Britain's May Confident on Deal to Stay in Power

19 June 2017

THE TORIES HAVE been told that forming a government with the DUP could jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland.

Representatives of then-Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne met senior figures in the DUP for secret talks after the 2015 election - where pollsters had incorrectly predicted a hung Parliament.

Deputy Leader Nigel Dodds is leading the DUP delegation to London as party leader Arlene Foster has returned to Northern Ireland, the spokesman said.

A secret deal outlining what would happen in the event of a hung Parliament was drawn up between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) following the 2015 general election, a leaked document has revealed. The government announced on Thursday, however, that the queen's speech, which outlines its legislative agenda, will go ahead next Wednesday.

The Prime Minister is to hold talks with political leaders from Northern Ireland in a bid to allay fears the anticipated parliamentary deal with the Democratic Unionists will undermine the peace process.

But speaking in Dublin after a meeting with the new Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the DUP leader Arlene Foster said it was down to Sinn Fein whether an agreement is reached.

Ministers have already said that the Queen's Speech may have to be set back from its scheduled date of next Monday June 19, because of the ongoing negotiations.

"And we told her very directly that she was in breach of the Good Friday Agreement and we itemized those matters in which she was dilatory or in default in relation to that agreement", the Guardian reported.

May's programme will most probably have to be watered down, dropping some of her preferred reforms to help get legislation through Parliament and possibly having to give way to other ministers who have strong views over the direction of Brexit.

Tories have made clear since last week's election that their discussions with the DUP revolve around assurances of support in key Commons votes, rather than a full coalition.
