United Kingdom electoral body says investigating Labour-backing campaign group Momentum

BRITAIN-EU-POLITICS-BREXIT

May said: "We will ensure there is no hard border between Northern Ireland the Republic of Ireland, we will do that while we respect the constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom and while we respect the internal market and protect the internal of the UK".

"The DUP tail is wagging the Tory dog", stated Starmer, referring to the deal stuck between the government and the DUP to clinch the crucial handful of votes it needed in order to govern.

It comes after a bruising couple of days for the Prime Minister who was forced to call off a deal with the European Union on progressing talks to trade issues following an intervention by DUP leader Arlene Foster.

Brexit divorce talks were close to an agreement on the Irish border on Monday before collapsing after the DUP vetoed a plan to allow close regulatory alignment between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The DUP objected to a clause in a draft agreement with the European Union that would guarantee "regulatory alignment" between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Mrs May is due to update ministers at a cabinet meeting later.

The Electoral Commission, Britain's election watchdog, said it was looking into a range of issues, including whether the campaign group exceeded spending limits or submitted incomplete or inaccurate expenditure records.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson called for a UK-wide deal, rather than specific arrangements for Northern Ireland.

Earlier, the state Department threatened to impose sanctions against Myanmar for violations of the rights of the Muslim Rohingya. The United Nations defines genocide as acts meant to destroy a national, ethnic, racial or religious group in whole or in part.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said there should have been 1.5billion reasons as to why the Prime Minister should not forget the DUP.

He believed the DUP had been spoken to beforehand about what was being proposed, but that the precise wording had not been explained and the Northern Ireland party "clearly thought twice".

Former top Foreign Office official Lord Ricketts said the row was "damaging" for Mrs May, adding that it was "pretty extraordinary that this wasn't all stitched up with the DUP beforehand".

The prime minister insists that "very good progress" is being made in negotiations.

"It's clear that the Democratic Unionist Party, 10 members of parliament from Northern Ireland, are holding this government to account, are holding this government round the neck, because it's much more important for the prime minister to hold onto power than it is to do what's in the best interest of all of our nations", Said Murray.

Talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker broke up without agreement on Monday, although both sides said they were hopeful of getting a deal by the end of the week.

The prime minister is expected back in Brussels for further talks before the end of the week.
