United Kingdom leader holding alliance talks with NIreland party chief

Theresa May insisted the Government was "absolutely steadfast" in its commitment to the Northern Irish peace process as she faced questions on whether a DUP-Tory alliance would put fragile agreements at risk.

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.

The DUP founded by the Rev. Ian Paisley is a staunchly Unionist party with a deep Protestant Christian ethos which governs some if not of all of their policies.

Talks between Theresa May and the Democratic Unionist Party over a confidence and supply deal to prop up the Conservative Government have been "constructive", Downing Street has said.

Asked if that meant the Government would work with Labour, Mr Gove replied: "Well the parliamentary arithmetic is such that we are going to have to work with everyone".

The British government is walking a political tightrope as it balances its minority government's need for the Commons votes of its 10 MPs with its obligation to be neutral over the future of Stormont.

British officials held "talks about talks" with the European Union's Brexit man in Brussels but the negotiations might be delayed by the political upheaval in London. She waved but did not say anything as she went into Downing Street.

"But we are going into these talks with the national interest at heart", Foster had said ahead of the meeting.

Sills said the Honda Civic they carjacked at the killing scene was hidden in some woods, and they walked to the quarry from there. A photo of the two suspects after their capture was quickly shared by law enforcement and news agencies across the country.


Theresa May's failure to win a majority at the General Election has led to suggestions her Brexit plan to leave the EU's Single Market and Customs Union could be altered, while rival parties have demanded involvement in exit talks following the inconclusive result.

The BBC reported that a deal with the DUP was expected to be signed on Wednesday.

THE TORIES HAVE been told that forming a government with the DUP could jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland.

Michelle O'Neill, Sinn Fein's leader in Northern Ireland, said any deal between the Conservatives and the DUP "cannot be allowed to undermine" the province's peace accords.

The newspaper said one area of concern for the EU was whether those EU nationals living in Britain would be able to access the European Court of Justice, a "red line" for London.

Brussels has insisted talks on the so-called divorce, taking in issues including the fee the United Kingdom will have to pay to sever its ties, must make sufficient progress before any discussion on a future trade agreement could begin.

'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.
