Brexit could be a matter of life or death for Northern Ireland

  • Talks to strike deal with DUP ‘ongoing’ says Downing Street

"One of them of course ... is the Brexit negotiations, those have started formally today so we've put in place the work to enable us to reach that deep and special partnership with the European Union that we believe is not just in our interests but also the interests of the European Union for the future".

Strand Two of the agreement deals with crossborder institutions which promote mutual prosperity in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has seen off a leadership challenge and, against all odds, now leads a united party that looks like a government-in-waiting.

The prospect of the DUP getting everything it wants from London in exchange for propping up the Conservative government adds fuel to an already tense situation.

"The most right-wing and reactionary party in northern Ireland will be backed by the most right-wing and reactionary major party in Britain, directly the product of British imperialism's history of intervention and domination in Ireland", he commented, pointing out that the UDA and UVF paramilitaries had backed the DUP in this month's General Election.

And opposite the Maybot - her brain romping through the wheatfields of her youth, her mouth regurgitating the same old schtick about working with the DUP and all sides of the Irish divide for a better and more prosperous blah blah blah - he seemed positively Socratic.

For its part, the Dublin government - a member of the EU - is anxious by the adverse political and economic effects of May government's courting of the DUP and her negotiations to leave the union.

With May still hammering out the details of a post-election deal to stay in power with the support of a small Northern Irish party, there are fears of a disorderly exit that would weaken the West, imperil Britain's $2.5 trillion economy and undermine London's position as the only financial centre to rival NY.

"But it's not very strong and stable".

His successor, Theresa May, made the mess worse by putting party before country.

Leaving the EU - the biggest blow since World War Two to European efforts at forging unity - is now the official consensus of both the Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party.

The talks to achieve a "confidence and supply" arrangement with the right-wing Northern Ireland party have proved tortuous, despite Ms May's hopes of a quick success. So why not unite with the south and stay in the EU?

Mr Davis will have his first formal meeting with European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier to thrash out a framework for the talks.

Today, the Brexit secretary became the pussycat of the summer - in the eyes of Brussels - as he declared his pleasure that Brexit negotiations would indeed be in the sequence desired by the rest of the EU.
