I'm here as long as you want me, May says

British officials held "talks about talks" with the European Union's Brexit man in Brussels but actual negotiations, scheduled to start in a week's time, might be delayed by political upheaval in London.

"I talk to politicians from every party in order to make sure that we get the right approach", he told the show.

While some MPs would have liked to hear these sentiments sooner, her words appear to have been quite effective.

"Our position remains that we want to get the best possible deal for the United Kingdom", he said.

However, there was also the sign of battle lines being drawn.

With the two-year clock on Brexit ticking since March, when a letter from May formally started proceedings, Mr Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would prompt only further instability.

The notable rise came after Labour gained 30 extra seats in the election on 8 June, exceeding expectations and preventing Theresa May from winning her desired majority in Parliament.

A failure to gain support from the Northern Irish party would risk the Queen's Speech being voted down, with Labour promising to put forward an amendment setting out a programme for an alternative government.

Mrs May addressed a packed meeting of the 1922 Committee for 90 minutes after her failure to win the election outright prompted days of speculation about her future.

John O'Doherty, of LGBT health group the Rainbow Project, said: 'It is time for government to respect the will of the people of Northern Ireland, which is overwhelmingly in support of civil marriage equality.

The Brexit negotiator asked London not to "waste time" and explained that it will take "several months to draw out the conditions of an orderly withdrawal, with hard and sensitive points of discussion".

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.

"I think there will be pressure for a softer Brexit", Mr Cameron added, saying that Parliament now "deserves a say" on the issue.

The snap election was called by May for her personal and Conservative Party interests and not in the public interest.

She mocked Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a socialist, as incompetent and unrealistic, but his electoral campaign energised the youth vote and wiped out the Conservatives' majority in parliament.

About two hours after the talks began, May emerged from 10 Downing Street without saying anything and left in a vehicle. "We are united in our total condemnation of terrorism and our commitment to stamp out this evil", May said ahead of her visit. While the Conservative Party did receive the most votes, it was only about 2 percent more than the Labour Party, which was expected to lose by about 20 percent when the election was called for, just two months ago.

The Unionists, led by Arlene Foster, want to minimise the impact of Brexit on Northern Ireland and its relationship with the Republic of Ireland - which will signal a need for a much less hardline approach to the forthcoming Brexit negotiations with the EU.

The DUP and Sinn Fein have also been at loggerheads recently over the collapse of a power-sharing agreement in Northern Ireland that has meant the province has had no government since January.

The prospect of a deal has caused consternation in Dublin, with Irish premier Enda Kenny warning such an alliance could upset Northern Ireland's fragile peace.
