EU presses Britain to get its act together for Brexit talks

Ben STANSALL

Current plans to start negotiations in the week of June 19 may have to be delayed, experts said. Instead of strong and stable leadership we witness chaos and uncertainty."May, who had campaigned against Brexit past year, delivered her terms for withdrawal on March 29 that included a clean break from the European Union single market". Some compared her to her predecessor David Cameron, who sought to silence Eurosceptic fellow Conservatives by calling the referendum on European Union membership which ended his career and shocked Europe.

"I do hope that the results of the elections will have no major impact on the negotiations", European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said on Friday.

"We stand ready", said Mr Oettinger.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party's leader, said however that May should resign and let another party form a government.

German Chancellor Angela "Merkel will notice that, (French President Emmanuel) Macron will notice that".

But there are other people who at the moment are reaching the opposite conclusion; namely, that the prime minister, if she is able to stay in power, will actually have far narrower room for maneuver vis-a-vis the hard Brexiteers in her own Parliament and it will make it more difficult for her to make concessions in the negotiations in Brussels.

"The DUP [will be] using every ounce of leverage that they have to get the Westminster government to do things they want to do, in terms of the border", Bond said, pointing out that it is unclear from the DUP's manifesto exactly what type of border it wants with the Republic.

Norway's foreign minister, whose country twice voted against joining the European Union but has access to the bloc's single market, said Brexit talks would be "harder than we hoped" after Britain's result.

"EU is united, UK is deeply split". She then called a snap election hoping for a big majority to strengthen her negotiating hand.

Kurdish militants claim downing of Turkish military chopper
Defence minister Fikri Isik and other government ministers immediately left the capital, Ankara , for Sirnak, DHA reported. Turkish soldiers carry the coffin of Colonel Oguzhan Küçükdemirkol who was among 13 killed in the helicopter crash.

Attention will now focus on whether May can rule with the help of the staunchly pro-Brexit Democratic Unionist Party after they struck a deal on Friday.

"Looks like it was the Brexit election after all".

But he added, "I don't think we should read these results as calling into question the stance on Brexit which was clearly expressed by the British people". Meanwhile, EU leaders voiced concern that the British Tories' loss of their parliamentary majority would delay Brexit negotiations.

"Article 50 has been triggered and we were on our way".

S&P Global said the election won't immediately affect the country's credit ratings but warned it could create further uncertainty by potentially delaying Brexit negotiations.

"The timetable, whatever happens here, is likely to be pushed back", the former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader said.

Wobbling UK Prime Minister Theresa May faced a storm of withering criticism from European Union officials and politicians, accusing her of an "own goal" after she lost her parliamentary majority less than two weeks before the start of Brexit talks. "A vote for one to go and the other to be revisited". I think the standard, the most common interpretation now, is that the result probably makes it more necessary for the [British] government to take into consideration a wider range of views that would include a rather more cooperative set of negotiating aims.

Preliminary results indicate she will instead face a far tougher balancing act between europhiles and eurosceptics within her own party.
