Brexit Secretary Denies DUP Has The Whip Hand In EU Talks

A video of the exchange at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham was posted on Owen Jones' YouTube channel on Tuesday evening.

She said: "I think the reason why so many people are turned off by Brexit is because they are being fed a diet of negativity - whether it's infighting, Brussels, being disrespected by people over there".

Many Conservatives expect her to face a leadership challenge soon after Brexit day - or even before.

Mrs May went on: "When we've secured a good Brexit deal for Britain, at the Spending Review next year we will set out our approach for the future".

Her speech also saw her claim that Labour are unfit for office, calling the party's response to antisemitism allegations a "national tragedy", and repeatedly condemning Jeremy Corbyn for questioning the United Kingdom intelligence services over the Salisbury poising attack.

Theresa May has ruled out a second referendum saying "we had the people's vote and the people chose to leave".

The meetings follow the continuing rejection by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May of any customs border along the Irish Sea, should the backstop to avoid a hard land border on the island of Ireland come into effect.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says her Conservative government plans to scrap years of cost-cutting austerity policies introduced after the 2008 global financial crisis.

She added that her government was now entering the toughest phase of the negotiations and she urged her party to rally behind her under her much criticised Chequers plan. "For the first time in decades, it will be this country that controls and chooses who we want to come here", May said in a statement.


It was one of the biggest speeches of her political career.

The border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland is the last major sticking point in Brexit talks, with both sides trying to work out how to monitor and regulate trade over the border.

Following warnings that a no-deal Brexit would be a disaster, she will say: 'I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise.

The speech contained little that was new or surprising for European Union officials in Brussels, who noted similarities with May's Salzburg address, where she declared she would not accept a border in the Irish Sea dividing Great Britain from Northern Ireland.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney said Mrs May had given clear guarantees to protect all parts of the Good Friday Agreement around Brexit negotiations.

Speaking to BBC Radio Four at the Conservative Party conference, Foster said "There can not be a border down the Irish Sea, a differential between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK".

She also took some subtle shots at Mr. Johnson, poking fun at a recent profane comment he made about business leaders by saying she also had a four-letter word for business - "back", as in "back business".

Theresa May waves after giving her keynote address on the fourth and final day of the Conservative Party Conference 2018 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, U.K., on October 3, 2018.
