DUP demands May stands up to EU on border
Mrs May THERESA May has been warned by the DUP not to cave into EU demands over the Irish border.
Chancellor Philip Hammond had suggested the Brexit backstop to keep it open could be implemented, for a period of time.
But the DUP’S Sammy Wilson said there would be “consequences” for Mrs May if she walked away from her promise to protect the Union.
He told 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.
“Go with your principles and show the EU negotiators the door.” Mrs May insisted she would never agree a deal with the EU which “traps” the UK in a customs union.
But that failed to ease concerns among Leave ministers with speculation growing some could quit. It came as the Government released its latest batch of documents revealing scenarios in the event of a no-deal. Eurostar services could be “severed”, there may be border delays and Brits could be banned from using Netflix or Spotify in the EU, the papers warn.
Former Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis warned: “Brexit will bring about travel chaos.”
