Talks on DUP support for minority UK govt, to continue

The parties have been talking since the General Election, when the Tories failed to win a Commons majority.

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

But the failure to finalise a deal increases the chance of a delay to the government's programme being put before parliament in the Queen's Speech, scheduled for Monday.

Leaders planned to discuss efforts to minimize the potential damage to Northern Ireland during talks on Tuesday.

Foster's rivals in Northern Ireland, such as Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams, have objected.

Brexit minister David Davis has insisted the approach to the European Union divorce had not changed, but at the meeting with lawmakers on Monday, May recognised that a broader consensus needed to be built for Brexit and made clear she would listen to all wings of the party on the issue.

Foster will nearly certainly ask for greater investment in Northern Ireland as part of the deal, as well as guarantees on support for pension plans and for winter fuel allowances for older people.

Any demands on maintaining the pensions triple-lock and the universal winter fuel allowance could give Mrs May a convenient excuse to drop manifesto pledges which appeared to be deeply unpopular with voters.

The unexpected snap election has already forced the Queen to cancel an Order of the Garter service and to accept a stripped-down State Opening of Parliament.

Is everyone happy with this Tory-DUP deal?

Two decades later May's own grip on power is tenuous.

"The DUP may never have the political arithmetic so favourable again so like the Conservatives, the DUP will want to avoid another election and will want to keep drinking in the political free bar that is available to it", Tonge said.

Though Foster supported Brexit, she also might demand that May pursue a cushioned exit from the European Union, given her party's wish that a soft border remain between Northern Ireland and Ireland, an European Union member.

May on Sunday appointed an effective "Deputy Prime Minister" after her election disaster as long-time friend Damian Green was made First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office.

The Daily Telegraph reported cabinet ministers have opened back-channel talks to senior Labour lawmakers to secure a cross-party agreement on Brexit.

"I congratulate her on returning and I'm sure she'll agree with me that democracy is a wondrous thing, and can throw up some very unexpected results", he said.

The rise in members follows unsubstantiated reports that the party had gained 150,000 new members since the election, which were later proved to be false after a Labour Party spokesperson told The Independent they were not numbers they recognised.

"She was generous in acknowledging how sad we naturally felt that some of our colleagues had lost their seats and that was as a result of this election campaign being called at the time it was called".

But once this deal is done many questions emerge.

Even Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Minister, who was reportedly one of the main contenders for PM post, insisted May should stay.

He said: "It was great to have the chance to chat to Boris over the course of the weekend".

"We need to get on with the job of reducing the deficit so that we do not saddle the next generation with the burden of debt, and the larger the deficit the more money that should be spent on health and education is actually spent on paying down debt", he added.
