Merkel says European Union is 'ready to start Brexit negotiations'

May had unexpectedly called the snap election seven weeks ago, confident of sharply increasing the slim majority - 331 seats out of 650 - she had inherited from predecessor David Cameron before starting negotiations with the European Union over Britain's departure from the bloc, or Brexit.
"The British political system is in total disarray".
Britain's top political leader, Theresa May, remains in office as prime minister.
"A failed campaign leaves Theresa May humbled and her party reeling", its editorial said. "We demand fresh leadership immediately".
Whilst the DUP has little love for Corbyn, it is staunchly opposed to a hardline approach to the Brexit negotiations that could threaten free trade and free movement of people across the Irish border. For a General Election ostensibly called because of Brexit, discussions were limited to which leader was trusted to deliver it, rather than what "it" would look like.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn'sLabour could be expected to explore the potential for co-operation with other "progressive" parties like the Lib Dems, Scottish National Party, Plaid Cymru, Greens or the SDLP.
"A working government is needed as soon as possible to avoid a further drop in the pound", said ING currency strategist Viraj Patel in London.
If no party wins a 326-seat majority in a general election, Britain is left with a "hung Parliament", as was the case on Friday morning, with no party able to claim the right to form a government on its own.
Her ability to drive Brexit reforms through parliament is sharply diminished.
"No-one wants to see a hard border, Sinn Fein talk about it a lot, but nobody wants a hard border", she has said. The voters surprised everyone by handing the Conservatives a decisive, if slim, parliamentary majority.

With the complex talks on the 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.
He suggested the United Kingdom government may have lost a mandate to exit the customs union and single market.
"As I reflect on the result, I will reflect on what we need to do in the future to take the party forward", May said before adding "I obviously wanted a different result".
"It does... offer an opportunity to rethink the hard Brexit that Ms".
May has insisted that Brexit means Brexit but it is unclear how long she will remain in power or whether another British election will be called.
Other EU leaders have expressed concerns the failure to win a majority may make negotiations even more hard. But it would at least give them what May never would until now: a real chance to choose the kind of Brexit they want.
"We want to negotiate quickly, we want to stick to the time plan, and so at this point I don't think there is anything to suggest these negotiations can not start as was agreed".
Labour party leader Corbyn also said, "politics has changed and it isn't going back into the box it was before", during his constituency victory speech.
None of the other parties that stood for election managed to surpass the majority threshold resulting in a British hung parliament. However, Trump on Friday claimed "total and complete vindication" after Comey revealed he was not personally under investigation in a probe into Russian interference in last year's USA election.
The Labour Party has said it was prepared to form a coalition government, with Mr Corbyn announcing: "We are ready to serve". "The arguments the Conservative Party put forward in this election have lost, and we need to change", he said .
The Conservatives fell short of securing a majority in Thursday's election, emerging with a total of 318, shy of the required 236. Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said Sturgeon should take the prospect of a new independence referendum off the table.
In addition to Spicer's remarks on Monday, President Trump also declined to express confidence in Sessions on Tuesday. The unnamed sources claim President Trump blames the recusal for the expansion of the Russian investigation.
Update: President Trump gave the same maybe-I-did, maybe-I-didn't statement in a press conference Friday . The other is Comey's assertion that Trump twice told him, "I need loyalty" during a January 27 dinner.

The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Warriors 137-116 in Game 4 of the Finals on Friday night to avoid elimination. Later in the third, a skirmish for a loose ball resulted in Iman Shumpert and Zaza Pachulia getting into it.
When Cleveland's locker room opened after the game , trainer Mike Mancias was stretching James over a medicine ball. It started with 6:18 left in the quarter when Green appeared to pick up his second technical.
Game three is yet to be determined because we won't know if it is even necessary until the completion of Sunday night's game. Mississippi State's 8-6 victory over Southern Miss in the Hattiesburg Regional sent the Bulldogs to Baton Rouge.

May seen fighting for survival after election failure
It was not immediately clear what the DUP's demands might be and one DUP lawmaker suggested support might come vote by vote. We know when they must end. "Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of 'no negotiations'".
