    If the DUP gets any say in how the UK is governed, the majority of Brits will not be happy.

    Not to mention the irony in her attacking Corbyn's links to the IRA then bringing a party with ties to terrorism into the fold.

    It still beats having another election in 1 or 2 years. I think the Brexit debate really needs to be settled and done with or else it's going to continue to be a toxic issue.

    It will remain a toxic issue. Her own party is divided between pro-EU and Anti-EU.

    They're in a very weak position here. She will have an incredibly hard time keeping everyone happy. With this weakening of her majority. It now only takes two of her MPs disagreeing to with her to shoot down any proposals she makes, even with the DUP propping her up.

    So this whole Brexit thing has turned out to be a hilarious mess. Anyone else shocked?

    Vote of no confidence tomorrow. This will probably be the end of the May administration.
    I think the EU is making this as painful as possible so the next country that considers leaving the EU will think again.

    Which provision of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the Federal government to overthrow an elected state government and replace it with an appointed military governor?

    I wouldn’t be shocked if she survives.

    Britain did this to themselves. The EU owes them nothing, and the idea that the EU should let them cherrypick is patently absurd. Out is out.

    The goal isn’t to maliciously harm the UK, but to maintain the integrity of the single market. Without the single market, there is no EU.

    You know, I think she'll survive, with minority support, because of the yawning canyon of chaos...
