No deal yet between UK Conservatives and DUP to back PM May


May desperately needs the DUP's 10 seats to pass legislation.

Jeremy Corbyn received a standing ovation from his fellow Labour MPs as he returned to a meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party for the first time since Labour's unexpectedly strong results in the General Election.

DUP leader Arlene Foster, who travelled to Westminster for talks with the Tories on Tuesday, said she hoped a deal could be reached "sooner rather than later".

"I think it's very self-interested, putting party before peace in Northern Ireland - party interest before peace and stability in Northern Ireland - and I do think it's that serious".

"The Tory civil war on the European Union which has ripped it apart since the Maastricht rebellions of the early 1990s, and which the referendum was supposed to solve, is now raging again", said Chris Grey, an academic who specializes in Brexit at Royal Holloway in London.

London's neutrality is key to the delicate balance of power in Northern Ireland, which was once plagued by violence over Britain's control of the province.

"We want to know what is in the deal they are offering to the DUP and we want to know when it is going to be put before Parliament", he said.

Macron said during a press conference with May in Paris on Tuesday that "of course the door is always open as long as the negotiations on Brexit have not finished".

"It's going to be hard, there's no doubt about that, but perhaps an opportunity to consult more widely with the other parties on how best we can achieve it", he said at a conference in Poland, the Financial Times reported.

"The people of Britain have had a bellyful of promises and politicking".

Mrs May's botched election gamble has left her so weakened that her Brexit strategy is the subject of debate within her party, with former prime ministers John Major and David Cameron calling on her to soften her Brexit approach.

He added: "It corrodes confidence in the negotiating process".

Mr Barnier has said he wants to wrap up a Brexit deal by October 2018 so it has time to get it through national parliaments and the European Parliament in time for Britain's departure from the bloc at the end of March 2019.

The Irish republican Sinn Fein party - which won seven seats in the election although MPs traditionally don't take up their seats in protest - is also wary of the alliance.

We now see happening what those of us who anxious about what would happen if the Tories would lose the elections feared: Brexit is coming under pressure.

Following discussions in Brussels on Thursday, the offices of Brexit Secretary David Davis and the European Commission's chief negotiator Michel Barnier released a joint statement to confirm the date.

Five days on from the stalemate of the United Kingdom general election result, Europe's impatience with the Britain over Brexit is growing.

The draft law would empower Europe to decide if post-Brexit London has the right to host financial market "clearing houses" that deal in euros, the EU's single currency.
