Government denies no deal Brexit plans predict "armageddon"

The plan, aimed at allowing the British province to trade freely with both countries, is one of several being discussed in a bid to break a deadlock in and may not be proposed to the European Union, a government official said on Friday.

According to the Sun, Davis' proposed special economic zone along the 499km border would in effect support local traders, such as farmers, who make up approximately 90% of all cross-border traffic.

"The public must be given the final say on the deal, with the opportunity to exit from Brexit".

Asked about the plan, a DExEU spokesman said: "We have set out two viable future customs arrangements with the European Union and work is ongoing to refine these".

May's efforts to see the United Kingdom successfully leave the EU customs union has so far fallen under two categories; the "max fac" (maximum facilitation), which involves leaving the customs union, but using technology to avoid a hard border, and a customs partnership, which would see co-operation with the EU and the collecting of tariffs.

Trump lawyer Giuliani says president probably can pardon himself
The president's lawyers fear an interview could lead to Trump inadvertently, and they say innocently, committing perjury. Does President Trump have the power to pardon himself? There is a heightened standard for interviewing a president.

"This proposed plan, which is still being devised, focuses exclusively on trade and does not take into account the huge impact Brexit will have on the rights of people in the north". Do checks have to be carried out there?

The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up Prime Minister Theresa May's minority government at Westminster, will nearly certainly be opposed to the new proposals, as they have said they will not accept Northern Ireland leaving the bloc on different terms to the rest of the United Kingdom.

"But it doesn't matter what we call it as long as it works, and we think it will".

The land border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland has been a contentious issue in the wake of the UK's historic decision in June 2016.

A Downing Street spokesman said: "The Prime Minister has been absolutely clear that we can not and will not accept a customs border down the Irish Sea, and that we will preserve the integrity of the UK's common market".
