DUP leader returns to Northern Ireland, talks continue

The Conservative source said the talks to leave the European Union would not be delayed, removing the question mark over the negotiations being derailed by May's lack of a parliamentary majority lost in an election she did not need to call.

Talks with the DUP to secure her government broke up on Tuesday night without an agreement, but Mrs May said the discussions had been "productive".

An organiser for the Women's March said the event was "for self-defining women, kids, non-binary people and all who love and support us".

The decision to announce a new date for the Speech, two days later than its scheduled date of June 19, was made after Mrs May's regular audience with the Queen on Wednesday.

May has dismissed calls to resign following the dismal election result and on Monday faced her MPs and vowed to govern.

The DUP leader is nearly certain to ask for greater investment in Northern Ireland as the price of a deal.

Among the ten MPs that the Tories want to bring onside is Ian Paisley Jr, the son of "Save Ulster from Sodomy" founder Ian Paisley, who also founded the DUP.

But a deal with the DUP risks destabilising Northern Ireland by increasing the influence of pro-British unionists.

"There is an irony to being lectured about our role in terms of the national government of the United Kingdom when Sinn Féin wants to be in government here in the Republic of Ireland".

Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein said the prospect of a British agreement with the DUP was causing anxiety and fear.

Gerry Adams led a delegation to Government Buildings including Ms O'Neill, Sinn Fein deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald and newly-elected Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

Labour would be wiped out, the Conservatives would be in power for the next 15 years and with a huge parliamentary majority and public mandate, Theresa May would enter the Brexit talks with a strong negotiating hand.

"It's passing quicker than anyone believes..."

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

European politicians also appeared to detect a shift in the mood around Brexit, with France's Macron saying the door was open until the negotiations had concluded for Britain to remain a member of the EU.

Guy Verhofstadt, the European parliament's chief Brexit negotiator, warned on Tuesday that "the current uncertainty can not continue" and on Wednesday issued five "pressing questions" on Twitter.

Liberal Democrat MP Alistair Carmichael said: The Conservatives can not go from weak and wobbly to business as usual in three days. The Conservatives are considering an arrangement in which the Northern Ireland party backs May on the budget and her confidence motions.

Arlene Foster told ITV news, 'There's been a lot of hyperbole talked about our position to the gay community.

Former Prime Minister David Cameron said May needed to listen to rival political parties, and that there would be pressure for a softer Brexit.

May faces a hard balancing act.

Yet many of her lawmakers and party members favour a sharp break with the European Union - a sign of the divisions over Europe that helped sink the premierships of May's predecessors Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Cameron. Government bond prices suffered heavy losses on Tuesday after consumer price inflation jumped to 2.9 percent in May.
