Best for Britain Campaign to Strive for Referendum on Brexit Final Deal

The prime minister wants Britain to leave the EU customs union post-Brexit.

Pressed for a second time to give a cast-iron guarantee, she said: "I have always been clear that the backstop was time-limited".

He questioned whether a temporary backstop could "secure the absence of a hard border in all circumstances" and said it might mean businesses and public authorities having to cope with several changes. Davis still claimed a victory, but other Brexit hardliners in the Conservative party were not satisfied.

The idea of the backstop is controversial with eurosceptics, who fear it will keep Britain tied to the EU's rules for years after it leaves the bloc on March 29, 2019.

"I am very concerned that by the time we have negotiated this with the European Union we will have a never-ending vassal state status", said Conservative Brexiteer Nigel Mills. The UK wants a further discussion with the EU on how a specific mechanism for Northern Ireland suggested in the European Commission's draft protocol could apply to the UK as a whole.

"If we move to WTO (World Trade Organization) rules, that would definitely require customs declarations so it would be similar in terms of costs", Thompson said when asked about the cost of a no-deal Brexit.

The EU proposed keeping Northern Ireland in the customs union but this was rejected by the government as well as Northern Irish party the DUP, which is holding together Mrs May's minority government.

According to BuzzFeed News, the leading Brexiteer joked to the Thatcherite campaign group that Donald Trump would "get somewhere" if he was leading the Brexit negotiations.

"The point is, do we reach quick decisions or do we reach the right decisions?"

A spokesman for the Department for Exiting the European Union said: "Our amendment removes Parliament's ability to direct the government in relation to negotiations, which would set a huge constitutional precedent in terms of which branch of the state holds the prerogative to act in the global sphere".

Mr Barnier said he continues to have "great respect" for the prime minister.

Keir Starmer has hit back at claims Labour will squander the chance to defeat the government over an amendment to keep the United Kingdom in a Norway-style deal after Brexit, saying his party was too divided to back it.

Ireland's ideal scenario would be for Britain to stay in the EU's customs union and single market, ensuring regulation is not a barrier to intra-EU trade.

The Prime Minister was "going to go into a phase where we are much more combative with Brussels", the Cabinet minister said.

Mrs May faces an European Union summit on 28 June, at which both sides were hoping to demonstrate progress in the Brexit negotiations.
