Damian Green Admits Tory-DUP Deal May Not Be Possible

Damian Green Admits Tory-DUP Deal May Not Be Possible

It is also expected to include the Great Repeal Bill which will copy EU legislation into United Kingdom legislation and reverse the 1972 European Communities Act, according to the BBC.

The case would follow a similar legal challenge to the successful one led by investment banker Gina Miller, who forced the government into gaining authorisation from the Commons to proceed with Brexit. But she did say the government is looking forward to a planned state visit by the Spanish royal couple set for July.

"There is also an obligation on the new Taoiseach and his government to step up to the plate to assert their role as co-equal guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement".

He said he did not see any possible deal breakers.

And he's promised to keep pressing the issue.


The Queen confirmed that there would be a full public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire and that an independent public advocate, who will act for bereaved families after public disasters, would be introduced.

In light of recent terror attacks in Manchester and London, existing laws would be revised, but no new bills were announced.

"So there needs to be a step-change in how government is done here".

While powers will be revised, there was no mention of police resources. What we are insisting on achieving, is a special status for Northern Ireland that allows the interaction on this island as is now the case to be maintained as close to the current norm as possible. The speech is voted on by the Commons, but rarely by the Lords.

May had hoped for an overwhelming election victory that would silence dissenters and give her a mandate to push ahead with plans to leave the European Customs Union and drastically limit immigration as Britain leaves the EU.

Buckingham Palace said that Philip, 96, was admitted a hospital as a precaution for treatment of an infection. A deal is "certainly not imminent", the Irish Times report.

May's own position has been called into question ever since her decision to call a snap election.

"She knows that the Conservative party didn't get an absolute majority, but was by far the largest single party".

This is another extraordinary failure on the part of the prime minister, heaped on top of the extraordinary failure of the general election itself.

Tory sources have insisted the government is confident of winning support for its legislative agenda, with an agreement with the DUP still expected to be signed on Thursday, well before next week's crucial parliamentary vote on the Queen's speech.

The Government claims it will allow Parliament the time to properly scrutinise the complex process of Brexit, but opposition parties say the Conservatives are anxious they will not get the support required to pass another Queen's Speech once Brexit negotiations get tough.
