Talks on DUP support for minority United Kingdom govt, to continue

Theresa May's stance might 'delay' EU-Brexit talks by a year

Top EU and British figures held "talks about talks" on Brexit Monday (12 June) but failed to nail down a date for the start of negotiations amid the fallout from Britain's chaotic election, officials said.

The newly elected French leader said that he hopes the exit talks will start as "quickly as possible" adding that the door is still open should Britain choose to stay.

A day after France and Germany both said Britain could reverse Brexit if it wanted, Verhofstadt said Britain's budget rebates and opt outs from European Union rules would disappear if it did so.

The five main Northern Ireland parties are meeting with the British Prime Minister separately at Downing Street. "The reality is that where we stand follows logically from leaving so, if we're leaving, what we need to do is do it smoothly and successfully and gain economic benefit".

"As we set out in the Article 50 letter, our view is that withdrawal agreement and terms of the future relationship must be agreed alongside each other", a spokesman for Britain's Brexit ministry said. But the European Parliament's Brexit co-ordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, said the United Kingdom could not expect the conditions of its membership to remain the same if it took this path.

"Like Alice in Wonderland, not all the doors are the same".

Lawyer says Trump not under investigation
Angus King (I-Maine). "It's inconceivable he's not under investigation in the obstruction investigation", the lawyer said. The committee sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday.

"Their position on this was very similar to the Conservative position according to their manifesto". "Party interest or national interest?"

But that looks increasingly unlikely as Conservative British Prime Minister Theresa May fights for her political life after unexpectedly losing her majority in parliament.

"The British government has said we will stay with the Brexit". She also said that the talks with May's party had covered corporation tax and same sex marriage.

However, this turmoil does not appear to have deterred May, who intends to lead Britain into talks with European Union figures next week, while back home she tries to arrange a minority government deal with Northern Irish party the DUP.

Major, who helped to bring about that peace, said he was concerned that May's arrangement with the DUP could pitch the province back into turmoil by persuading "hard men" on both sides of the divide to return to violence.

"We want to end the anxiety facing 4 million citizens", he said.
