May warns Merkel and Macron that Brexit deal is dead unless they compromise

The summit on Friday didn’t go well

Theresa May warned leaders including Macron and Merkel that the Brexit deal they struck is deal unless they made concessions, according to a person familiar cited by Bloomberg.

A 15-minute meeting also included Dutch premier Rutte and Donald Tusk. May told them that the Irish border backstop needed to be fixed and include a firm end date. She said the DUP and members of her party will never support the current deal.

The current structure of the deal gives the EU a de facto veto over leaving. May asked for a 12-month deadline on ending the backstop but it was shot down.

The source said May could put the deal to parliament in a vote and allow it to be shot down.
