Britain, EU to begin Brexit negotiations on Monday

May is holding talks Thursday with other Northern Ireland political parties amid warnings the expected DUP deal will undermine the peace process. As the European Union has itself said, "nothing is agreed, until everything is agreed".
The UK Government wants the talks to take place in parallel during the Brexit process but both sides have made finding a solution to the issue of citizens' rights a priority. The performance of the British economy could also influence perceptions: Data on Wednesday showed average weekly pay in the three months to April was down 0.4 percent, year-on-year, in inflation-adjusted terms - the biggest fall since the three months to September 2014.
May is set to meet with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland on Tuesday to cobble together a deal to ensure her minority government can get its Queen's Speech through Parliament.
Put together, May's case for a hard Brexit is extraordinarily weak - something that negotiators in Brussels will see coming before Davis and his team have a chance to step off the Eurostar train.
Even with a deal nearing to secure her government's survival, May is so weakened that her Brexit strategy has become the subject of public debate inside her own party, with two former prime ministers urging her to soften her approach.
Nigel Farage, UKIP, and the Brexit referendum may one day be counted among the saviours of the European Union.
