DUP head: Talks with UK Conservatives going well

  • Q&A What you need to know about confidence and supply deals

"We've had some very good discussions today and those discussions are continuing this afternoon", she said.

Pressed on the reports, Environment Secretary Michael Gove declined to deny it.

The nationalist Sinn Fein and SDLP and the cross-community Alliance have all made clear Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire can not chair the ongoing process to restore power-sharing at Stormont due to the perceived conflict of interest.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who wields considerable influence after the Scottish Tories won 13 seats, said: "I want to ensure that we can look again at issues like Brexit which we know we are now going to have to get cross-party support for".

'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 was reported by the FT as saying at a conference in Poland on Tuesday.

Even some Republicans have grudgingly admitted if this investment is forthcoming from the central government in London it could be a good thing for Northern Ireland.

"The focus has to be on plan A, which is to get the institutions in place, that is our focus and we would like to think it will be the focus of the incoming taoiseach", he said.

With her authority diminished, May won some time when she performed well on Monday in front of Conservative lawmakers who said they would help her remain in power, at least for now.

"The danger is that however much any government tries they will not be seen to be impartial if they are locked into a parliamentary deal at Westminster with one of the Northern Ireland parties, and you never know in what unpredictable way events will turn out, and we can not know if that impartiality is going to be crucial at some stage in the future".

A fourth soldier was wounded and is being treated for injuries. "That Afghan soldier was also killed following the incident". Two US soldiers have been killed after an Afghan army soldier opened fire on them in eastern Afghanistan , an official says.

Liberal MEP Guy Verhofstadt is demanding "clarity" from British negotiators on issues including the Good Friday agreement and the rights of European Union nationals.

The stakes for May are high.

"If that's not possible, the Labour Party stands ready to offer strong and stable leadership in the national interest".

The two-year negotiation process between EU Brexit chief Michel Barnier and Britain's Brexit minister David Davis had been due to formally start on June 19.

He also pointed out that three months after Article 50 had been triggered, formal discussions had yet to start.

"My preoccupation is that time is passing - it is passing quicker than anyone believes - because the subjects we need to deal with are extraordinarily complex from a technical, judicial and financial point of view".

"I can't negotiate with myself", he added. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community.

We're thankful for your support in every way.
