Brexit: Michael Gove says UK voters can change final deal

On Monday, the DUP - whose support Prime Minister Theresa May needs to win key votes at Westminster - objected to draft plans drawn up by the United Kingdom and the EU.

The government says it is "optimistic" about an Irish border agreement as pressure mounts to find a Brexit deal.

Leo Varadkar said he was happy with a draft agreement including alignment of regulatory regimes on the island of Ireland in the agriculture and energy sectors.

As well as trying to appease the DUP, Dublin and Brussels, Theresa May also needs Conservative MPs to back whatever solution she puts forward.
