Brexit deal almost done – report

Preparations for a final Brexit deal “far more advanced” than previously disclosed

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has secured concessions from the EU to keep the whole of Britain in a customs union, the Sunday Times reports, citing unnamed sources.

The likely solves the problem of a hard Irish border and paves the way for a Brexit deal.

At the same time, May is on course to secure a political deal on a “future economic partnership” with the EU. Such a move would keep open the prospect of a Canada-style free trade deal between the UK and EU.

This is the clearest indication yet that a deal is imminent.

On Ireland, the EU will write an all-UK clause into the withdrawal agreement that means a Northern Irish backstop will not be needed.
