DUP accuses May of breaking Brexit's "Irish Sea border" promise

Theresa May's Brexit plan was once again called into question after her Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) allies sent out a letter from her "Alert" warning that she could not rely on her support to push through the proposals to get the parliament.

The party accused the prime minister of breaking a promise that she would never sign a deal treating Northern Ireland differently than the rest of the UK. It was angered by a letter in which May was warned that EU negotiators continued to press for Northern Ireland to remain in the Single Market and in the Customs Union should the talks collapse.

The DUP relied on a particular paragraph – seen by the Times – in which May said it could not accept any circumstances or conditions that could put the United Kingdom customs territory into effect.

The DUP leader Arlene Foster Tweeted on Friday: "The letter from the Prime Minister is calling for alarm bells to those who value the integrity of our valuable union and those who wish a proper Brexit for the whole of the UK. Her letter indicates that the Prime Minister is in touch with the idea of ​​a border between the Irish Sea and NI in the framework of the EU regulatory regime. "
