Britain's embattled Prime Minister Theresa May

:00:00.:00:11.

appoints her new cabinet and sidesteps suggestions her

:00:12.:00:14.

general election setback has left her feeling shell-shocked.

:00:15.:00:23.

What I am feeling is actually there is a job to be done and what the

:00:24.:00:29.

public want is to ensure the government is getting on with that

:00:30.:00:30.

job. about the leadership,

:00:31.:00:32.

the man seen by many as her main rival in her own party,

:00:33.:00:36.

Boris Johnson, gives It is absolutely right that she

:00:37.:00:45.

should go ahead, former government and deliver on the priorities of the

:00:46.:00:49.

people. I am going to be backing her.

:00:50.:00:50.

Theresa May is a dead woman walking, it is just how long will she remain

:00:51.:01:01.

on death row. All this comes as Mrs May faces

:01:02.:01:03.

the challenge of minority government We'll have the very latest as MPs

:01:04.:01:05.

prepare to head back to Westminster. Exit polls show France's

:01:06.:01:10.

President Macron on course for a majority in parliament -

:01:11.:01:13.

creating a new party with many MPs who've never before

:01:14.:01:16.

been in politics. And in sport, Rafa Nadal makes

:01:17.:01:20.

it into double figures Hello and welcome

:01:21.:01:23.

to World News Today. The British Prime Minister Theresa

:01:24.:01:50.

May says she is getting on with delivering the job following the

:01:51.:01:57.

Conservative Party losing their majority. Mrs May has retained most

:01:58.:02:01.

of her ministers but she appointed an influential adversary, Michael

:02:02.:02:08.

Gove. With Brexit talks starting in a week's time, the prime instead has

:02:09.:02:12.

faced criticism after losing her majority.

:02:13.:02:14.

She's putting on a brave face but Theresa May knows she has

:02:15.:02:17.

The shock of election night is still sinking in.

:02:18.:02:20.

After church this morning, the Prime Minister rang

:02:21.:02:22.

round colleagues who'd been defeated on Thursday.

:02:23.:02:25.

For now she keeps the job but senior Conservatives have demanded changes.

:02:26.:02:30.

It's going to require a different approach,

:02:31.:02:32.

we are going to see, I hope, more collective

:02:33.:02:35.

I and other senior colleagues have made that clear to her.

:02:36.:02:40.

I think you will also see that she will want

:02:41.:02:42.

to work much more closely with the Parliamentary party.

:02:43.:02:46.

There is no appetite for a general election among conservatives,

:02:47.:02:49.

but the Labour leader says he is ready to seize power.

:02:50.:03:03.

We cannot go on with a period of great instability.

:03:04.:03:05.

We have a programme, we have the support and we are ready

:03:06.:03:08.

to fight another election campaign as soon as may be, because we want

:03:09.:03:11.

It is not just the opposition snapping at Theresa May's heels.

:03:12.:03:15.

It is just how long she will remain on death row.

:03:16.:03:20.

We could easily get to next week and it all collapses for her.

:03:21.:03:25.

When Tory MPs start to return to Parliament this week,

:03:26.:03:28.

they will face the reality of political life without a majority

:03:29.:03:30.

Controversial policies like grammar schools,

:03:31.:03:37.

social care and pension changes may bite the dust.

:03:38.:03:41.

There is no point in sailing ahead with items that

:03:42.:03:45.

were in the manifesto which we will not get

:03:46.:03:48.

To get anything done, the Conservatives need

:03:49.:03:53.

They are trying to do a deal with Northern Ireland's ten

:03:54.:03:57.

Today both sides suggested that the principles

:03:58.:04:01.

We had very good discussions yesterday with the Conservative

:04:02.:04:06.

Party in relation to how we could support them in forming

:04:07.:04:10.

a national government, one that would bring stability

:04:11.:04:13.

We have made good progress but discussions continue.

:04:14.:04:20.

After such a bad political miscalculation, most leaders

:04:21.:04:23.

would be forced out, but many Tory MPs do not

:04:24.:04:27.

have the appetite for a leadership contest just as Brexit talks

:04:28.:04:31.

are about to start and they certainly don't want to risk

:04:32.:04:34.

