Brussels will use the Irish border issue to tie UK into a permanent post-Brexit customs union

The Prime Minister secured Brexit victories on governance and the Irish backstop during her negotiations with Brussels, according to one senior EU diplomat familiar with the talks.

A leaked letter from the prime minister to the party reveals that the government is preparing to allow the European Union to impose specific regulatory checks on goods entering Northern Ireland as part of the controversial backstop.

The move towards a UK-wide backstop solution has been accepted by Brussels in order to help Mrs May sell the deal to the Cabinet at home, the source added.

No 10 hopes a no-deal Brexit would be such a nightmare for both the UK and the continued existence of the Tory Party that dissidents will back the PMs deal. But thats far from certain.

Brussels also left the negotiating table with far less European Court of Justice coverage across the withdrawal agreement than it had wished for.
