Mr Donaldson explained the withdrawal agreement which included the backstop was turned down three times by Theresa May's Government noting that it was the Government's biggest defeat in history over the previous deal.

In a statement, the party leader said Boris Johnson rejected the idea of a Northern Ireland-only backstop.

Judgment is due at Belfast High Court this morning in a legal challenge that argued the UK Government's Brexit strategy will damage the Northern Ireland peace process.

"We talked to the police and customs".

"I am an enthusiast for that idea, I'm going to put it out there, I think it's a good idea but again that is the kind of project that should be pursued by a dynamic Northern Ireland government championed by local people with local consent and interest, backed by local business and mobilised by the politicians in Northern Ireland", he said.

McDonald added, "Despite Mr Johnson's claims to the contrary, the path he is leading would lead us to a hard border".

Nearly half of voters said they feel less closer to the rest of the United Kingdom than they did five years ago.

An opposition-backed measure created to rule out a no-deal Brexit on Oct 31 became law after receiving the formal assent of Queen Elizabeth II, hours before legislators were set to reject Johnson's demand for a snap election to break the political deadlock engulfing the government.

Documents obtained by Channel 4 News show that both the Treasury and Department for Transport have now been asked to look into the costs and risks of such a bridge.

Johnson reportedly wants to know where the money would come from along with the "risks around the project".

Number 10 has insisted it has not commissioned any work on the project, and that the work was done by the civil service during the Tory leadership election as possible schemes for a new prime minister to pursue.

"This PM has made no secret of his support for infrastructure projects that increase connectivity for people and particularly those that strengthen the Union".
