London - British Prime Minister Theresa May's allies threatened yesterday to pull their support for her government if she gives away too much in Brexit negotiations, just days ahead of a crucial EU summit. Wilson warned that any solution that resulted in checks on goods transiting between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain, as outlined by EU negotiator Barnier in a speech on Wednesday, would be "unacceptable". Barnier said that "administrative procedures" would be required on goods travelling to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK if the Ireland-Northern Ireland border is to remain free-flowing. European Union proposals would keep Northern Ireland in its customs union and force the province to abide by European single market rules. The prime minister will brief some of her key ministers later yesterday about the current state of the Brexit talks.
