Ruth Davidson holds talks with prime minister

The leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson has given her biggest hint yet that she could make or break Prime Minister Theresa May's plan for a "hard Brexit".

And Davidson has responded by flexing her newly-established political muscle with a demand for Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans to be "re-opened".

"The country has told us that they want us to be the government, behind the prime minister, but what they've said is that they want us to work with others - that's what not having a majority means". But I do think that there can be changes in the offer of Brexit as we go forward.

Ms Davidson, who has been widely praised for her leadership, suggested the party should concentrate more on the economy and free trade in Brexit negotiations, rather than curbing immigration levels.

"I don't want to see the Brexit deal going through (Britain's national parliament) the House of Commons with a majority of one, I want to see it going through the House of Commons with support across parties", Mundell told BBC Scotland.

Scottish Conservatives are expected to take the Tory whip at Westminster, but Davidson also said she expected MPs from north of the border to "vote entirely as they believe they should".

The Conservatives hope to govern as a minority administration with the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party and their 10 MPs.

Davidson is not a Westminster lawmaker but spearheaded her party's Scottish election campaign.

Amid the fallout of last week's election campaign, she gave interviews saying she wanted a consensus on a Brexit deal that puts economic advancement and jobs at its heart, something seen as a different path to Ms May's focus on immigration.

The DUP have a long standing opposition to same-sex marriage and have blocked its legalisation in the devolved Northern Irish assembly.

Considering how popular she is, and May needs as many votes as possible to push through legislation, it looks like Davidson could be the linchpin for Brexit talks going forward.
