Northern Irish nearly evenly split on whether to remain in the UK

Michel Barnier

The development came as Mrs May braced herself for possible defeat in the Commons next week on an amendment which would require her to try to negotiate a permanent customs union with the remaining EU.

He told Sky News: "There has never been a period where government have been asked to do such complex things as we're being asked to do around the Brexit process - disentangle Brit after 40 years of European Union membership - and there are, I imagine, a number of issues that will still come up that will be hard". He said on Wednesday the backstop proposal was still being discussed but he expected a decisive conclusion to the talks on Thursday. "The temporary backstop is not in line with what we want or what Ireland and Northern Ireland want and need".

United Kingdom contractor Offshore Marine Management is urging members of parliament to consider the impact of Brexit on the offshore renewables industry ahead of the latest debate on the EU Withdrawal Bill next week.

But he said: "We are not going to be intimidated by this form of blame game".

In a pointed reference to the absence of Brexit secretary David Davis and his negotiators from Brussels for much of the first half of 2018, he said his team were "happy and ready to step up the frequency of our discussions".

Pro-Brexit campaign group Leave.EU have attacked Lord Malloch-Brown as a "puppet for George Soros" and chief "Remoaner", while another group, Leave Means Leave, has launched a fundraising drive among supporters to "secure the swift, clean Brexit you all voted for".

"Of the eight demands made in FTA's list of essentials to "Keep Britain Trading", issued at the beginning of the year, not a single one has been progressed", he said.

Companies face an extra 20 billion pounds ($27 billion) a year in costs to comply with the customs arrangement if there is a no-deal Brexit, Britain's most senior tax official said on Tuesday.

When asked how respondents would like to see Northern Ireland governed, 42.1% said they would choose a devolved Northern Ireland Executive at Stormont. "A people's vote must be held before March 29, 2019, to decide our country's future", the organization said in its roadmap.
