Brexit Deal Must Include Backstop to Avoid Hard Irish Border: Theresa May
The Brexit deal must include a backstop to avoid a hard Irish border, the U.K. prime minister Theresa May said on 5 February, indicating that her talks with the EU later this week will focus again on getting a legally binding limit for such an insurance policy, politico reports.
Speaking in Belfast, May denied she had committed a "U-turn" on the backstop last week when she gave government backing to an amendment that explicitly required the backstop be "replaced by alternative arrangements" to achieve the same ends.
Theresa May told reporters, following a speech in which she reaffirmed her commitment to avoiding a hard border, that the U.K. still wants an "insurance policy" in case future trade talks with the EU could not deliver a seamless border.

- Short Brexit Extension is Possible but Conditional: Donald Tusk Tusk mentioned that he "did not foresee" the need for an additional extraordinary meeting to discuss Brexit after the summit.
- Brexit: MPs Vote by a Majority of 211 to Seek Delay to EU Departure Mrs May says Brexit could be delayed by three months, to 30 June, if MPs back her deal in a vote next week.
- No-Deal Brexit Rejected in UK Parliament But this vote solves absolutely nothing when it comes to finding a solution to Brexit.
