Brexit negotiators believe end to Irish border impasse is near

Brexit negotiators believe end to Irish border impasse is near

Britain could technically remain a member of the European Union after 2019 to secure special status for Northern Ireland, a London law firm has suggested.

They took to the streets to ask random British people about Brexit's impact on Ireland, and they asked them to draw a line on a blank map of Ireland showing where the Republic ends and the North begins. There is undoubtedly an ever-increasing usage of nasty, jingoistic language by certain sections of the Brexit brigade, built on the shaky mythology of past imperial glory and imagined superiority.

The UK and the European Union are working against the clock to reach a compromise on the Irish border that will allow a breakthrough in Brexit talks at a key meeting next week.

Mairead McGuiness, an Irish MEP, called on her colleague Diane Dodds, an MEP from Northern Ireland, to use her "incredible influence on the United Kingdom government" and urge the government of Theresa May to come up with a solution that will take into account the "abilities and sensitivities of all sides".

However, appearing on BBC2's Newsnight, Mr Creed said that they had yet to see a workable solution from the UK.

It adds that sources in Dublin said there had been "movement" on the issue, and there was confidence a deal could be reached at the European Union summit in December.

"If the United Kingdom has clearly said no to a single market and customs union, it is clearly incumbent on the British Government to articulate a way forward that enables us to have an invisible, seamless border which they have said they want", he said.

European Union negotiators have long-warned that talks can not move on to the UK's future trading relationship with the European Union until "sufficient progress" is made on three key issues: the border, citizens rights and the so-called Brexit bill.

"I've been accused by some of using this issue in a way that's inappropriate to try and put pressure on the British side in terms of the Brexit negotiations - that's simply not true", he says. "If there is no border we might as well do away with the internal market". I don't think that is a problem at all.

"The truth is that Northern Ireland is different from other parts of the United Kingdom because we agree to do things on an all-Ireland basis - in other words it's different to Wales and Scotland, and that's just a pragmatic difference".

Mr Paisley is one of 10 DUP pro-Brexit MPs who are propping up Theresa May's minority government on key votes.

"We are not about convergence here, we are about co-operation".
