He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

Theresa May moves to form minority government losing vote gamble


British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a minority government she said would be backed by a small Northern Irish party after having lost an election gamble days before launching talks on Britain`s exit from the European Union.

May had called the snap election confident of increasing her Conservative Party`s majority to strengthen her hand in the Brexit talks, instead, her authority has been diminished.

She now risks more opposition to her Brexit plans from inside and outside her party. Some colleagues may be lining up to replace her, although a party source said the post was seen as too much of a poisoned chalice for the time being, reports said.

Just after noon, May was driven the short distance from Downing Street to Buckingham Palace to ask Queen Elizabeth for permission to form a government - a formality under the British system.

"As we`re the party that won the most seats and most votes we are the only party in a position to form a government," May said. Her office said later that the key finance, foreign, Brexit, interior and defence ministers would remain unchanged.

The centre-right, pro-Brexit Democratic Unionist Party`s 10 seats are enough to give May`s Conservatives a fragile but workable partnership, which May said would allow her to negotiate a successful exit from the EU.
