EU Parliament negotiator wants Brexit clarity from London soon

The Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), the Ulster Unionists and the Alliance Party - which all failed to win any seats in the general election - said they would also meet May.

The Northern Ireland-based party is being courted by May to create an alliance to push through the Conservative Party's agenda after a disastrous snap election left May short of a majority in Parliament. Labour surpassed expectations by winning 262.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, which saw its number of parliamentary seats and share of the vote increase, said there could be another election this year or early in 2018 after last Thursday's vote produced no clear victor.

Many senior Conservatives say May should stay, for now, to provide stability.

In the hours immediately after Thursday's embarrassing election setback for the Conservatives, British media reported that finance minister Philip Hammond had told May she needed to put "jobs first" in any new deal with Brussels.

Brexit minister David Davis has insisted the approach to the European Union divorce has not changed, but May has recognized that a broader consensus needs to be built for Brexit and has made clear she would listen to all wings of the party on the issue.

He acknowledged that the government would now be unable to get numerous measures promised in its election platform through Parliament.

The election has "been a jolt to the country's exit plans, raising the fears of diehard Brexiteers, the hopes of those favouring a more limited separation from European allies and the question of whether May will be around to steer the course she's charted toward a sharp rupture", wrote my colleagues Griff Witte and Karla Adam.

"Overall, we believe that the election outcome will hamper Brexit negotiations and increase fiscal risks, and therefore be negative for the U.K.'s credit profile", Moody's said in a statement. "And I confirmed to President Macron that the timetable for the Brexit negotiation remains on course and will begin next week", she added.

"I got us into this mess, and I'm going to get us out", May told Conservative MPs during a meeting in Westminster.

The two sides are looking to form a "confidence and supply" arrangement.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said the government was not looking at a formal coalition but would seek assurances that the DUP would vote with May "on the big things".

Trump criticizes Republican healthcare reform
The CBO also determined that healthcare costs for older Americans and people with pre-existing conditions would increase. However, Trump reportedly told the senators who attended the meeting not to rush their draft of the bill.

DUP leader Arlene Foster said there had been "positive engagement" so far. This will not make her task any easier, although there will be some who argue that these alternative views might bring something valuable to the table.

However, the potential deal has been met with considerable criticism in light of the eurosceptic DUP's controversial stance toward issues such as gay marriage and abortion, both of which they oppose.

During his time in office, Major helped to start the process that eventually led to the end of violence and a finely balanced local assembly in Belfast - where power is shared between the mainly Protestant unionist community, which celebrates its British heritage, and the mainly Catholic nationalist community, which identifies as Irish.

"Now they are obliged to be so in the wording of the Good Friday Agreement and others".

The PM told the backbench 1922 Committee on Monday a deal with the DUP would not affect power-sharing talks in Northern Ireland or LGBT rights.

But Ruth Davidson, the pro-EU leader of the Conservatives in Scotland, called on May to "reopen" the government's Brexit plans. The speech will be followed by several days of debate and a vote. Without the amendments, he said Labour would try to vote down the speech.
