May nears deal with Northern Irish 'kingmakers'

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 04:15

Prime Minister Theresa May will meet representatives of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) on Tuesday in a bid to prop up her minority government, after the Conservatives were left eight seats short of a majority in last week's general election.

Mrs Foster arrived in Downing Street with Nigel Dodds at lunchtime for negotiations with the Prime Minister but they decamped to Parliament to allow Mrs May and the DUP's deputy leader to speak in the Commons.

The Conservative government lost their majority in the House of Commons last week, and so they need to form a deal with the ultra-conservative Northern Ireland party, the DUP, who are heavily against LGBT rights.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has demanded details of any Conservative-DUP deal, calling it a "nonsense situation".

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has warned London not to waste time, as Brussels waits for embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May to name a date for talks.

Some have also called into question the United Kingdom government's role as a mediator in the Northern Ireland peace process, with a possible DUP presence in the executive potentially leading to bias during a political vacuum in the region.

In return, the DUP is expected to seek more investment for Northern Ireland and a strong commitment to ensuring that the Border remains frictionless after Brexit.

"I got us into this mess, and I'm going to get us out", she told her Conservative MPs. Government bond prices suffered heavy losses on Tuesday after consumer price inflation jumped to 2.9 percent in May.

The talks are being closely watched in European capitals as they could delay the expected start of Brexit negotiations next week.

A lack lustre campaign saw her high approval rating slip away, and support for her "hard Brexit" strategy pulling out of the European single market and customs union now hangs in the balance.


"We don't know when Brexit talks start. I can't negotiate with myself", he told The Financial Times.

The European Parliament, which named former Belgian prime minister Verhofstadt as its Brexit pointman a year ago, will have the final say on any deal on Britain's exit from the EU. "The current uncertainty can not continue".

The DUP supported Brexit but the party is not in favour of Ms. It is the only way to unite the country and strengthen our bargaining power with the EU.

May's government has said its Brexit plans remain the same, and will be pressing for close economic ties but a clear break with the bloc to be able to control immigration and restore sovereignty over British laws.

The the two will have dinner before attending the France vs England football game later in the evening where there will be a minute's silence for the victims of the London and Manchester attacks.

"We are going into these talks with the national interest at heart", she said.

Former Prime Minister David Cameron said May needed to listen to rival political parties, and that there would be pressure for a softer Brexit.

Macron and May are also expected to discuss the need for closer cooperation at the European level to fight terrorism, which they discussed at the G7 in Italy and at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels late last month.

"But we have to be honest, it will take much more than that for us to be convinced that the DUP tail is not wagging the Tory dog", he told reporters.

Mrs May stressed Brexit would happen and the timetable remains on course.
