PM May nears DUP deal

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 04:22

The former prime minister, who began work engaging with the IRA to end the Northern Ireland conflict, said the peace process was still "fragile" and cautioned the pact could mean the Government will no longer be seen as impartial.

Meanwhile, Downing Street said that talks between Theresa May and the DUP over a confidence and supply deal had been "constructive".

"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".

DUP sources told the BBC an announcement on a deal with Tories had been delayed because of the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

But the Government will press ahead with the first round of Brexit talks two days before the official opening of Parliament.

After failing to achieve a majority, May is set to meet with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland on Tuesday to cobble together a deal to ensure her minority government can get its Queen's Speech - a key annual event in which the government lays out its policy agenda for the coming year - through Parliament. But party president Gerry Adams has called the DUP-Tory alliance chaotic and he said on Monday that a referendum on Irish unity was inevitable.

It calls on the governments in London and Dublin to be neutral in their dealings over Northern Ireland.

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

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.


"This new arrangement is very unsettling and people are concerned and anxious about what it may mean, or what promises may be given".

"My preoccupation is that time is passing - it's passing quicker than anyone believes".

"We never put timescales on when we expect a deal to be done and I'm not going to start now".

'I think there will be pressure for a softer Brexit, ' added Cameron who quit past year after Britons voted to leave the European Union, against his advice, in a referendum that he had called.

"I think there will be pressure for a softer Brexit", Mr Cameron added, saying that Parliament "deserves a say" on the issue.

"But we do want to do so in the national interest to give stability to the government and that's why we will be entering these negotiations", she said. "The current uncertainty can not continue", he said on Twitter.

With formal European Union divorce talks due next week, May heads to France on Tuesday to meet Emmanuel Macron, who last month swept to victory in the presidential election.

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.

The two leaders also discussed the fight against terror, and said they would launch an Anglo- French campaign to help firms clamp down on online hate speech.
