The Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has rejected the EU's concession on Brexit. The bloc has reportedly offered to allow the assembly in Stormont to unilaterally revoke the Irish backstop. However, according to a report in The Times, it would require both communities in the conflicted province to agree.
Sammy Wilson, the DUP's Brexit spokesman, said:
It will go nowhere. The Govt in Westminster will not accept it, we will not accept it, I don't think anyone who looks at it with any kind of objectivity at all will say it's an improved offer
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party relies on the DUP and the PM's original proposal received the small party's backing. The rejection may undermine the chances of the EU's idea to serve as the basis for a deal.
