DUP accuses May of breaking Brexit pledge over ‘Irish Sea border’
PM says in letter she would not let breakup of UK customs territory come into force
Theresa May’s Brexit deal is unlikely to pass the House of Commons, the DUP’s Brexit spokesman, Sammy Wilson, said after his party reacted angrily to a letter from the prime minister that detailed her plans.
Wilson said suggestions in the letter, which had been leaked to the Times, that Northern Ireland could face a different regulatory regime to the rest of the UK under the backstop clause, were unacceptable. He added that Conservative backbenchers had concerns about other aspects of the deal.
