European Union officials warned to prepare for no-deal Brexit

Losing the party's support in the Commons would mean possible defeat on the budget and a no-confidence vote for Theresa May Losing the party's support in the Commons would mean possible defeat on the budget and a no-confidence vote for Theresa May

Her intervention came as Mrs May met key members of her cabinet in Downing Street to brief them on the progress in the Brexit negotiations.

The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) said it may take "many years" for free trade agreements to generate significant benefits for the United Kingdom after it leaves the European Union.

The Northern Irish party that British Prime Minister Theresa May's government relies on for support says it will consider backing a vote of no-confidence if May agrees to European Union checks on goods entering the region post-Brexit.

Writing in the Telegraph on Thursday, DUP MP Sammy Wilson said May's backstop proposal was part of a "road to parliamentary defeat for any deal which the Prime Minister brings forward".

Such an arrangement would all but end May's chances of securing free trade deals with other countries.

"They are going to talk a lot over the weekend and consider what they will live with and what they will walk over", the FT quoted one official close to Eurosceptic Cabinet ministers as saying of Leadsom and McVey.

Earlier, No 10 played down suggestions that the government was on the brink of unveiling a Brexit deal. "That was the case on Monday and it remains the case today", the prime minister's official spokesman said.

A day earlier, the DUP had said it was prepared to vote down the budget if the prime minister in their eyes conceded too much ground to Brussels in the European Union talks, risking an abrupt end to the confidence and supply agreement that has kept May in Downing Street since the 2017 election in which the Tories lost their overall majority.

In addition, Northern Ireland would remain under large parts of single market regulations, requiring enhanced checks on products arriving from Britain, particularly agricultural goods.

Back to the bluffing though, speaking to another Irish politician his morning, who said a deal is close but that the negotiations are "extremely difficult", they wondered if Arlene Foster would ever follow through her threats to block a Brexit deal and bring down the United Kingdom government.

Michelle O'Neill, Sinn Fein's vice-president, responded by saying that "the DUP does not speak for the majority of the people of the north on Brexit". She'd be ripping up her guarantee to support the PM in the commons. It also warned about the risk of grounding of British aircraft not being able to fly, should no agreement be made.
