Conservatives may have to depose prime minister to 'heal wounds' - DUP MP

It comes as Brexit negotiations enter what is being referred to as a "tunnel phase", with no publication of the British or European Union position on the backstop to be published until it is agreed.

While London wants to regulate that by a future trade deal with the European Union, the bloc insists on an emergency fix in case negotiating new relations takes longer, or fails.

"I'm sure they too will be persuaded the alternatives - of no deal or potentially a Corbyn government - would not be of benefit to them or Northern Ireland", he said.

The Prime Minister is proposing the United Kingdom remains in a customs union with the EU after Brexit, leaving the country unable to sign new trade deals, until a new arrangement is finalised.

He added that the DUP could vote down the Budget but still support the government in a confidence vote, as long as it changed its approach to Brexit.

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said on Wednesday evening he is "cautiously optimistic" that progress will be made next week on the negotiations for Britain to leave the EU. Many of her cabinet colleagues have assured me of their Unionism.

Democratic Unionist Party Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson told Ireland's RTE radio on Thursday the party's 10 members of parliament would vote against the United Kingdom budget and would consider voting no-confidence in May if the British government crosses the DUP's red lines in Brexit talks.

But he said that checks on animals and animal food products passing between Northern Ireland and Great Britain would have to increase tenfold.

But this could see checks on goods travelling from mainland Britain to Northern Ireland - what Foster described as "an effective one-way turnstile".

Brexiteers are particularly anxious that Britain could be tied to European Union mechanisms indefinitely, hindering the country's ability to strike independent trade deals after it has left the bloc.

The former PM also took a shot at the Tories' coalition partners, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) of the Northern Ireland, who earlier in the month identified their "red line" when it comes to the Brexit deal.

No 10 made clear if the DUP voted down the Budget, Mrs May would not quit.

While talks with Brussels have intensified since May emerged from her infighting Conservative party conference last week, there has been no breakthrough.

On Wednesday DUP Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson warned the Prime Minister that his party would pull support and collapse her government if Northern Ireland was left "languishing in the stifling embrace of the EU" after Brexit.

Barnier said customs forms could be completed in advance online and the "only visible systematic checks" would involve scanning bar codes on lorries or containers on ferries or in ports.