For now, Theresa May's colleagues are rallying behind her,

:04:35.:04:38.

but she is certainly not in charge of her own political destiny.

:04:39.:04:48.

Among appointees to Theresa May's cabinet is Michael Gove,

:04:49.:04:50.

a Leave campaigner and an adversary of Mrs May's.

:04:51.:04:54.

In the last hour, she was asked whether his appointment

:04:55.:04:56.

What I have done today is seeing people across the party accepting

:04:57.:05:11.

the invitation to be in my cabinet and I have brought in talent from

:05:12.:05:16.

across the party. This is a government that is going to be

:05:17.:05:21.

governing for everyone, we want a country that works for everyone,

:05:22.:05:25.

bringing that talent together to ensure we can deliver a successful

:05:26.:05:30.

Brexit but deal with the challenges that people see in their everyday

:05:31.:05:35.

lives, like dealing with the need for more housing, ensuring we have a

:05:36.:05:40.

proper mental health legislation and providing that technical education

:05:41.:05:45.

for young people. I am pleased people across the party has agreed

:05:46.:05:49.

to serve and we will be getting on with the job with government. Just

:05:50.:05:55.

one more thing. It has obviously been a difficult few days for you

:05:56.:06:00.

both personally and politically. How are you feeling? I imagine you are

:06:01.:06:06.

feeling rather shell-shocked. What I am feeling is there is a job to be

:06:07.:06:11.

done and what the public want is to ensure the government is getting on

:06:12.:06:16.

with that job. I have appointed cabinet ministers today, I will meet

:06:17.:06:21.

with them tomorrow. On Tuesday I will meet President Emmanuel Macron.

:06:22.:06:27.

These are important in getting on with the Brexit negotiations but

:06:28.:06:31.

also dealing with the challenges people see in their everyday lives.

:06:32.:06:35.

This is a government getting on with the work we need to do, to ensure we

:06:36.:06:41.

are a government that will govern for everyone, that we see

:06:42.:06:44.

opportunity across the country, that we see people making the most of

:06:45.:06:52.

their lives. Just one more thing quickly. Some of your colleagues

:06:53.:06:56.

have been suggesting that you might be a caretaker Prime Minister. For

:06:57.:07:02.

the record, do you intend to serve a full term? I said that if re-elected

:07:03.:07:07.

I would serve a full term but what I am doing now is getting on with the

:07:08.:07:12.

immediate job and that is what is important, that is what the public

:07:13.:07:18.

would expect. They want to see government providing that certainty

:07:19.:07:20.

and stability at what is a critical time. The Brexit negotiations start

:07:21.:07:26.

in a week, we need to get those right and make a success of it but

:07:27.:07:31.

there are other issues we need to address. We have been listening to

:07:32.:07:34.

voters and that is what we will be doing.

:07:35.:07:34.

The British Foreign secretary Boris Johnson,

:07:35.:07:36.

seen as a potential challenger, gave his support to the Prime Minister.

:07:37.:07:41.

Of course people are wondering what is going to happen now there is a

:07:42.:07:49.

hung parliament, there is no absolute majority, but Tulisa may

:07:50.:07:54.

got by far the biggest mandate anybody has got for my party for

:07:55.:08:00.

decades. She leads by far the biggest party in parliament, Jeremy

:08:01.:08:06.

Corbyn did not win this election, it is absolutely right that she should

:08:07.:08:10.

go ahead, form a government and deliver on the priorities of the

:08:11.:08:14.

people and I am going to be backing her and everyone I am talking to

:08:15.:08:16.

work as well. Our political correspondent Tom

:08:17.:08:18.

Bateman joins us from Westminster. People taking the pledge of loyalty

:08:19.:08:27.

from Boris and Michael Gove back in Cabinet. What you have to remember

:08:28.:08:36.

in terms of where Theresa May is at his her authority is severely

:08:37.:08:40.

weakened and damage. After an election result and Boris Johnson is

:08:41.:08:44.

right when he says things about the share of the vote, the Conservatives

:08:45.:08:50.

managed to achieve which is of a historic high, but the reality is to

:08:51.:08:56.

reason they had called the election three years early, she wanted to

:08:57.:09:00.

call it two in her words bolster Par Hansson, to strengthen her hand

:09:01.:09:06.

ahead of those Brexit negotiations. But she managed to wipe out her own

:09:07.:09:11.

