News from the week has a report from ITV released today that the prime minister’s frantic last attempt to persuade Northern Ireland’s DUP to back her third meaningful vote on Tuesday involves a promise that if the controversial backstop is ever triggered, Great Britain would adopt any new food and business rules that could be forced by the EU on Northern Ireland.

  • “Theresa May will not risk trying to win support from MPs for her Brexit plan until the DUP publicly commit to back the deal.”
  • “This is a high risk offer by Theresa May to NI’s unionist party – which has huge clout with her because without its votes in parliament her government would collapse.”
