UK Govt brushes off Brexit threat by N. Irish allies

The Northern Ireland party, which backs Theresa May's minority Conservative government in key votes at Westminster, has made it clear the radical move is on the table if the prime minister breaches their red lines in the Brexit negotiations.

The 27 European Union states will get an update on the negotiations at a meeting of national ambassadors, without Britain, on Friday evening.

Can all three ever be satisfied with the terms of a Brexit deal?

"I'm sure they too will be persuaded the alternatives - of no deal or potentially a Corbyn government - would not be of benefit to them or Northern Ireland", he said.

May gathered selected members of her cabinet late Thursday to update them on the Brexit talks, and the Financial Times reported that she told them that a deal was drawing closer.

The issue of the Irish border, the major sticking point, was "close to being settled", it said. It must be one of the worrying questions for Downing Street.

Following three days of talks with key figures in Brussels, DUP leader Arlene Foster said Mrs May could not in "good conscience" accept the proposals now on the table from the European Union. Barnier is attempting to negotiate such a deal, but time is running out and European Union leaders have made it clear that they expect Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May to come up with a way to unblock talks before next week.

Hurricane Michael damage pictures: Horrifying scenes as Hurricane FLATTENS Florida homes
It appeared to be so powerful that it was expected to remain a hurricane as it moves into Alabama and Georgia early Thursday. The National Hurricane Center said Michael would pass through the Carolinas, dumping as much as 20cm of rain in some areas.

The nature of those criteria, and additional language to be used about the future deal, required by the United Kingdom to assuage concerns about the ultimate need for such a backstop solution to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland, are still open to debate. Hard Brexiters are concerned the United Kingdom could remain locked into the backstop arrangements indefinitely, particularly if it proves difficult to conclude a free trade deal.

In addition, Northern Ireland would remain under large parts of single market regulations, requiring enhanced checks on products arriving from Britain, particularly agricultural goods.

A Brexit deal is "within reach" next week, European Union negotiator Michel Barnier said on Wednesday (Oct 10), even as he rammed home his insistence that Britain must accept possible checks on trade between its mainland and Northern Ireland.

The DUP has threatened to vote against the government's budget if it goes ahead with the plan. She'd be ripping up her guarantee to support the PM in the commons.

The DUP has stepped up warnings to British Prime Minister Theresa May not to compromise over the border on the island of Ireland in her efforts to secure a Brexit deal.

Barnier told small business leaders that the talks were "continuing intensively this week, day and night, with the aim. of having a deal within reach, if we follow through to the end of this negotiations, on October 17".