Parliamentary majority and therefore over this weekend she has been

:09:12.:09:16.

trying to shore up her position in Downing Street. Largely in regards

:09:17.:09:22.

to her standing in the party and her own MPs have the power to mount any

:09:23.:09:26.

leadership challenge against her. What we have seen over the last

:09:27.:09:31.

couple of days and with this reshuffle today is it has been a

:09:32.:09:36.

limited reshuffle. She has not tried to do too much and that is largely

:09:37.:09:42.

because she has been unable to. Most of the Cabinet has stayed in place,

:09:43.:09:47.

there has been one demotion and that was a member of the government who

:09:48.:09:52.

many had seen had not performed well and so was not surprising. What this

:09:53.:09:58.

tells you is Theresa May is boxed in in terms of her ability to manoeuvre

:09:59.:10:03.

in the Cabinet, moreover she is handing out olive branches in the

:10:04.:10:10.

form of Michael Gove who has been brought back into government,

:10:11.:10:14.

somebody she had fired when she first became Prime Minister. What we

:10:15.:10:19.

have to wait to see is over the next few days, whether there are further

:10:20.:10:22.

court against her or whether it is the case that other Cabinet members

:10:23.:10:27.

should say she should remain in place.

:10:28.:10:34.

Exit polls in France suggest the centrist party

:10:35.:10:36.

of President Emanuel Macron is on course for a landslide

:10:37.:10:39.

victory following the first round of parliamentary elections.

:10:40.:10:41.

Interior Ministry figures put his Republique en Marche party

:10:42.:10:44.

and allies on more than 32% of the vote, with the Conservatives

:10:45.:10:48.

more than ten points behind and the National Front

:10:49.:10:51.

of Marine Le Pen trailing in third place.

:10:52.:10:54.

But turnout was a record low of just over 50%.

:10:55.:11:04.

The interim president said figures should drive its candidates to

:11:05.:11:09.

redouble their efforts before next week's second round.

:11:10.:11:15.

TRANSLATION: This evening this isn't a done deal.

:11:16.:11:21.

The low turnout must encourage our efforts to strengthen our engagement

:11:22.:11:28.

with the people. It was at the core of our movement's creation. This is

:11:29.:11:33.

one of our priorities in the coming weeks. What do these numbers mean?

:11:34.:11:43.

This is a two round election, this is the first round of voting in the

:11:44.:11:53.

577 constituencies. Next Sunday we will have the definitive result but

:11:54.:11:58.

normally you can get a clear picture from the first round of how they and

:11:59.:12:03.

result is going to be an normally what we see today is a clear

:12:04.:12:07.

indication of the end result and the end result looks like it will be a

:12:08.:12:13.

huge majority for the Republique en Marche party with up to 440 seats,

:12:14.:12:19.

three quarters of the seats, which is above and beyond what they could

:12:20.:12:25.

have dreamt of and bears out all the prediction that Emmanuel Macron made

:12:26.:12:29.

when he launched his bed. He said that if he became president, even

:12:30.:12:34.

though he did not have an established party behind him, it did

:12:35.:12:39.

not matter because with this group of people behind him, there would be

:12:40.:12:46.

this logic of institutions. The established parties that he was

:12:47.:12:50.

setting up in opposition to have collapsed, the Republicans on the

:12:51.:12:55.

right, they have held their own just about, enough to save face, about

:12:56.:13:04.

100 seats. But on the left, the Socialists have fallen apart and it

:13:05.:13:07.

may well be that they are down to the lowest ever number of seats in

:13:08.:13:13.

the National Assembly, down to just 30 or 40 which is a complete

:13:14.:13:18.

collapse and we must mention Marine Le Pen, riding high a few weeks ago,

:13:19.:13:27.

her party got 13% and they may well have no more than two, three, four

:13:28.:13:34.

