The Prime Minister is said to be preparing to sell the plan to Brexiteers in the Cabinet by insisting the customs arrangement will not be permanent, and that the alternative is a potentially disastrous "no-deal" exit from the bloc in March.

Source close to European Union negotiator Michel Barnier revealed that a "major concession" had been made on the Irish border during a meeting in London last week that will see regulatory checks on goods carried out at factories and shops rather than being conducted at the border.

This would avoid the EU's "backstop" solution that would have treated Northern Ireland differently from the rest of Britain.

"In March the United Kingdom agreed this backstop will apply "unless and until" a close future relationship eliminates any need for border infrastructure or related checks and controls".

The UK government will reportedly discuss May's plan on Tuesday, as London aspires to promptly reach sufficient progress in Brexit talks, thus opening door for a European Union summit for finalizing the details to be held later in the month.

At the same time, it reported that the prime minister was on course to agree a future economic partnership that would leave open the possibility of Canada-style free trade deal sought by Brexiteers. That in turn could sway the euroskeptic wing of her Conservative Party.

Downing Street has called the reports speculation, but also claim that the majority of the UK's Brexit plan had already been agreed.

Michael Cohen Says Trump Repeatedly Made Racist Remarks
Cohen also recalls Trump saying, during a drive through a "rougher" neighborhood, "Only the blacks could live like this". This won't be the first time that Trump has been accused of insulting black people and African countries.

"We are making good progress on the future relationship, and 95% of the Withdrawal Agreement has been settled".

According to the Telegraph, May has included Attorney General Geoffrey Cox, the government's chief legal adviser, in her special Brexit Cabinet after ministers said they wouldn't sign off on a deal without his advice.

Parliament would then vote on the deal in December.

But some of Britain's biggest corporate names have had enough of the government's handling of the negotiations.

Waterstones chief executive James Daunt, ex-Sainsbury (Amsterdam: SJ6.AS - news) 's chief executive Justin King, Lastminute.com founder Baroness Lane-Fox and Innocent Drinks co-founder Richard Reed are among over 70 signatories of a letter calling for a second Brexit referendum.

"Both these options will further depress investment". But U.K. officials believe intensive negotiations will deliver the decisive step needed for an agreement within the next few weeks, according to two people familiar with the matter.
