European Union says there has been ‘no breakthrough’ in Brexit talks

Talks on the divorce deal are stuck on how to keep the border open between Northern Ireland, which is part of Britain, and European Union member Ireland to the south.

While May is reportedly ready to compromise on regulatory checks between Northern Ireland and mainland Britain, she has refused the idea of a customs border in the Irish Sea.

The plan would keep the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU until a free trade deal was reached.

The challenge for May will be in selling the formulation to the whole cabinet.

Penny Mordaunt, the International Development.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt insisted that ministers would not sign up up to any plan which compromised the territorial integrity of the United Kingdom by imposing a "border in the Irish Sea". 'An very bad lot depends on the talks in the coming days'.

The OBR said weaker economic activity and higher prices could result from a no-deal Brexit. "That was the case on Monday and it remains the case today", the prime minister's official spokesman said.

The EU suggests Northern Ireland stay aligned with its customs union and single market during that period, and there are signs the British government could accept elements of this plan.

May is struggling to contain restive hard Brexiters in her own party, and an angry DUP, which fears that she has already made too many concessions in negotiations going on behind the scenes ahead of next week's critical European summit in Brussels.

The European Union is doing all it can to ensure checks on goods moving across Northern Ireland's borders would be made "in the least intrusive way possible", for example on ferries, at ports or in factories of origin, he said.

Blasting the proposed deal, she said: "Trade from Great Britain into Northern Ireland would be in danger of restriction". Downing Street earlier warned there were "big issues still to resolve".

However, Mrs Foster said the EU's proposals would place "an effective one-way turnstile" between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

Michelle O'Neill, Sinn Fein's vice-president, responded by saying that "the DUP does not speak for the majority of the people of the north on Brexit".

Theresa May has been put on notice by her allies in the Democratic Unionist Party to change course on Brexit or risk the collapse of her government.

Whitehall sources said before the meeting that they expected that key members of the cabinet would also discuss how to handle the DUP.

"It was a warning: 'Don't take us for granted, we're in an agreement with you, but it's a two-sided agreement".