MPs in this assembly. Many in Emmanuel Macron's party, many of

:13:35.:13:39.

those people have never been in politics before. Who are they? That

:13:40.:13:46.

is the true interest in this story. It is a story of renewal, of how in

:13:47.:13:53.

our democracies and not just in France, there seems to be an

:13:54.:13:55.

appetite for something different and new, and what Emmanuel Macron did

:13:56.:14:05.

was to tap into that feeling and bring to his party, this movement

:14:06.:14:10.

that was launched on the Internet, all these people, candidates from

:14:11.:14:17.

different backgrounds, ages, men and women, who were complete novices and

:14:18.:14:20.

have been brought through on his coat-tails into the national

:14:21.:14:27.

legislator. We will keep you up-to-date on all the events in

:14:28.:14:33.

France in the coming hours. More on our website along with full details

:14:34.:14:39.

of all the candidates. All that ahead of the second round of the

:14:40.:14:44.

Parliamentary elections next Sunday. Much more ahead: Catalonia's

:14:45.:14:51.

independence campaign have published their manifesto to leave Spain with

:14:52.:14:55.

the help of Pep Guardiola. In the heart of the West German

:14:56.:15:31.

capital. The crowd packed to see the man who fought damn who has raised

:15:32.:15:35.

great hopes for the end of the division of Europe. Michael Jackson

:15:36.:15:42.

was not guilty on all charges. The screen is testament to his

:15:43.:15:44.

popularity and faith in his innocence. As long as they will pay

:15:45.:15:52.

to go see me, I will go out there and kick them down the hill. What

:15:53.:15:58.

does it feel like to be the first man to go across the Channel? It

:15:59.:16:01.

feels marvellous really. Britain's Prime Minister insist she

:16:02.:16:27.

will preside over a successful exit of the EU despite losing her

:16:28.:16:33.

majority. After an extremely difficult few days, Theresa May says

:16:34.:16:37.

she is focused on getting on with the job and one of her first moves

:16:38.:16:39.

will be to visit Emmanuel Macron. But with Brexit talks due

:16:40.:16:45.

to start within days, the UK election has emboldened those

:16:46.:16:47.

politicians who are calling for the country to remain

:16:48.:16:50.

inside Europe's Single Market. So what does the UK political

:16:51.:16:52.

upheaval mean for Brexit negotiations and what do Europeans

:16:53.:16:54.

make of the last few I'm joined from Paris

:16:55.:16:57.

by the journalist and The French seem invigorated with

:16:58.:17:11.

their new politics and all the people coming into Emmanuel Macron's

:17:12.:17:20.

party. What are they thinking? That France is strong and stable in

:17:21.:17:25.

comparison with the UK. It is very strange. On Friday we were mystified

:17:26.:17:31.

because we do not understand what the results in the general elections

:17:32.:17:35.

mean. It is wonderful to see that young voters went to vote en masse

:17:36.:17:44.

and for Labour, but word they more interested in the scrapping of

:17:45.:17:49.

tuition fees or showing that they were pro-European? The problem is

:17:50.:17:56.

that Labour is going to go for Brexit, it is not going to be

:17:57.:18:00.

questioned Brexit in any way. They want to get out of the single market

:18:01.:18:06.

and so does that mean all be young voters who voted for Jeremy Corbyn

:18:07.:18:11.

want to stop Brexit? As opposed to a hard Brexit? Also Theresa May looks

:18:12.:18:18.

incredibly weak now so does that mean that the Tory party is going to

:18:19.:18:24.

get rid of her? Even if it happens, it will take a few weeks, months and

:18:25.:18:32.

in the meantime, their negotiation talks are going to start. In

:18:33.:18:35.

Brussels there are 27 states that are quite in agreement about how

:18:36.:18:44.

those talks should be led and on the other side, in Britain, the message

:18:45.:18:51.

this election is sending out is actually not very clear. Their

:18:52.:18:55.

message might be mixed, some seeing it as a message that the government

:18:56.:19:00.

should implement a softer Brexit, whatever that means, but also people

:19:01.:19:05.

are worried that the negotiations will be difficult. How can Britain

:19:06.:19:11.

negotiated in a strong position if the Prime Minister might not even be

:19:12.:19:15.

there to see them through? Exactly. It is a question for the future

:19:16.:19:22.

