And on Monday he showed why No-deal Brexit odds: Latest predictions on leaving EU without deal Sign up: Brexit Whatsapp updates and the Brexit Bulletin  ​Reported plans by the British Government to create customs posts along both sides of the Irish border to replace the backstop, have been dismissed by Simon Coveney. Irish State broadcaster RTE reported the suggestion sent to the European Union by the UK would lead to the posts being built between five and 10 miles back from the current border. The idea for the customs posts are contained in the so-called 'non-papers' submitted by UK officials during recent technical discussions. The deputy Irish premier poured cold water on the plans, saying Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland "deserves better." He tweeted: "Non-Paper Non-Starter. Time the EU had a serious proposal from the UK Govt if a £Brexit deal is to be achievable in October. NI and IRE deserves better!" Brexit | The best comment and analysis Mr Johnson will finally unveil his detailed plan for Brexit to EU leaders within the next 24 hours, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. Downing Street will set out the Prime Minister’s preferred alternative to the Irish backstop in a series of calls to EU capitals ahead of a formal text being delivered to Brussels after his speech to the Conservative Party conference on Wednesday. The UK plan, which could be delivered as early as Tuesday, is expected to be based on the creation of an all-Ireland “economic zone” which would allow agricultural and food products to move between Ulster and the republic without checks at the border. A proposal to align regulations on industrial goods is expected to be included. Q&A; | The Brexit backstop The proposal will also suggest ways for Northern Ireland’s political parties to have a say in the application of any EU rules and regulations in order to build democratic legitimacy for the replacement to the backstop. But on the critical question of customs – which the EU side says is a potential deal-breaker – the Johnson plan is still expected to rely on technology and so-called “alternative arrangements”, such as trusted-trader schemes and exemptions for small businesses.   7:43AM Good morning from Manchester Boris Johnson’s plans for Brexit are set to be revealed in the next few days.

Elon Musk to unveil Tesla's Model Y next week

Elon Musk to unveil Tesla's Model Y next weekTesla will unveil its Model Y SUV next week, chief executive Elon Musk has said, launching a product which is expected to give it a foothold in a "far larger and faster growing global segment". In a series of posts on Twitter last night, Mr Musk said the new compact SUV would be 10pc larger than its Model 3 electric vehicles, so would cost "around 10pc more and have slightly less range for the same battery". The billionaire, who had just hours earlier launched  his first spaceship built to fly astronauts to the International Space Station, said detailed specifications and pricing would be provided at the launch event, on March 14. The Model Y, which is expected to go into volume production next year, will be produced using many of the same components as the Model 3 vehicle. For example, it is expected to be based on the Model 3's steel and aluminium structure, and have "normal" doors, not the Falcon Wing doors that are seen on Tesla's other SUV, the Model X.  Analysts have been largely optimistic over the launch of the Model Y, and Morgan Stanley's Adam Jonas last week said an "all-new midsized crossover/SUV is Tesla's chance to take the learnings from the Model S, X, and 3 in design and manufacturing to offer a product in a far larger and faster growing global segment". Tesla Model 3 production However, he cautioned that the "key downside to providing too much information about the Model Y and its enhanced capabilities in software and hardware is that it could steal the thunder of the still-ramping Model 3 just as it's getting introduced into key international markets". Tesla recently started Model 3 deliveries to parts of Asia and Europe, with some customers having waited three years for the vehicles. The company has said it will start deliveries to the UK later this year, with the slower roll-out due to the fact vehicles in the UK need to be right-hand drive.  Tesla was last year forced to push back targets for Model 3 deliveries a number of times, having struggled with production bottlenecks and organisation issues, although signalled it was over the worst of those issues.  Mr Musk last week said 2018 had been the "most challenging in Tesla’s history".
