UK leader holding alliance talks with NIreland party chief

DUP leader Arlene Foster, who travelled to Westminster for talks with the Tories on Tuesday, said she hoped a deal could be reached "sooner rather than later".

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

Meanwhile Denmark's finance minister said he hoped the outcome of the British election would lead to a pause to rethink the direction in which the Brexit negotiations were heading. She refused to debate Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn; she didn't hold big events to explain her plans for the country; and she came across as a bit robotic, tending to reuse the same catch phrases over and over again.

"It is clear that our country faces some of the greatest challenges of our time", she told parliament.

The talks revolve around support from the DUP on a vote-by-vote basis in parliament, rather than a formal coalition government.

A deal with the DUP could also risk destabilizing the political balance in Northern Ireland by increasing the influence of pro-British unionists who have struggled for years with Irish Catholic nationalists who want Northern Ireland to join a united Ireland.

The DUP and Sinn Fein have also been at loggerheads recently over the collapse of a power-sharing agreement in Northern Ireland that has meant the province has had no government since January.

Former Tory Prime Minister John Major warned on Tuesday that such a deal could lead to violence returning to Northern Ireland. This resulted in Theresa May winning more seats than any other party but, crucially, not enough form a parliamentary majority.

Meanwhile, the chief European Union negotiator has told the Financial Times that the clock is ticking on Brexit talks, and that Britain should be wary of further delays.

"So there is a lot of anxiety and a lot of fear out of what is being discussed". Some involved in the Irish peace process are alarmed because the 1998 Good Friday peace accords call for the British government to be neutral in the politics of Northern Ireland.

"May's instincts are probably to keep pushing for the hard Brexit that her right wing desires", wrote Charles Grant, director of the Center for European Reform.

May faced Conservative party lawmakers at a meeting of its 1922 Committee.

Perhaps the most significant of all for businesses, including the 800-odd Indian firms in Britain, will be the government's stance on Brexit, and whether the result will force the government to revisit its plans to deliver on a so-called "hard Brexit", moving out of the customs union and single market.

Persson, who is now head of worldwide trade at EY, said that while the overall timetable for Brexit can not now be changed, there was a way for the United Kingdom to buy time with Brussels whilst it sorts out its own position on a future relationship with Europe.

"My preoccupation is that time is passing - it's passing quicker than anyone believes".

Speaking alongside Mr Macron, the PM said: "We have been very clear we want to maintain a close relationship and a close partnership with the European Union and individual member states into the future, including in the areas we've discussed this evening". "We want to negotiate quickly, we want to negotiate in the agreed time frame", Merkel said.

With the two-year clock on Brexit ticking since March, when a letter from May formally started proceedings, Mr Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would prompt only further instability.

May is due to begin Brexit negotiations with Brussels on June 19 in a weaker position than before the June election.

Uncertainty over Brexit has already had a "negative impact on everybody in Europe, especially on Britain", said Mr Verhofstadt.
