May's key ministers hold 'secret talks' with Labour to force soft Brexit

At the same time she has brought in the more emollient figure of Damian Green as First Secretary of State - a title often associated with the role of deputy prime minister - based in the Cabinet Office, in a limited reshuffle of her top team.

But late Monday afternoon, May suggested there may be some flexibility after all, promising in a contrite appearance before her party's backbenchers to "listen to all voices" in the party on Brexit and build a more consensual approach. "We know those talks are going well and also we know that, at this very important time, we want to produce a substantial Queen's Speech".

LONDON, June 12 Finance firms in Britain say they are pushing ahead with plans to move staff and operations to continental Europe, despite a chance that the government may soften its "Hard Brexit" policies after losing its parliamentary majority.

Also under consideration is whether to exclude overseas students in the immigration numbers and even possibly to abandon the target to reduce immigration to the "tens of thousands".

A government relations official at another bank said the financial industry will still make a renewed attempt to lobby the government to secure more access to the single market, a staggered exit from the European Union and more relaxed immigration controls.

"Their position reflects the views of the overwhelming majority of people in Northern Ireland as well as a solid block of opinion in Britain".

DUP leader Arlene Foster signalled that the party was likely to stay away negotiating on controversial issues when she meets with May on Tuesday.

Third, it would need the European Union to agree, most likely by unanimous vote of all 27.

British Prime Minister Theresa May wanted a decisive majority for her government to improve her negotiation position on Brexit.

A cabinet member admitted that work was under way on how to achieve a deal with the EU27 that could pass through a much more finely balanced parliament, including seeking areas of compromise with other political parties, including Labour.

Mr Green's appointment is meant to reassure lawmakers that the days when government decisions were taken by a small cabal around the prime minister are now over, and that the new Cabinet will be more collegiate.

Theresa May is facing a showdown with Conservative MPs amid anger over the way the party saw its majority wiped out in the General Election. May's plans for sweeping reforms to education including new grammar schools could be boiled down to a few pilots, they said.

Meanwhile Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, tipped as a leading candidate to succeed Ms May if she steps down, also backed her on Monday.

"Being seen to be the prime minister" could help "shore up her authority at home", according to Colin Talbot, professor of government at the University of Manchester.

"We need to get on with the job of reducing the deficit so that we do not saddle the next generation with the burden of debt, and the larger the deficit the more money that should be spent on health and education is actually spent on paying down debt".

"Theresa May can squat in Number 10 as long as she wants but the message is stark - she has no power, no influence and her game is up", said Mr Farron. It is worth examining why this "own goal" has befallen the Conservative Party, not despite her political talents but because of them. "She was clear she was responsible". British voters turning their backs on the driver of the Brexit, opening their arms to the UK's Labour Party.

But her election failure means she must now go into Britain's most complex negotiations since World War Two with her eye firmly on the different factions within her Conservative Party, which has been divided over European Union membership for a generation. "She showed a side of her that was very appealing".

In October, EU summit chair Donald Tusk said: "The only real alternative to a "hard Brexit" is "no Brexit". "We are ready as soon as the United Kingdom itself is ready". "They're not compatible", he told BBC radio. May said that Justine Greening would address the concerns, and sources stressed that the education secretary had been making the case for better funding for schools for some time. Reporters outside the room heard a constant low rumbling of tables being approvingly banged, amidst cheers and shouts.

"There was none of the Maybot", one MP commented afterwards.
