UK PM May would have to look closely at customs union if parliament votes for it: minister

UK PM May would have to look closely at customs union if parliament votes for it: ministerBritish Prime Minister Theresa May would have to look closely at pursuing a customs union with the European Union if parliament votes for it, justice minister David Gauke said on Sunday. In a first round, the idea of seeking a customs union with the European Union was one of the most popular options, although it fell just short of a majority. Asked by BBC TV whether May would have to go back to the EU and negotiate for a customs union if parliament voted for it, Gauke said: “I think she would need to look very closely at that.” “If parliament is voting overwhelmingly against leaving the European Union without a deal but is voting in favor of a softer Brexit, then I don’t think it is sustainable to say we will ignore parliament’s position and leave without a deal.” Gauke also said May’s three-times defeated deal was not dead, and was still one of the options open to lawmakers.

UK won't accept Brexit deal that puts union at risk: PM's party chairman

UK won't accept Brexit deal that puts union at risk: PM's party chairmanBritain cannot accept an EU proposal to break the deadlock in the Brexit talks because it would threaten the unity of the United Kingdom by treating Northern Ireland differently, the chairman of the ruling Conservative Party said. The issue of how to maintain an open border on the island of Ireland is at the heart of the dispute between London and Brussels after British lawmakers objected to the so-called backstop insurance policy which they believe would keep the whole of the UK trapped in an EU customs union. Less than three weeks before Britain leaves the European Union, the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday Britain could have the unilateral right to leave their customs union after Brexit.
