Leo Varadkar warns Theresa May that they need progress in Brexit talks

Theresa May Comes Under Pressure With The Brexit Deal

Prime Minister Theresa May's top ministers involved in Brexit strategy agreed this week on a new last-resort plan to avoid a hard Irish border, having rejected earlier proposals from the European Union, the newspaper said.

"It is an absolute redline for us that there could not be a hard border on Ireland", Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar told reporters in Sofia.

The move is created to placate Dublin and Brussels, which have warned they will block a trade deal unless Britain guarantees there will be no "hard border" in Ireland.

As rightly put by the Netherlands Foreign Affairs minister that the main goal is to complete the deal within the scheduled time and they all are expecting for the best but sadly there can be no assurance of doing the same.

What did the Prime Minister propose to the Taoiseach?

He said it was Mahathir's prerogative to form the cabinet, but noted he had given assurances that he will consult party leaders. Separately, Malaysia and six countries are investigating defeated prime minster Najim over corruption at the state fund 1MDB.

Reacting to the white paper announcement, Labour Brexit spokesman Paul Blomfield said: "It is deeply disturbing that, after yet another meeting, the Cabinet still can not agree on the most fundamental Brexit issues".

The border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland remains an obstacle on the Brexit talks' agenda as the UK's exit from the European Union may create difficulties for the free movement of goods and workers between the Republic of Ireland and the UK's Northern Irish counties.

However, Theresa May has already said that she wants to avoid free movement and wants to "seek a new customs arrangement with the EU" which "may contain elements of the single market".

Brexit Secretary David Davis said the so-called White Paper would include "detailed, ambitious and precise explanations" of the government's positions ahead of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union in March 2019.

Bradley was questioned about arrangements for the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after Brexit and told the committee there will be no new cameras on the border.

He added: "It remains the Northern Ireland secretary's view that a majority of people in Northern Ireland continue to support the current political settlement, and that the circumstances requiring a border poll are not satisfied".

Senior ministers met on Tuesday to discuss the government's options for future customs arrangements, but failed once again to agree.

"If the United Kingdom wants to put forward alternatives ... we're willing to examine that".

The Times reported that the attorney general - the government's top lawyer - has been asked to provide an urgent legal opinion on both proposals before a decision is taken.

Until recently, "backstop" was a reference to the UK's government commitment in December 2017 for a customs solution that would help to secure an open border in Ireland even if negotiations failed.
