Foster sends warning over Northern Ireland-only backstop

Foster sends warning over Northern Ireland-only backstop”

I have looked carefully at no-deal.the United Kingdom could certainly get through it, but, be in no doubt, that outcome would be a failure of statecraft for which we would all be responsible. The EU's new trade commissioner Phil Hogan also said there was "movement on both sides" as the Prime Minister revealed he wanted to look at an all-Ireland solution to issues including agriculture.

"I am an enthusiast for that idea, I'm going to put it out there, I think it's a good idea but again that is the kind of project that should be pursued by a dynamic Northern Ireland government championed by local people with local consent and interest, backed by local business and mobilised by the politicians in Northern Ireland", he said.

DUP chief whip Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has dismissed the notion the DUP's influence on the Government is "waning" and than the Government is seeking a Northern Ireland-only backstop.

Ms McDonald said the stakes are very, very high and North and South are in the situation together.

The Democratic Unionist Party has previously suggested a bridge linking Scotland and Northern Ireland would go a long way to breaking the Brexit deadlock, as it would negate the need for a border in the Irish Sea.

She pointed out that Brexit negotiations are between the British government and the European Union and added: "The DUP, the Assembly, nobody can have a veto in delivering what are very, very necessary and bottom line protections".

"During today's meeting, the Prime Minister confirmed his rejection of the Northern Ireland-only backstop and his commitment to securing a deal which works for the entire United Kingdom as well as our neighbours in the Republic of Ireland".

The claim came from Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald who warned that the DUP and the Stormont Assembly should not have a veto on a potential Northern-Ireland only backstop to avoid a hard border.

But Mrs May was unable to convince them to vote for her Brexit deal.

"That is why the Northern Ireland backstop is flawed".

"We want to see the referendum result implemented".
