UK leader holding alliance talks with NIreland party chief

A senior minister has said he was "optimistic" that the Conservatives and Democratic Unionists will reach an agreement in the coming days to allow a proposed Tory minority government get its plans for the year ahead through the Commons, possibly as early as next Monday.

The Orange Lodge of Portadown, a fraternal order of anti-Catholics that counts among its members David Simpson, one of the DUP's 10 members of Parliament, issued a statement over the weekend calling on the party to use its leverage with the prime minister to get her to permit its annual parade to once again pass through Catholic areas. "Hopefully we can make a bit more progress later on Tuesday", he said.

DUP leader Arlene Foster signalled that the party was likely to stay away negotiating on controversial issues when she meets with May on Tuesday.

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

As May attempts to cobble together a majority, the EU's Barnier said he will hold talks with British envoy Olly Robbins on Tuesday to organize the negotiations.

Addressing a meeting of backbenchers, Mrs May reportedly said she would serve as "long as you want me to do".

"It's going to be hard, there's no doubt about that, but perhaps an opportunity to consult more widely with the other parties on how best we can achieve it", Cameron told a business conference in Poland, according to a report in the Financial Times.

The European Parliament's Brexit negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, also expressed his frustration.

"There's no doubt that there is a new player on the stage".

"However, the Conservative Party's reduced share of the vote may indicate a higher likelihood that a "softer" form of Brexit might now be pursued, involving compromises with the European Union that Ms". As such, Foster will be arguing for a "soft" Brexit maintaining the open border with the Republic of Ireland, whereas May had been pushing for a "hard" Brexit.

At a joint press conference with Mrs May in Paris on Tuesday night, French President Emmanuel Macron suggested that the door was still open for the United Kingdom to remain within the European Union. "They may well discuss aspects of Brexit but the main focus will be on counterterrorism", May's spokesman said on Monday.

"To those that say the PM should step down, or that we need another election or even - God help us - a second referendum, I say come off it. Get a grip, everyone", he says.

"We stand at a critical time with those Brexit negotiations starting only next week - I think that stability is important".

He added: "I'm sure we all look forward to welcoming the Queen's Speech just as soon as the coalition of chaos has been negotiated".

Mrs May stressed that Brexit would happen and the timetable remains on course.

"It's a unity of objective, 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 EU".

"We want a solution that causes as little damage as possible for both sides", Schaeuble said.

After the discussions May joined MPs in the House of Commons, where opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn arrived to applause from his lawmakers. "The union as I've said before is our guiding star", she said.

But within the Conservative Party, the election recriminations are continuing.

The prime minister's most prominent potential rival, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, sought to quash any suggestion that she would be ousted imminently.

"We would restore faith in politics if we could show that this parliament can at least function in presenting a view in the national interest which would command a majority on a cross party basis", said pro-European Conservative lawmaker Ken Clarke. Davis confirmed that negotiations will begin with negotiating divorce proceedings before moving on to trade.
