Commenting on the Prime Minister's statement on forming a government relying on the support of the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:
"It is clear that the Prime Minister has done a deal with the DUP. She must now make clear what the terms of that deal are. The British people have a right to know.
"The sort of government she forms will have profound implications for the Brexit negotiations and the future of the country, especially if it means she is taking sides in the peace process in Northern Ireland.
"Theresa May has taken the British people for granted long enough. She made the election about her own leadership and she lost. Theresa May shouldn't be stitching up a new deal in secret, she should be resigning."
