UK PM May will face leadership challenge if she softens Brexit

Sveva Terracina | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:07

Strikingly, since the election, Prime Minister May, has seemed unwilling to accept the message of a divided nation, appearing intent on proceeding to govern as planned with the support of a socially conservative party from Northern Ireland, with the likely effect that divisions over Brexit, austerity and the Union will be exacerbated.

The taoiseach and the British prime minister are expected to reaffirm their shared goal of maintaining the special relationship between both countries.

Prompted by her poor election showing, particularly among pro-EU young people who fear losses of jobs and opportunity from Brexit, some of her most senior ministers and two former Conservative prime ministers have called for a rethink.

"We spoke about the very important need for both governments to be impartial actors when it comes to Northern Ireland and that we are co-guarantors of the Good Friday Agreement, and that any agreement that may exist between the Conservatives and the DUP should not in any way impact on the Good Friday Agreement", he said.

Almost a fifth of the UK's food and drink exports go to the Republic of Ireland and in March industry bodies from across the British food and drink sector wrote an open letter to various government departments calling for "frictionless" tariff-free trade with Ireland to continue post-Brexit.

"We remain committed to a comprehensive outcome to the talks and one that, critically, sees the re-establishment of our institutions".

The UK Government has warned that direct rule from London could be reimposed if the local parties fail to reach an agreement before the June 29 deadline.

Northern Ireland has been without a powersharing executive since March and without a first and deputy first minister since January, after Sinn Fein collapsed the administration amid faltering trust and relations with the DUP.


"There have been positive engagements today between ourselves and Sinn Fein", he said.

Coolum Eastwood of the Social Democratic and Labour Party also expressed doubts: "The prime minister will have to do a lot more to convince us that the DUP tail isn't wagging the Tory dog".

"We want to see an administration set up again that will last and one that will last for all of the people of Northern Ireland", said Ms Foster outside Dublin's Government Buildings.

Sinn Fein's Stormont leader, Michelle O'Neill, said her party was up for striking a deal.

According to The Scottish Farmer DUP MPs have promised that the party will fight for a secure future for farmers and fishermen in Northern Ireland and across the UK.

Arlene Foster, who holds the balance of power at Westminster, wants a "sensible" Brexit.

The UK General Election will have left Theresa May and Brexit negotiators floundering in the run up to today's initial meetings and how Britain will be looking to leave the European Union may have also fundamentally have changed, with the DUP having provided support to the Tories to remain in control by way of a minority government.
