London, June 13: After the whole UK elections debacle and a hung parliament, Prime Minister Theresa May for the very first time addressed publicly that she is ‘sorry’. She apologized to Tory MPs yesterday, accepting personal responsibility for failing to win an outright victory and sacrificing parliamentary majority. She also told in a meeting of backbenchers that she had got the party into this trouble and only she’ll get all of them out of it. To fix the parliament majority, Theresa May is to meet the leader of Democratic Unionist Party, Arlene Foster to bring in the majority in the Parliament to govern.
“We enter these talks in a positive fashion. We are, first and foremost, Unionists, and therefore we want to secure the Union. And as I said on Friday after the election, the Union is my guiding star, so we will be looking to make sure the Union stays strong. But we do want to do so in the national interest to give stability to the government and that’s the way in which we’ll be entering these negotiations,” said Foster.
Seen as a compromise, the backing of the 10 DUP MPs is needed to shore up the Conservative Party government after it fell eight seats short of winning an overall majority in Thursday’s (June 8) election.
