Britain's May urges Northern Irish government deal by June 29


"We warned Mrs May that the pact between the Tories and the DUP has the potential to undermine past agreements and the re-establishment of the Executive".

"What the country needs more than ever is certainty", she said, "and having secured the largest number of votes and the greatest number of seats in the general election, it is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the legitimacy and ability to provide that certainty by commanding a majority in the House of Commons".

In a statement, O'Neill said: "I will be making it very clear that any deal between the Tories and the DUP can not be allowed to undermine the Good Friday and subsequent agreements".

An initial round of talks between May and DUP leader Arlene Foster ended with no agreement on Tuesday, although both sides said they were hopeful of a deal.

Former prime minister Mr Cameron said Mrs May would have to change her approach to Brexit as a result of the election.

But with so much at stake for Britain and its US$2.5 trillion economy, pressure was mounting on May heed other voices. However, he added that once it was done, Brexit would be hard to reverse.

Sources said Mr Davis is determined to get started and wants to offer a package giving the European citizens all rights they now enjoy. Since last year's Brexit vote, Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has repeatedly demanded a referendum on reunification - and did so again on Friday as the Conservative-DUP pact materialized. "I think it's a very damaging situation".

The Times reported that Chancellor Philip Hammond was preparing to fight for the United Kingdom to remain within the EU's customs union.

The UK is due to leave the European Union by the end of March 2019.

"Yesterday Emmanuel Macron ... said if Britain is changing its mind, it will find an open door", said Mr Verhofstadt.

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". When and if that happens, those, mainly in the Conservative party, who want as complete a break as possible with the European Union, will find they are much weakened. "I am dubious about it".

"But, let us be clear and organised and once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more hard to move backwards", he noted.

Today, Mrs May will meet with her Brexit team in a bid to iron out a plan.

"There is a unity of goal among people in the United Kingdom", May said following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

"What we want to see is a workable plan to leave the European Union, and that's what the national vote was about - therefore we need to get on with that", Foster said recently.

They also said the rally would protest the DUP's record on "access to abortion", and that if the deal goes through the Conservatives would be joining with a party "known to promote policy which restricts the rights of women and LGBT people".

A DUP spokesman told AFP there had been a break in the talks due to parliamentary business.

The power sharing agreement involving the DUP and Sinn Fein at the Stormont assembly in Northern Ireland collapsed in March over the DUP's refusal to hold a public inquiry into a renewable heating funding scandal.

"It would not affect the role of the Secretary of State or the Conservative Party's commitment to the agreement and its successors which, as we said at the election, remains steadfast".

With May offering what was described as a "contrite" approach telling MPs, "I got us into this mess and I'm going to get us out of it", she was allowed to continue as party leader-for now.

"This is the first time I have been here without (former Deputy First Minister) Martin McGuinness and we also gave her Martin McGuinness' resignation letter because that points out the difficulties (where) the institutions failed but also pinpoint the way that the institutions can be put back in place on a basis which shows respect for everyone, tolerance and integrity".
