Brexit talks left hanging as May tries to form alliance

British Prime Minister Theresa May failed to strike a government deal in an initial round of talks with Northern Ireland's ultra-conservative DUP party on Tuesday (13 June), leaving the EU's Brexit negotiator wondering when divorce talks would begin.
Talks between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) about a confidence and supply agreement are expected to continue on Wednesday after a meeting between Theresa May and Arlene Foster ended without a deal.
In a joint press meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace, May stressed that the "timetable has not changed and negotiations will begin next week", dismissing fears of a possible delay in Brexit talks after she lost parliamentary majority in a snap general election. "I'm not putting any timescale on when it will be done", the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters.
May made clear the Brexit negotiations would begin next despite uncertainty.

While the DUP are deeply eurosceptic, they have baulked at the potential loss of a "frictionless border" with the Republic of Ireland.
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.
With Ireland being a member of the European Union, its border would be the only land border between the European Union and Britain.
"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 specialises in Brexit at Royal Holloway college in London.
"They would see it as the government paying cash for votes in parliament, and in doing so I think that could well cost votes in the country for the Conservative party, by the bucketload, at a subsequent election", he said.
Ms May surprised Westminster on Tuesday by appointing Steve Baker, a leading backbench advocate of a hard Brexit, as a minister in the department for exiting the EU.
"We stand at a critical time with those Brexit negotiations starting only next week - I think that stability is important".
"We've already heard some of the things that have been asked for, issues that have been put to bed a long time ago are now raising their head again".
