EU is willing to ‘improve’ offer on Irish border to help secure Brexit deal

Michel Barnier has vowed to ‘improve’ the EU’s Irish border plan to secure a Brexit deal – but is still insisting that checks must apply between mainland Britain and Northern Ireland.

The bloc’s chief negotiator said he hoped talks were on the ‘home straight’ and he was working on a compromise to bring agreement into ‘grasp’.

But he made clear that the proposal will put the border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK – something Theresa May is adamant she will not accept as it would risk splitting the union.

The DUP, which is propping the Tories up in power, also flatly dismissed Mr Barnier’s new version of the backstop.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
