Jeremy Corbyn enjoys kickabout as politics takes a backseat

The TV channel said Foster had told them she would be travelling to London to meet May at her official Downing Street residence on Tuesday.

The Conservatives lost their House of Commons majority in Thursday's election and will not be able to govern without support from the DUP's 10 members of parliament.

Fair play to the old boy, he said: "Send this one to Wenger!"

Momentum, the pro-Jeremy Corbyn pressure group, has revealed how it helped Labour deny the Conservatives of a majority at the general election and humiliate the now lame duck Prime Minister Theresa May.

May's authority over her party was shattered by the election result.

If the whole Labour party comes together, using our bigger presence in parliament to harry, harass and harangue the Tories with fresh intensity and a singularity of objective, we can take them apart.

May's only hope of forming a government now is to win support from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which won 10 seats. May's office has said that the most senior Cabinet members - including Treasury chief Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd - will keep their jobs, but she is expected to shuffle the lower ranks of ministers.

The British PM's bet that she could strengthen her hand by crushing "a weak opposition Labour Party" backfired spectacularly on Thursday.

Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior members of the party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power.

But former party leader Iain Duncan Smith said a leadership contest now would be a "catastrophe". "It's just how long she's going to remain on death row", former Conservative finance minister George Osborne, who was sacked by May when she became prime minister a year ago, told the BBC. She had previously signalled that she meant to take Britain out of the single market so that she would be able to take more control of immigration.

"The Conservatives have not yet broken the British system of democracy, but through their hubris and incompetence they have managed to make a mockery of it", it said in an editorial. "It remains to be seen what the nature of that deal is".

Downing Street initially said on Saturday that an outline agreement on a "confidence and supply" arrangement had been reached with the DUP which would be put to the Cabinet for discussion on Monday.

Joining forces with the hardline unionist Protestant party also threatens London's neutrality in Northern Ireland, which is key to the delicate balance of power in a province once plagued by violence.

She said Brexit talks would begin on June 19 as scheduled, the same day as the formal reopening of parliament.

"I think there's a strong possibility that the British government and the EU will make an agreement that will be as close as possible to what is presently there in the context of the Customs Union because I think they will see the implications [of not being in it]". We want to end austerity and invest in this country and that's what we're going to do.
