UK Parliament opening date set, suggesting Tory deal reached

While May has repeatedly said she wants a special and deep partnership with the club Britain joined in 1973, she has also laced her assurances with threats that a breakdown of talks could harm security cooperation.

While 53 percent of those surveyed outside of the United Kingdom would like votes on whether to remain within the region, only 18 percent said they would back leaving.

After the 2017 election meltdown saw the Conservatives lose their majority in Parliament, Theresa May was forced to seek the help of a smaller party to keep them in Government.

The talks are taking place three months after Prime Minister Theresa May formally triggered the two-year Brexit timetable.

"We want to see a Brexit that works for everybody, not just for Northern Ireland", she said.

"As you know the Queen's Speech has been now set for next Wednesday". But public trust in the government is faltering, and May's own poll ratings have plummeted since Election Day. She also said that the talks with May's party had covered corporation tax and same sex marriage.

"We are starting", Barnier said on Twitter.

Barnier's interview will heap yet more pressure on May, who called a snap general election to give her a stronger hand at the Brexit negotiating table.

The Conservative source said the talks to leave the European Union would not be delayed, removing the question mark over the negotiations being derailed by May's lack of a parliamentary majority lost in an election she did not need to call.

And he said they should now drop their claim that "no deal is better than a bad deal" on Brexit, warning: "No deal has never been a viable option".

"As we enter negotiations next week we will do so in a spirit of honest co-operation, taking a pragmatic approach, trying to find a solution that works" for Britain and the European Union, he said.

May's government has said its Brexit plans remain the same, and her Brexit minister David Davis will be pressing for close economic ties but a clear break with the bloc to be able to control immigration and restore sovereignty over British laws. Labour is seeking regular meetings with the most senior civil servant at the Department for Exiting the EU. "All the options are balanced and come with obligations", an European Union official working on Brexit said, noting that May had seemed to be looking for a sweeping free trade deal like that agreed previous year with Canada but that some of those calling for "soft" Brexit cited arrangements such as those with Norway and Turkey.

According to The Scottish Farmer DUP MPs have promised that the party will fight for a secure future for farmers and fishermen in Northern Ireland and across the UK.
