanized the youth, and with strong backing from the party membership, his popularity amongst parliamentary colleagues, both new and old, is set to increase. They want more money for their people.

A deal between the government and the DUP could also unsettle the precarious balance between Northern Ireland's British loyalist and Irish nationalist parties. The Northern Ireland is one of the more depressed parts of the British economy.

According to the leak , it will have a 6.4-inch Infinity display , making it the largest Note and bigger than the Galaxy S8 Plus . The device was unveiled back in February at MWC, and the Korean company is now taking pre-orders for it in the UK.

The news came as May prepared to name the rest of her cabinet, after revealing on Friday that her five most senior ministers would remain in their posts.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was forced to relinquish her two closest aides on Saturday as she struggled to reassert her authority following a crushing electoral setback.

"I can still be prime minister", Corbyn tells the Sunday Mirror. "I and other senior colleagues have made that clear to her", he said. The party won 262 seats in the election - up by 30 from 2015.

For Prime Minister Theresa May, the result was a huge disappointment.

Despite mounting speculation of a leadership contest between Boris Johnson and David Davis, the foreign minister has been quick to downplay such speculation as "tripe".

The DUP now finds itself centre stage - a long way from its foundation in 1971 by firebrand Protestant evangelical preacher Ian Paisley to defend Northern Ireland's union with Britain against demands for a united Ireland.

Osborne, now editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper, said May's days in Downing Street are numbered. She announced the election with a 24-point lead over Jeremy Corbyn's Labour, according to the polls, who often underestimate Conservative support. "That's not a matter for me", she said. I wouldn't go that far at this stage, but I think life is going to become very hard for Theresa May and the euro skeptics who want Britain to pull out of the European Union.
