Britain will leave the EU as “one United Kingdom”

Britain will leave the EU as “one United Kingdom” and will not agree to the EU’s suggestion to keep Northern Ireland in a customs union after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament on Monday (October 22).
With just over five months until Britain is scheduled to exit the EU, talks have stalled over a disagreement on the so-called Northern Irish “backstop”, an insurance policy to ensure there will be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland if a future trading relationship is not agreed in time.
May dismissed the EU’s proposed backstop as unacceptable and she set out two options for Britain to choose from: an extension to the transition period, or a temporary UK-EU customs territory which was first outlined earlier this year.
May also said that the government does not support a second referendum, after of hundreds of thousands marched through London on Saturday (October 20) demanding that the British government hold a public vote on the terms of Brexit.
