UK Prime Minister Theresa May seems determined to stay on both as Prime Minister and as leader of the Conservative Party after her party lost seats in last week's elections.
She does, however, need the support from another party.
On Saturday her Conservatives struck an outline deal with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) for support on key legislation.
UK correspondent Gavin Grey gives details on the matter.
The Conservative Party has zero appetite for another election. Many of them want her to go but they don't think now is the right time. They are just considering at the moment that it is better to let her stay and think about the longer term future. But I think in one former chancellor's words, she is a dead woman walking.— Gavin Grey, UK correspondent
Grey says if a deal is struck with the DUP, a pledge for more money going to Ireland is very likely.
And here perhaps is the other crucial thing, Ireland and Northern Ireland would become the only land border when or if Britain leaves the European Union.— Gavin Grey, UK correspondent
