* BREXIT negotiations have hit another hurdle in the road after rumours have been circulated suggesting Brexit Secretary David Davis could resign over Theresa May’s backstop plans



The government’s plan for a Brexit “backstop” will be published today after Theresa May and David Davis held last-minute crunch talks in an bid resolve their differences.

The proposal, which spells out what will happen if no other arrangement is made for the Northern Ireland border, was the subject of a row between the prime minister and her Brexit secretary. Mr Davis was reported to be considering resigning over the issue.

However, the crisis appears to have been averted after the pair held talks in Ms May’s Commons office and later had a second meeting in Downing Street. The prime minister also held separate, shorter meetings with Brexiteer cabinet ministers Boris Johnson and Liam Fox.


David Davis quitting as Brexit secretary ‘would be deeply dangerous’

In a clear suggestion the deadlock had been broken, government sources confirmed the document would be published on Thursday and said Mr Davis would not be resigning.

Ms May’s spokesperson said the prime minister had held “constructive discussions” with the Brexit secretary on Thursday morning.

The one-to-one talks took place in advance of a meeting of the cabinet’s Brexit sub-committee, which has yet to sign off the proposal.

A source close to Mr Davis told The Independent: “Obviously there’s been a back and forth on this paper, as there always is whenever the government publishes anything.

“The backstop paper has been amended and now expresses, in much more detail, the time limited nature of our proposal – something the PM and DD have always been committed to.”

  1. The EU referendum, if nothing else, told us one clear thing. If we had voted to remain, of course we would have stayed in the EU. We voted to leave, but we shall still stay in the EU, at least almost
    Certainly in all but name. So why have a referendum if one side or the other, in this case, the
    Remainers, who lost, will not accept the result but looks as though they will get everything or
    Almost everything, their way? The Prime Minister has lost all credibility, particularly on this
    Very fundamental issue, and should resign. She always was and is a remainer, and is not the
    Right person to implement the referendum result.

  2. It refers to a period of time after 29 March, 2019, to 31 December, 2020, to get everything in place and allow businesses and others to prepare for the moment when the new post-Brexit rules between the UK and the EU begin. It also allows more time for the details of the new relationship to be fully hammered out. Free movement will continue during the transition period, as the EU wanted. The UK will be able to strike its own trade deals – although they won’t be able to come into force until 1 January 2021

  3. On money, the UK has agreed to pay into the EU budget as now until the current round ends in 2020. It may incur in future new liabilities agreed before then. The British government estimates the settlement will cost €40-45 billion.

  4. Leading Brexiteers such as Liam Fox and Boris Johnson argue that the UK surrenders its trade policy to Brussels if it remains in a customs union with the EU.
