Tory-DUP deal announcement 'delayed' due to London blaze

Pamela Guccione | 19 Giugno, 2017, 02:28

Theresa May has neared a deal with a Northern Irish Protestant party to save her leadership and confirmed Brexit talks would begin next week, amid calls for her to soften her approach to leaving the European Union.

"Talks with the DUP have been progressing well and there is broad agreement on the principles of the Queen's Speech", said the source. Although talks are said to have gone well, the fire tragedy in London, has delayed a deal being signed.

The leader of Northern Ireland's DUP has said that it is "complete and utter nonsense" to describe her party as homophobic.

The chancellor, Philip Hammond, is preparing to fight for the United Kingdom to remain within the EU's customs union which could safeguard jobs and trade with EU members but would severely restrict the UK's ability to strike its own trade deals around the world.

Despite the uncertainty over her ability to govern, May had confirmed that Brexit negotiations - expected to be the most complex global talks Britain has held for decades - would begin as planned next week.

The British prime minister is set to travel to Paris to hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron after the meetings today.

In the talks to restore the assembly, which began on Monday, issues such as the introduction of an Irish language act, supported by Sinn Féin but opposed by the DUP, could also prove crucial.

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.


"It's a unity of goal, having voted to leave the European Union, that their Government gets on with that and makes a success of it, and we are committed to developing a deep and special partnership with the European Union".

"And if that wasn't enough, calling an unnecessary general election purely for the self interest of the Conservative Party and having mucked that campaign up they are now putting the country in hock to the DUP".

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.

France's Macron said the EU's door was still open for Britain as long as the negotiations were not finished, but that it would be hard to reverse course.

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

Among these was whether Britain's position would "be the same as in the letter of March 29" when May triggered the two-year Brexit countdown.

Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's chief Brexit negotiator, warned Tuesday that "the current uncertainty can not continue" and on Wednesday issued five "pressing questions" on Twitter. She lost her majority and now needs to broker a deal with the DUP.
