UK PM May’s party confident of sensible deal with NIrish DUP-minister

Agencies, LONDON

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party is confident of securing a “sensible” deal with the small Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said today.

“We’re having good constructive discussions and I’m confident that we’ll reach a sensible agreement,” Grayling told BBC radio. “The talks are going on, they are going well.” May lost her parliamentary majority in a snap election she called on June 8, and she will need the support of the DUP to pass laws.

Grayling said the DUP were not interested in another election and added there should not be a change of prime minister amid questions over May’s own position after the botched election campaign and her response to a deadly London tower block fire in which at least 79 people died.
