Brexit deal reached following late-night negotiations on Irish border

May defeated in parliament over Brexit blueprint

Ireland expects the U.K.to make a new Brexit proposal by Friday as officials in London struggle to resolve issues surrounding the Irish border that are stalling talks over Britain's departure from the European Union.

The party that props up Prime Minister Theresa May said it only received the text of the draft Brexit deal late on the morning of December 4 and told the British government that the terms were unacceptable. Juncker spoke first with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar then with May on Thursday night in a bid to break a deadlock over the wording of a deal on future arrangements for the Irish border.

Commission European President Jean-Claude Juncker gave a speech at just before 7am saying sufficient progress has been made to move onto the second stage of the terms of the divorce.

Mrs Foster said that "substantial changes" to the text rejected on Monday would mean there was "no red line down the Irish Sea" in the form of a customs barrier between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

The party's opposition on Monday led to talks breaking down.


Confirming the PM's calls, a Number 10 spokesman said: "Discussions about taking forward the Brexit process are ongoing".

"We stand ready to receive Prime Minister May at any moment in time when they are ready", Schinas said, but warned: "This will have to have to happen this week".

In that scenario, the leaders would once again rule that insufficient progress had been made on the opening issues of citizens' rights, the financial settlement and the Irish border for talks on trade and a transition period to start. British factions have squabbled about how to preserve the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which depends on a borderless passage between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, as Britain seeks new trade independence that would typically require a border.

A spokesman for the Liberal Democrats, who are fighting for United Kingdom voters to be given a second referendum on any final Brexit deal, said: "So Theresa May has finally got a deal, but how long before it's torn apart by her own MPs?"

Before his elevation last month, Williamson was Theresa May's chief whip, tasked with keeping unruly members of her Conservative Party under control.
