Brexit talks will begin on Monday despite Britain's political chaos

"But, let us be clear and organized and once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more hard to move backwards", he noted.

Thus, the British Government by forming any alliance or "confidence and supply deal" with the DUP or any other party from Northern Ireland directly contravenes this global agreement in regards to IMPARTIALITY i.e. favouring one over the other of the parties in Northern Ireland.

Almost a year to the day since the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, the process of Brexit finally begins on Monday.

Most European leaders would welcome as close a relationship with Britain as possible, but they remain adamant that the more benefits Britain wants from the EU, the more sovereignty it will have to leave in the hands of Brussels.

Following her meeting with Mrs May, Alliance Party leader Naomi Long said the PM had "sought to give us her reassurance on neutrality". A Turkey-style deal which would keep the the EU's customs union and outside the common market is also back in play.

At a press conference with May, 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.

"I agree. But like Alice in Wonderland, not all the doors are the same". It begs the question whether May's government, apparently rudderless and without real power, can realistically hope for getting a deal out of Europe when its own social problems seem to have reached a boiling point at home.

Speaking alongside Mr Macron, the PM said: "We have been very clear we want to maintain a close relationship and a close partnership with the European Union and individual member states into the future, including in the areas we've discussed this evening. Their position on this was very similar to the Conservative position according to their manifesto".

Britain Prime Minister Theresa May is now left to form and lead a minority Government with the backing of North Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party with divergent views on issues such as gay marriage and abortion.

The performance of the British economy could also influence perceptions: Data on Wednesday showed average weekly pay in the three months to April was down 0.4 percent, year-on-year, in inflation-adjusted terms - the biggest fall since the three months to September 2014.
