Boris Johnson 'on brink of Brexit deal' after border concessions

Source: The Guardian

Boris Johnson appears to be on the brink of reaching a Brexit deal after making major concessions to EU demands over the Irish border.

A draft treaty could now be published on Wednesday morning, according to senior British and EU sources.

It is understood that the negotiating teams have agreed in principle that there will be a customs border down the Irish Sea. The arrangement was rejected by Theresa May as a deal that no British prime minister could accept.

Johnson will still have to win over parliament including the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) and the hardline Tory Brexiters, the European Research Group on the basis that, under the deal, Northern Ireland will still legally be within the UKs customs territory.

1. If Boris were a carpenter

he'd probably build houses with only a chainsaw and a hammer.

3. LOL, they're laughing at him beyond the Pale.

I'd expect the DUP will flatly reject a customs border between England and N. Ireland.
