Theresa May verging closer to Brexit deal but is facing cabinet resignations

Brexit negotiators eye Monday breakthrough, N.Irish party ups the ante

He said: 'She [Theresa May] has declared herself to be a unionist, she has repeated that time and time again, she knows the consequences if she walks away from that promise, not just for Northern Ireland because of course she will open a Pandora's box in Scotland as well.

"Brussels wants Northern Ireland to have access to the EU single market and trade within the rules set by the EU under the European Courts of Justice".

"We are working, not just with the domestic preparations we need to do, but with the Belgians, the Dutch and the French to make sure that not just passengers going on holiday, but also goods can continue to flow".

They are insisting any arrangement that would see the United Kingdom remain part of the customs union after the Brexit transition period ends in December 2020 until a permanent trade deal can be thrashed out must be strictly time-limited - something the EU has been resisting.

Another paper, from the Department for International Trade, said the United Kingdom would lose the benefits of about 40 European Union agreements delivering preferential tariffs and enhanced market access to more than 70 non-EU countries, which between them account for 12% of Britain's trade.

The EU says there needs to be major progress at a summit in Brussels next week if the two sides are to strike a divorce deal before Brexit day.

The DUP is propping up Mrs May's minority government and on Wednesday they threatened to vote down the budget and move to topple the government if the Prime Minister breaches their Brexit "red lines".

In a strongly-worded article in the Belfast Telegraph, Mrs Foster warned against the EU's backstop proposal and also stressed that she would not accept any measure that resulted in extra checks for goods travelling between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The landfall process has been completed and "the centre of eye of cyclone " Titli " lies over the land", the IMD said. The Bay of Bengal often witnesses cyclones at this time of year, with some causing widespread death and destruction.

"This backstop arrangement would not be temporary".

The prime minister is rumoured to be making a statement later on Friday to clarify her position.

David Davis has issued a dramatic call to cabinet ministers to stage a mutiny against Theresa May to kill her Brexit plan.

He added: "We are simply reminding her, you are being torn at the moment between what we believe are your gut instincts and your sound principles on the Union and at the same time the bullying, threatening behaviour of the EU".

Britain will have to pay Brussels billions of pounds if it stays part of a customs union with the EU after Brexit as part of a deal to keep the Irish border invisible.

Brussels wants a more long-term customs solution if talks fail - and reports said May told her Brexit "war cabinet" she was ready to accept the EU's terms.

At least three Brexit-supporting Cabinet ministers are understood to be considering resigning in protest if May capitulates to European Union demands on the time-limit, the Telegraph reported.

He told BBC's Newsnight: "Political resignations are part of the landscape". "The Irish question is obviously ultra hard", Juncker said.
