Brexit talks left hanging as May tries to form alliance

18 Junio 2017, 02:04 | Crisanna Felipe

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.

Fierce bargaining has been going on over funds for tax cuts and infrastructure projects, as DUP leader Arlene Foster seeks to capitalise on her position as kingmaker after the election stripped the Conservatives of their overall majority. Her gamble failed spectacularly.

May plans a clean break from the EU, involving withdrawal from Europe's single market and customs union and limits on immigration from the EU.

It will allow the party to continue to govern without having to give up too much of their manifesto or Cabinet posts, which would be the case in a formal coalition.

Tory chief whip Gavin Williamson, who flew to Belfast for talks with the DUP at the weekend, took the lead for the Conservatives.

Demonstrators denounced what they called the homophobic and sexist values of the party, and argued that a Tory pact with the DUP could put the Northern Irish peace process at risk.

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

Sir Major told BBC Radio 4's World at One that if the Conservatives "locked" themselves into a deal with one of the main parties in Northern Ireland, there was a danger the government would no longer be seen as an "impartial honest broker" in restoring the power-sharing arrangements and upholding NI institutions.

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.

"There is a lot of anxiety and a lot of fear out of what is being discussed".

May appointed Steve Baker, a prominent Brexit campaigner, to the Department for Exiting the EU.

An organiser for the Women's March said the event was "for self-defining women, kids, non-binary people and all who love and support us".

British officials held "talks about talks" with the European Union's Brexit man in Brussels but actual negotiations, scheduled to start in a week's time, might be delayed by political upheaval in London.

Sinn Fein's Stormont leader Michelle O'Neill said: "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".

The European Parliament's Brexit negotiator, Mr Guy Verhofstadt, also expressed his frustration. "The current uncertainty can not continue", he said on Twitter.

But Mr Macron appeared to suggest the United Kingdom could change its mind about Brexit, saying: "Of course the door remains open, always open, until the Brexit negotiations come to an end". "Talks are going well".
