Brexit: DUP says it cannot support Johnson’s compromise
Thursday, 17 October 2019
The Northern Irish Unionist Party DUP, which is part of the parliamentary coalition of the British Conservative government, opposes Boris Johnson’s proposed compromise for Brexit, it announced in communication on Thursday before the opening of the EU summit.
“As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues,” a DUP spokesman warned, referring to two points considered by the EU as problematic.
There is “lack of clarity on VAT” the DUP added, stating that it “will continue to work with the government towards a reasonable agreement.”
