May reacted angrily to the proposal that Northern Ireland - part of Britain - stay in a customs union with the EU if there is no better solution, warning she would not accept anything that risked the constitutional integrity of her country.

The govt's coalition ally in Northern Ireland, the DUP, has threatened to withdraw support over the issue saying details of the draft treaty "fundamentally breached" an agreement reached in Brussels late previous year.

"It's not OK for people - whether it's pro-Brexit politicians in Britain or people from parties in Northern Ireland - to just say no now".

According to the text, the above protocol can be ignored if a subsequent agreement is found to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Karen Bradley said the British government remains committed to avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland, but there would not be a separate trade agreement.

Brexit talks once again look to be stuck around the intractable issue of the Irish border-an obstacle that was papered over in December with a temporary fix but now has the potential to derail the whole process.

However British Greens MEP Molly Scott Cato said May's assertion that no United Kingdom prime minister could ever agree to the EU's proposal "isn't good enough".

The text refers to a transition period that would help ease Britain out from March 30 next year until December 31, 2020.

"As Tony Blair lectures today's politicians on what we should be doing on Brexit one wonders if he has the self-awareness to realise one of the key reasons we are leaving the European Union is because of his inability to control immigration when he was PM for a decade", he tweeted.

The most sensitive pillar is on Ireland, and all eyes will look to see how the Brussels negotiators draft out a key passage guaranteeing undisturbed ties between Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland after the divorce.

RBS seems concerned with one of the most contentious issues in the ongoing Brexit negotiations -the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

It would form the basis of the final Brexit withdrawal treaty, which must be adopted before Britain leaves at midnight on March 29, 2019.

It foresees keeping Northern Ireland within the European Union structures and rules.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson suggested this week that the row over Northern Ireland's status was a political ploy to force the government into changing course.

"Depending on what day of the week it is, the Irish Government and European Union spokespeople, claim that they want to defend the Belfast Agreement, yet on another day they quite happily seek to undermine one of its core principles upon which relative peace was brought to Northern Ireland - the principle of consent".
