Northern Ireland's DUP leader says UK and EU close to a deal

Meanwhile the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up the Conservative British government, repeated its rejection of any deal that would introduce a customs and regulatory check between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

"We don't bluff", Carney said in a television interview.

"Finance is the lifeblood of the UK economy and any barriers towards facilitating transactions with the continent would likely deal a deathblow to UK GDP", said Boris Schlossberg of BK Asset Management.

'And therefore as a result I wouldn't expect employers to do anything different than they do today'.

The latest proposal on the table involves a "two-speed backstop" whereby the whole United Kingdom will sign-up to a customs arrangement with the EU.

Warrenpoint is one of the five main sites of seabound exports and imports between Northern Ireland and Britain which, at low tide, is just a few hundred metres from the republic.

Mr Dodds said: "New borders down the Irish Sea would be catastrophic for our economy".

The backstop would come into force at the end of the transition period should a comprehensive trade deal that can ensure there is no need for a hard border on the island of Ireland not be agreed in time.

Back then, Starbucks told the New York Times that it would leave it up to customers to interpret what was on the cup. What's going on: Starbucks unveiled its latest lineup of holiday cups Thursday.

"The economic outlook will depend significantly on the nature of European Union withdrawal, in particular, the form of new trading arrangements, the smoothness of the transition to them and the responses of households, businesses and financial markets", the BoE said, echoing its previous remarks.

Speaking at a press briefing after the bank kept its main interest rate on hold at 0.75 percent, Carney said "there are scenarios where policy would have to be tightened" in the event the country leaves the European Union without a deal and without a transition to new trading arrangements.

"There is a genuine risk that Northern Ireland will end up as part of an effective European Union protectorate, without the say-so of the Northern Ireland assembly", Lord Trimble warns. It would be a huge shame if they made a decision to do it, and personally, I think it would be quite wrong for them to do that, but if that's what they want to do.

"Theresa May needs to make this clear".

However, Simon Coveney, Ireland's deputy premier, warned that there had to be further movement from the United Kingdom in the negotiations for there to be a withdrawal agreement in November.

The biggest obstacle to a Brexit deal has been Britain's wish to keep the border of its province of Northern Ireland with Ireland open, preserving frictionless trade and a 1998 peace deal that ended sectarian violence while leaving the EU's single market and customs union to forge its own trade deals.

Britain on Wednesday said there was no set date for Brexit talks to finish, backtracking from a letter by Brexit Minister, Dominic Raab, that suggested a deal on the terms of its departure could be finalised by November 21.

Mr Lidington said he believed they were "very close to resolving" the outstanding issues, and he reiterated the UK Government's commitment "to getting over those final difficulties" in the Brexit negotiations as soon as possible.
