Cabinet briefed on plans for Government deal with DUP

18 Junio 2017, 12:03 | Crisanna Felipe

May left Downing Street without responding to reporters' questions on whether an agreement had been reached with the DUP, which is needed to help the Conservatives command the majority they lost in last week's election.

The arrival of DUP leader Arlene Foster followed a Cabinet meeting, during which ministers went over plans "to deliver the best possible Brexit deal" according to a government spokesman.

Earlier this week, in a joint press conference with Mrs May, French president Emmanuel Macron claimed the door is always open for the United Kingdom to remain in the European Union before Article 50 negotiations are concluded.

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. May reportedly took full responsibility for the result but vowed to lead the Tories through the term if MPs backed her. Her gamble failed spectacularly.

He said: "We will continue to take the fight to the Tories and I will be out campaigning around the country in Conservative marginals in those extra seats we need to gain to deliver the government for the many that nearly 13 million people voted for last week". But the prospect of a deal has prompted warnings that it could upset Northern Ireland's fragile peace.

The Prime Minister's comments came after predecessor Sir John Major warned that an alliance with the DUP at Westminster risked undermining the impartiality of the UK Government as attempts were made to restore the powersharing administration in Stormont. "This new arrangement is very unsettling and people are concerned and anxious about what it may mean, or what promises may be given".

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

"If there are difficulties with the Northern Ireland executive or with any one of a number of things that might well arise during the Brexit negotiations, it is very important that there's an honest broker. That's why we're ready to start very quickly".

The party continued that any deal agreed between the two parties could affect the ability to form a new Stormont Government.

"I think there will be pressure for a softer Brexit", Mr Cameron added, saying that Parliament now "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.

Britain and the European Union now have less than two years to conclude exit negotiations before the UK's departure date at the end of March 2019.

The prime minister's spokesperson only confirmed an "update on the on-going talks with the DUP" took place as the ministers gathered once again in the wake of last week's disastrous election.
