Predictions reveal that Tories wouldn’t be forming a majority in Parliament, so the Democratic Unionist Party, which is biggest political party for unionists in Northern Ireland, may demand leniet Brexit negotiation procedure to win the support in coalition.

UKIP former leader, Nigel Farage insists that he will resign to frontline politics if Brexit got threatened besides criticizing Tories for picking their leader Mrs May. ‘A huge mistake has been committed by Tories to choose a remainer to lead the Brexit party at elections. The error is immense but if Corbyn coalition is formed, then Brexit is in trouble’ Nigel said to BBC.

Lord O’Donnell, the previous cabinet secretary, said that the general elections will pose trouble to Theresa May to confront Brexit negotiations. On BBC, he said: ‘Prime minister shall stay as PM for now’

O’Donnell predicts that negotiations are going to be non-existent as negotiations need two party talks. EU will ask who are we talking with? Will this prime minister going to stay around for long? What position does she has?

He added: ‘they’ll threaten UK by telling us: ‘the deal has ended and you are out’ which will pose terrible consequences for us.’
