The Sky News carries a story on Tuesday, citing that the UK PM Theresa May is considering enlisting the help of former President of the European Council Herman van Rompuy in order to break the impasse on the Irish border backstop.
Herman Van Rompuy is described as an "influencer" who may be able to help broker a compromise.
“It is understood that Herman Van Rompuy had a private dinner with Theresa May's deputy, Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington in Brussels on Monday night.
Dinner is understood to have taken place at the prime minister's request in order to discuss changes to the key sticking block in the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement - the Irish backstop.”