Parliament, the future British Parliament to resolve. Perhaps you

:19:23.:19:27.

need a cross-party negotiating team to send to Brussels, that is

:19:28.:19:32.

possible, especially when Theresa May doesn't even know whether she

:19:33.:19:38.

will get there. Port of the DUP, so I think the British government has

:19:39.:19:48.

to somehow find something before it goes to Brussels, otherwise perhaps

:19:49.:19:52.

negotiations can be delayed until somebody has a majority in British

:19:53.:19:57.

Parliament. Thank you very much for your time. Thousands of people

:19:58.:20:05.

pushing for Catalonia for independence have protesters the

:20:06.:20:11.

Spanish government to recognise a referendum there. Campaigners held a

:20:12.:20:15.

rally in Barcelona as they released a manifesto ahead of the

:20:16.:20:19.

independence vote in October. Amongst those taking part was Pep

:20:20.:20:21.

Guardiola. Leading political and civic figures

:20:22.:20:35.

attended the demonstration. It followed the Catalan regional

:20:36.:20:38.

government announcement on Friday that it intends to hold the

:20:39.:20:48.

referendum on October one. We will vote even though the Spanish state

:20:49.:20:54.

doesn't want us to. Pep Guardiola read out a strongly worded manifesto

:20:55.:20:59.

outlining Catalonia's intention to push ahead with the vote. We call on

:21:00.:21:07.

the international community to help us. We call on all democracies in

:21:08.:21:13.

Europe, all around the world to stand by us, defending the rights to

:21:14.:21:19.

free Catalonia, freedom in political expression. To face up to the abuses

:21:20.:21:27.

of an authoritarian state. We Catalans are going to vote the 1st

:21:28.:21:29.

of October your. Spanish Prime Minister has condemned

:21:30.:21:49.

the referendum plan as illegal and has pledged to block it although it

:21:50.:21:53.

is still not clear exactly what steps he would take to do so.

:21:54.:21:59.

Catalan is a fairly even divided on the issue of independence although a

:22:00.:22:05.

clear majority would like to be able to hold a legal referendum on their

:22:06.:22:07.

future. Hello and welcome to the programme

:22:08.:22:11.

where we start with the French Open tennis and the news that

:22:12.:22:23.

Rafael Nadal has beaten 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka in straight

:22:24.:22:26.

sets to becomes the first man to win the same Grand Slam on ten

:22:27.:22:29.

occasions in the Open era. Now one has ever won the same grand

:22:30.:22:40.

slam ten times. Was Rafael Nadal about to be the first? To complete

:22:41.:22:46.

it he would have to overcome another champion in Stan Wawrinka. Nadal

:22:47.:22:52.

lived up to his reputation as he powered his way up to the first set.

:22:53.:22:59.

A fresh slate for Wawrinka. He has won his previous three grand slam

:23:00.:23:02.

finals and he was looking to put the first set behind him and kick on. He

:23:03.:23:08.

started promisingly. Nadal is yet to drop a set so far this year and in

:23:09.:23:12.

truth they did not look like he would hear. He just wouldn't give up

:23:13.:23:18.

and Wawrinka was never able to get into the contest. Clearly the

:23:19.:23:22.

frustration was getting the better of him. Match point, a chance to win

:23:23.:23:33.

a grand slam for the first time since 2014. A chance to put all

:23:34.:23:36.

those injury problems behind him and to make history. A chance he

:23:37.:23:41.

wouldn't give up. Rafael Nadal's prowess on clay has never been in

:23:42.:23:45.

doubt and ultimately need there was his tenth French Open title.

Lewis Hamilton has won the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix

:23:48.:23:50.

for the sixth time after leading from start to finish in Montreal.

:23:51.:23:53.

The victory cuts the championship lead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel

:23:54.:23:55.

to just 12 points after the German could only manage a fourth place
