Brexit is undermining Northern Ireland's hard-won peace by creating tensions between Catholic and Protestant communities, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Saturday, even as hopes rose for a solution to the Irish border problem that has deadlocked negotiations.

David Davis pointed out that Britain's attorney general Geoffrey Cox reportedly said that "any Northern Ireland-only arrangements for customs after Brexit could mean the Province was "torn out of the UK" and leave it "controlled by the EU".

She has insisted that any backstop agreement would have to include a mechanism to bring an end to the backstop.

The Irish Premier Leo Varadkar also added to tensions by saying he would never agree to give the United Kingdom "unilateral" power to decide when to pull out of the backstop.

Senior sources told the paper that May has secured concessions from Brussels, with the EU agreeing to write an "all-U.K." customs union into the divorce deal.

A Downing Street spokeswoman added: "The Prime Minister is clear we are leaving the customs union".

And it will include an "exit clause" to avoid suspicion that Britain will forever be tied to European Union rules, allowing the Government to forge a future free trade deal like that enjoyed by Canada.

The UK would effectively become a non-voting member of the European Union, forced to accept laws made in Brussels with no power to shape or amend them, he said.

Such an arrangement would be a "national humiliation", reducing Britain to the status of " a colony", Mr Johnson argued.

Coming away from Arsenal and being disappointed with a draw is a positive, and also the amount of chances we created". They have one from us [the 0-0 draw at Anfield], if they get 89 more I have no influence on that.

Writing in the Sun, Mr Johnson said Brussels would always use the prospect of a hard border in Ireland to keep the United Kingdom "forever" in its orbit.

"We are being asked to choose between the break-up of the Union - at least for economic purposes - or the subjugation of the whole country", said the Uxbridge MP.

The backstop is an arrangement that applies if the Irish border can not be kept frictionless during a wider deal.

"Anything that weakens or softens the Irish Government's position as to the baseline protections that we need is something to be avoided", she said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has reportedly secured a series of "secret" concessions from the European Union that could allow the whole of the United Kingdom to effectively remain within a customs union with the bloc after Brexit. Under this plan we surrender control to Brussels.

"The prime minister has been clear that we are making good progress on the future relationship and 95% of the withdrawal agreement is now settled and negotiations are ongoing", the spokesman also said, as quoted by the Sky News.

Mr Varadkar said he was hoping to see a Brexit deal signed by the end of the year.

May is under intense pressure from several members of her cabinet to secure a mechanism by which any backstop agreements can be time limited and able to be terminated by the UK.
