'Softer' Brexit on the Horizon, UK Businesses Breathe Sigh of Relief

British Prime Minister Theresa May failed to strike a government deal in an initial round of talks with Northern Ireland's ultra-conservative DUP party on Tuesday, leaving the EU's Brexit negotiator wondering when divorce talks would begin.

A senior member of the Democratic Unionist Party has declared that "the future's Orange" as it stood on the brink of a deal to allow Theresa May to stay in power.

DUP's leader Arlene Foster, with MPs Nigel Dodds and Jeffrey Donaldson, has been locked in talks in Westminster for two days with senior Tories including the chief whip, Gavin Williamson.

"We haven't negotiated, we haven't progressed".

After the meeting with Ms Foster, Mrs May joined MPs in the House of Commons, where opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn arrived to applause from his lawmakers.

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

In contrast to May's disappointing election result, Macron's party is expected to claim between 415 and 445 seats in the lower house when next Sunday's snd round of voting concludes.

The Government has actually acted in good faith and I think again this is just being, trying, looking for something with which to attack the Government and what they should do is to concentrate on the realities of the situation.

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

London's neutrality is key to the delicate balance of power in Northern Ireland, which was once plagued by violence over Britain's control of the province.

Trump Gives Mattis Authority To Set US Troop Levels In Afghanistan
Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, added that he hoped Afghan troop casualties would be lower a year from now. On Saturday, three United States soldiers were killed when an Afghan soldier opened fire on them in eastern Afghanistan.

"The people of Britain have had a bellyful of promises and politicking".

"There is a lot of anxiety and a lot of fear out of what is being discussed".

Among other ideas, he said the party should change its name to the Conservative Workers Party and develop a campaigning arm along the lines of Momentum or Vote Leave.

May has promised to start the formal Brexit talks next week but her authority has collapsed since the election result and opponents took her woes as a chance to push back against her Brexit strategy.

"My preoccupation is that time is passing, it is passing quicker than anyone believes because the subjects we have to deal with are extraordinarily complex".

Michel Barnier urged Mrs May to "very quickly" start talks and appoint a negotiating team that is "stable, accountable and with a mandate" with the clock ticking to March 29 2019, when the United Kingdom is expected to leave after the two-year Article 50 process.

"As a matter of fact in this case it's not for me to say whether or not this decision should be questioned - the decision to leave the European Union - but until the negotiations come to an end, of course there is always the possibility to re-open the door".

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.

To loud cheers, he said: "Now as parliament returns, we have a government in complete disarray still unable to reach an agreement, it seems, with the DUP and desperately delaying the Queen's Speech and Brexit negotiations".

"But we do want to do so in the national interest to give stability to the government and that's why we will be entering these negotiations", she said.
