UK's Hammond says economy should be priority in Brexit talks

18 June, 2017, 00:05 | Author: Caleb Marshall

Former 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.

Having lost a majority in parliament, May needs the DUP's 10 lawmakers to win any kind of vote, including on the pieces of legislation needed to enact Britain's divorce from the EU.

A DUP spokesperson said there had been a break in tasks due to parliamentary business.

A source in May's Conservative Party said talks continued on Friday.

"The issues that have to be dealt with have been talked about now for quite a period of time", she said.

Leo Varadkar made his comments after meeting with the leader of the DUP which is in talks to keep May in power.

But a deadly fire at a tower block in London could delay the announcement of any deal, BBC political reporter Norman Smith said. We want to end the anxiety facing 4m citizens.

The Conservative source said this meant the party was "confident" it had enough votes for the programme to be approved, after May suffered a disastrous setback in snap elections a week ago that saw her lose her majority in the 650-seat House of Commons, just ahead of crucial Brexit negotiations with Brussels.

His comments come after a top Iranian general claimed the Islamic Republic had evidence the US was directly supporting the group. Following the incident, the so-called Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the bombings.

On his talks in London with Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday, he said they had offered an "Irish solution to an English problem" as giving Northern Ireland special European Union status after Brexit to keep an open border on the island.

"It takes two to tango and we're ready to dance", she said.

May wants to negotiate the divorce and the future trading relationship with the European Union before Britain leaves in March 2019, followed by what she calls a phased implementation process to give business time to prepare for the impact of the divorce.

Mrs May has said Britain will leave both the single market and the customs union.

May's botched election gamble has left her so weakened that her Brexit strategy is the subject of public debate inside her party, with two former prime ministers calling on her to soften her European Union exit approach.

Britain's Brexit ministry said on Friday that no deal could be struck on exiting unless the future relationship with the bloc was taken into account.

Arriving to a meeting with his counterparts in the 28-country EU, Hammond said his "clear view" is "we should prioritize protecting jobs, protecting economic growth and protecting prosperity as we enter those negotiations and take them forward".

On Brexit, Ms Foster said her party wanted to see "a sensible Brexit and one that works for everybody".
