The Countdown Begins: Theresa May's Final Grasp For Power

Other | Wednesday 21st June 2017 | Roberto

We need to have a 'mandate' she said, 'strong and stable' she said. Theresa May tried to have her cake and eat it but we've seen what happens to the greedy. 

Following the General Election, the UK has been left with a hung parliament, leaving the Tories weaker than they were before. 

Not only has the Prime Minister lost her credibility with the public, but May has been forced to scramble for power, as she now looks to grasp a deal with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

A couple of issues with that.

With the DUP being a political party in Northern Ireland, if they were to come to an agreement with the Conservative party and form a coalition, it could cause massive conflict with the Republic of Ireland or worse, break aspects of the 'Good Friday Agreement'.

Check out ex-Prime Minister Sir. John Major talk on how this could affect U.K. relations moving forward:

This Wednesday is the Queens speech. For the first time in over 30 years, it has been pushed back to allow room for extra negotiation time. It is also the most critical moment for Theresa May and her party post general election. If the Conservatives fail to get enough votes for their government program, they will fall apart.

And from what we know, there currently is no deal yet with the DUP to earn her that extra support. 

The reality of what could happen is a vote of no confidence for May. If the Prime Minister fails to convince the MP's & Lords of her agenda, Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party will get an opportunity to form a government.

However, if that also fails to succeed then we could head for another General Election, which wouldn't be great for the UK. 

This all happens to be going down while the Brexit negotiations are also currently taking place. David Davis, the current Brexit Secretary for the UK Government, recently began the Brexit negotiations with failing to secure the government's primary demand of having new trade deals.

Michel Barnier, the EU's Chief Brexit Negotiator made it clear as to who controlled the conversation when he stated "A fair deal is possible and far better than no deal. That is what I said to David today."

The UK has been left weaker in strength after the elections, that's a reality.

As shown by Mr Davis's who failed to have the "Row of the Summer" as he proudly announced he would back in May.Theresa May has also been unsuccessful in showing that she's a strong and stable leader, as she once claimed to be. Recent reports suggest that Tory MP's are already plotting to replace May, calling Boris Johnson to take charge.

Let's just hope that the rest of the MP's and Lords come to their senses and vote May down following the Queens speech, so we can finally get a governing body that is actually 'strong and stable'.
