UK Conservatives need to deliver an "open" Brexit - Scotland leader

Petition grows against Theresa May's deal with ultra-conservatives

Petition grows against Theresa May's deal with ultra-conservatives

The fact that a prominent figure in the Conservative Party has already raised the matter publicly as a potential source of friction and embarrassment for the Tories within hours of the announcement of a Conservative-DUP deal to keep May in power indicates that this has the potential to be a thorny issue.

The DUP is the reason why Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom without same-sex marriage.

Striking a noticeably more conciliatory tone than Mrs May, Ms Davidson said Labour's campaign had "struck a chord" with voters and that the Tories should seek agreement with the other parties on how best to proceed with Brexit.

On Friday, she tweeted a link to a speech she gave on the importance equal marriage.

Speaking on BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme, he said: "I saw that piece in the Telegraph with some interest and it rang some bells for some things I said a few years ago but I'm assured that there's not a lot of truth in this particular story".

Clinton's scathing tweet was clearly a reference to the now-infamous " covfefe " tweet Trump sent out earlier in the week. Clinton said the NYT coverage of her private email server - the paper broke the story - was disproportionate.

The performance of Tories north of the border was in marked contrast to that in England and Wales where Prime Minister Theresa May lost her majority in the House of Commons.

The DUP, which returned 10 MPs to Westminster, has garnered a reputation for its strong and controversial views on a number of social issues.

"They've vetoed same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland five times".

A spokesman said he is discussing with the DUP "how best they can provide support" to Theresa May's Government, Downing Street said.

He said having far more MPs in Westminster would "make a huge difference" to the influence of the Scottish Conservatives on issues including Brexit, and added: "What you'll see is the new group of Scottish Conservatives arguing for what is in the interest of Scottish communities and Scottish business".

We are greater together than apart. "When people speak of Nigeria and respect this country, it is because of the diversity; because of the strength in numbers".

The Daily Telegraph reported that aides for Ms Davidson were working on a deal that would see the Scottish party split from the United Kingdom party.

She added: "Folk might remember I fought a leadership election on the other side of that particular argument".

Ms Davidson's party won 13 seats in Scotland as its vote surged across the country.

The Scottish Tory leader hopes to convince the DUP to allow same-sex marriages in Northern Ireland.

During the election campaign, the DUP's Emma Little-Pengelly was endorsed by the three biggest loyalist paramilitary organisations.
