UK PM Theresa May will face leadership challenge if she softens Brexit

"We would restore faith in politics if we could show that this parliament can at least function in presenting a view in the national interest which would command a majority on a cross-party basis", said veteran pro-European Conservative lawmaker Ken Clarke.

The Taoiseach said he would be emphasising this to the Prime Minister.

Corbyn also stressed that the inquiry should have sufficient scope to establish "all the relevant facts and to ensure that all necessary lessons are learned".

Certainly one of the requests will be for more money for Northern Ireland in helping with infrastructure, and money for schools and hospitals.

He warned that a deal between the Conservatives and DUP would be in breach. "However, we need to do it in a way that respects the specific circumstances of Northern Ireland, and, of course, our shared history and geography with the Republic of Ireland". However, it seems unlikely he will be able to resist public comment on the Brexit process, which he has described as a "tragedy".

Open, wasn't going to rattle the muscular Floridian, no matter how much fescue, distance and sharp edges the course can dish out. He came and kicked everyone's [behind] over there, didn't he? "I've been there a handful of times and had some good finishes.

British Prime Minister Theresa May plans to put her programme to parliament next week, a sign of confidence that talks on propping up her government will conclude in a deal and end days of uncertainty since she lost her majority.

Abolishing Air Passenger Duty is one of the DUP's key demands as it pits Northern Ireland unfavourably against the Republic of Ireland, where the duty has been abolished.

He added: "A fundamental part of that peace process is that the United Kingdom government needs to be impartial between all the competing interests in Northern Ireland".

"The Democratic Unionist Party might prove a stable ally for Britain's Tory government, but only in the short term", Communist Party of Ireland general secretary Eugene McCartan predicted on Sunday.

May received members of Northern Ireland's other political parties on Thursday to reassure them that any deal with the DUP would not affect the government's neutrality in Northern Ireland.

Prime Minister Theresa May said she would chair an emergency meeting of the government's COBRA committee on Monday morning. The Metropolitan police have confirmed that the driver of the van that rammed into a crowd of people is a 48-year-old man.

In a letter to Mr Hammond, Mr McDonnell said: "I am writing to ask whether the Government has been asked for this measure by the DUP, has agreed to it or is considering it".

Hammond has no direct part in Brexit talks which begin in Brussels on Monday but his new confidence means he is likely to press May and other ministers to prioritise the economy in the complicated negotiations for Britain's European Union departure.

Rule over Northern Ireland is due to revert to London if parties fail to reach a deal on a power-sharing government, but what that means for the country if the DUP is a part of that government at Westminster remains to be seen.

"We will oppose any deal which undermines the Good Friday agreement", Sinn Fein president, Gerry Adams, told reporters outside May's Downing Street residence, in reference to the 1998 peace deal that ended three decades of sectarian violence.
