EU's Brexit negotiator puts pressure on UK

The deal May has brokered with the DUP leader Arlene Foster involves giving an economic boost to Northern Ireland, but agreeing to disagree on some social policy issues, including LGBT rights and same sex marriage.

DUP leader Arlene Foster arrived for talks with May. "We hope soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion".

A DUP source was reported to have said the two sides were finalising the agreement that would enable Theresa May to form a government with the support of 10 DUP MPs.

"Bringing stability to the United Kingdom government in and around issues around Brexit, obviously around counter-terrorism, and then doing what's right for Northern Ireland in respect of economic matters".

May is also scheduled to meet French President Emmanuel Macron later in the day.

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

Toll rises to seven in Meghalaya landslide
The latest disaster caused by heavy rainfall has taken the landslide-related death toll in the Northeast this week to 17. Out of these 1 has been referred to NEIGRIHMS hospital, 2 to Ganesh Das Hospital and 6 to Civil Hospital, Shillong .

The Times newspaper said finance minister Philip Hammond would push May not to leave the customs union - an arrangement which guarantees tariff-free trade within the bloc but prohibits members from striking third-party trade deals.

A Downing Street spokesman said details will be discussed and agreed by cabinet on Monday, after which more information is likely to be released.

Yesterday, May had faced the tough 1922 Committee of her party's backbench MPs amid a brewing rebellion within the ranks after her gamble to call a snap general election backfired, leaving the Tories eight seats short of a majority.

"One thing we can say for certainty, there is going to be a referendum on Irish unity", he said.

She tweeted that she felt that the DUP had leverage over the government.

The unionists have struggled for years with Irish Catholic nationalists who want Northern Ireland to join a united Ireland.

Manchester United 'told versatile Tottenham star Eric Dier will cost £50m'
Chelsea are planning to hijack United's move for Madrid striker Alvaro Morata , according to reports in the Sunday Mirror . However, any attempts to lure him away from north London will cost United £50m, says the Telegraph .

Despite the uncertainty over her ability to govern, May had confirmed that Brexit negotiations - expected to be the most complex global talks Britain has held for decades - would begin as planned next week.

The Liberal group leader, former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, has listed a series of questions that remain open after last week's elections: Will the "hard Brexit" hypothesis be maintained?

An organiser for the Women's March said the event was "for self-defining women, kids, non-binary people and all who love and support us".

The European Parliament, which named former Belgian prime minister Verhofstadt as its Brexit pointman past year, will have the final say on any deal on Britain's exit from the EU.

Macron said the door was "always open" for Britain to remain in the European Union as long as the negotiations on Brexit have not finished.

The newspaper said Britain wanted these rights to be available only to those European Union nationals who were living in the country before March 29 this year, when the government triggered the start of the two-year process of leaving the EU.
