UK PM May makes no comment after DUP talks

May said on Tuesday that talks with the DUP had been productive - a view shared by DUP leader Arlene Foster - and that Brexit negotiations would begin as planned next week.

Mrs May was attempting to thrash out a pact with Mrs Foster at a meeting in Downing Street to prevent the collapse of her administration.

May had called the vote early in hopes of strengthening her majority going into talks on exiting the European Union.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn countered with a bit of previously unseen swagger, wearing a huge red rose - his party's symbol - in his lapel as he sparred with May and taunted her about the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming vote on her legislative program, known as the Queen's Speech.

"It is clear that our country faces some of the greatest challenges of our time", she told parliament.

"We are ready as soon as the United Kingdom itself is ready", he said.

While the details of the proposed deal are yet to be made public, the ruling Conservatives have said a lose alliance is expected rather than a formal coalition government. Former British Prime Minister John Major said he was concerned May's plan to govern with the support of the DUP could pitch the province back into turmoil by persuading "hard men" on both sides of the divide to return to violence.

The Irish republican Sinn Fein party - which won seven seats in the election although MPs traditionally don't take up their seats in protest - is also wary of the alliance. "There's a lot of anxiety", Sinn Fein MP Michelle Gildernew told AFP. Some involved in the Irish peace process are alarmed because the 1998 Good Friday peace accords call for the British government to be neutral in the politics of Northern Ireland.

Barton said he did not see much more of the shooting because he was taking cover to protect his young son, who was also there. Will Hurd is responding to Wednesday's shooting on Twitter writing, "Devastated to hear about this morning's shooting".

The talks with the DUP follow her apology to Conservative rank-and-file lawmakers in a meeting for the party's poor election result.

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has warned London not to waste time, as Brussels waits for embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May to name a date for talks.

"That's why we're ready to start very quickly".

Meanwhile, the chief European Union negotiator has told the Financial Times that the clock is ticking on Brexit talks, and that Britain should be wary of further delays.

With the two-year clock on Brexit ticking since March, when a letter from May formally started proceedings, Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would prompt only further instability.

CIVIL WAR Brexit minister David Davis has insisted the approach to the European Union divorce has not changed, but May has recognized that a broader consensus needs to be built for Brexit and has made clear she would listen to all wings of the party on the issue.

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".

The EU meanwhile unveiled plans to give itself new powers over London's banking business after Brexit, in what could be a blow to the city's supremacy as a global financial hub. "I think there is a unity of goal among people in the United Kingdom", May said following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday.
