Softer Brexit now possible, not DUP's priority

Otherwise, Mrs May will have only two weeks, until Friday 12 April, to return to Brussels with a new proposal or the United Kingdom will leave with no-deal.

Former Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams and current leader Mary Lou McDonald were among around 300 people demonstrating on a bridge near the border town of Newry, above the motorway linking Northern Ireland capital Belfast to Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland.

Talks are continuing between ministers and the party in a bid to get its support for a possible fourth vote on the withdrawal agreement.

"That is only sign an agreement, which treats Northern Ireland the same as the rest of the United Kingdom".

The DUP believes binding Northern Ireland to single market rules would create a regulatory border between the region and the rest of the United Kingdom - a move, it contends, that would undermine the constitutional integrity of the Union.

He urged May's government to "return to Brussels on these issues and not simply to accept the position of the European Union as being unalterable". "The Government must use the remaining time to deal with widely held concerns across the House of Commons". We need to apply the handbrake to this process.

Sinn Féin said it is to meet European Union leaders to insist that the treaty is not reopened.

After trying to remain above the Brexit fray since negotiations between the United Kingdom and European Union began nearly two years ago, Merkel is becoming much more active, as the threat of no-deal looms.

The European Union has made clear it will not reopen the divorce deal in which the backstop is enshrined.

"They have been seduced by the games at Westminster at the cost of farmers, the economy and the views of the majority in the north".

Mr Gauke said the United Kingdom government can not afford to ignore the will of Parliament if it votes for a "softer" Brexit.

Border Communities Against Brexit spokesman Declan Fearon warned a crash Brexit is "increasingly likely".

Local student Aine Quinn, who lives along the border, said Brexit will bring economic chaos to the area.

Fianna Fáil's spokesperson on Housing, Planning and Local Government has said a national discussion on Brexit must take place so people know what will happen in two weeks' time.

"It remains correct that no deal is better than a bad deal, which Mrs May's concoction of vassalage most certainly is".
