May in talks with Northern Irish parties over DUP deal

May in talks with Northern Irish parties over DUP deal

According to United Kingdom media the party's leadership want to speak with Theresa May about her proposed deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and the formation of the Northern Executive.

May is looking for support from the DUP after failing to win a majority for her Conservative Party in last week's elections.

"The danger is that however much any government tries, they will not be seen to be impartial if they are locked into a parliamentary deal, at Westminster, with one of the Northern Ireland parties".

Theresa May has signalled she is "confident" of getting the Queen's Speech through the Commons whether or not a deal is reached with the Democratic Unionists (DUP) by the State Opening of Parliament next week.

Adams said that Sinn Féin would oppose any such deal between the two parties.

Although the DUP are unionists - wanting to remain part of the United Kingdom - and broadly support numerous policies of the Conservative and Unionist Party (as the Conservatives are correctly called), May's proposed deal could scupper attempt to broker a power-sharing deal with Sinn Fein - which promotes the unification of Ireland - on the Northern Ireland Executive.

"I will be in London and Dublin over the coming days for talks with both Theresa May and the new Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar", she said.

An announcement on an agreement may not come until next week as it is thought it will be delayed as a result of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

While the DUP continue to hammer out the details of the arrangement with the Tories, the other four main parties at Stormont confirmed they would be meeting Mrs May on Thursday.

The DUP leader said: "There's been a lot of commentary around the issues that we are talking about and it won't surprise anyone that we are talking about matters that pertain, of course, to the nation generally".

But the other Stormont parties have warned that any deal between the DUP and Conservatives could make restoring power sharing more hard.

The prime minister, he said, has also "just totally ignored the will of the people of Northern Ireland in terms of Brexit", he added.

One of the most pressing issues facing Mrs May is the process of leaving the European Union, with Brexit talks set to start in Brussels on Monday.

Mrs May stressed Brexit would happen and the timetable remains on course. "We want to govern ourselves".
