To not know who is in power now?

So is Con/DUP a done deal now? I known TM saw the Queen and she gets "first dibs" on forming a coalition, but I can't make out whether this is now the ruling coalition or whether there is still time for JC to pip her to the post? Would Labour only get there chance if talks between the Tories and DUP break down...?
Sorry for the stupid questions - I have faith in the wise women of MN to clear things up for me!

In theory, talks could break down, because their 'alliance' was decided in the middle of the night, TM may not be willing or able to meet their demands for votes. Although it seems that both sides desperately need each other, so I'm fairly(and sadly) sure that they'll come to some kind of agreement. There do seem to be some potential holes in it though, so until parliament convenes - things could possibly change. I can only bloody hope!
