NOISE] F
tal terror attacks. An apartment fire claiming the lives of tens of people. No functioning government and seemingly no Brexit action plan. Prime Minister Theresa May's election slogan was strong and stable. One week on from the result, things in Britain look anything but. The question now, can the Prime Minister weather the storms?
00:00:22
Reuters' Will James is in Westminster.>> Theresa May is facing pressure on three main fronts, really. First of all, she's got to get a deal to shore up her government, she didn't win a majority in an election last week. The second thing that she's doing is trying to get ready for Brexit talks, which start on Monday.
00:00:40
It's a huge deal, it's going to define the whole direction of the country and yet she still doesn't have a deal in Parliament to be able to pass through any laws. The third thing that she's got to deal with is security.>> On Friday, terror and security were once again in the foreground with the anniversary of the attack on British MP Jo Cox, shot and stabbed to death by a right-wing political extremist.
00:01:04
In Westminster, a reminder of its own recent terror attack with the arrest of a man wielding a knife at police officers.>> I got a call to say that there's something happening outside the gates at Westminster, ran to a window and you look out and you see there's police all around.
00:01:18
Security was the defining issue of the election which took place just last week. It came to be that way because there were attacks in London and Manchester and that threat is still ongoing. It’s still out there, people are still in hospitals, people are still dealing with the aftermath of those attacks.
00:01:35
>> As the number of people killed and missing in London's terrible tower fire continues to rise, sorrow is swiftly turning to anger over why it happened. Many on the ground blame austerity and government cuts and indifference to the poorest and most vulnerable in British society. The Queen and the opposition Labor leader seen visiting and embracing victims, while May was slammed for not taking the compassionate lead, a further blow to her credibility that she can't really afford right now.
