Top aides to Theresa May resign after British election losses

Top aides to Theresa May resign after British election losses

Indeed it's said apart from her husband, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, were the only people she listened to.

Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, replaces joint chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill.

Publicly and privately the blame game has begun for the Conservatives after failing to win a majority at the general election.

May's attempts to form a government with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) appear to be taking longer than first thought, as Downing Street said Saturday negotiations are ongoing despite an earlier statement that a deal had been reached.

Although Conservatives still hold more seats than any other party, May now must work to build some form of a coalition government in parliament.

"We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond". "The details will be put forward for discussion and agreement at a Cabinet meeting on Monday".

As Mrs May clings on to power, there is disquiet within her party about the link-up with the DUP, which opposes same-sex marriage and abortion.

The prime minister was apparently planning a post-election reshuffle, with Chancellor Philip Hammond and Brexit Secretary David Davis facing the chop.

"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.

Ms Perrior told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: 'There was not enough respect shown to people who spent 20 years in office or 20 years getting to the top seat in Government.

After a brief interlude at the British Chambers of Commerce, she returned to work for the Tory party and soon became special adviser to Mrs May at the Home Office, where she teamed up with Mr Timothy.

Advisers and co-leaders of the Prime Minister of Great #britain Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, who were responsible for preparing the election campaign before the parliamentary elections, resigned because of the loss of the ruling majority by the conservatives.

The lid was lifted on the PM's "poisonous clique" by her former director of communications Katie Perrior.

Writing in The Times she said: "Mrs May condoned their behaviour and turned a blind eye or didn't understand how destructive they both were".

Mr Timothy said he took responsibility for his part in the campaign, including his role in the so-called "dementia tax", which would have seen more people pay for the cost of their social care.

The campaign failed to get "Theresa's positive plan for the future across" or "notice the surge in Labour support".

"One can speculate about the reasons for this, but the simple truth is that Britain is a divided country: many are exhausted of austerity, many remain frustrated about Brexit, and many younger people feel they lack the opportunities enjoyed by their parents" generation... the Conservative Election campaign failed to get this, and Theresa's positive plan for the future, across'.
