UK's May tells party to drop dream of a 'perfect' Brexit

Her speech also saw her claim that Labour are unfit for office, calling the party's response to antisemitism allegations a "national tragedy", and repeatedly condemning Jeremy Corbyn for questioning the United Kingdom intelligence services over the Salisbury poising attack.

Mrs May's critics say such a proposal would make Britain a rule-taker with no say in forming future regulations. She argued that her plan would preserve the frictionless trade that many businesses depend on, while ensuring "no change whatsoever" to Northern Ireland's border with Ireland.

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid will lay out some of the contours of the new plans as part of his speech to the ongoing Conservative Party annual conference in Birmingham later on Tuesday.

"The petition of concern is no longer available to us [DUP] and I am sure this will come to the floor in the Assembly and we need to allow the Assembly the space to debate this", she added. Foster to "confront" her party's stance on equal marriage.

She reiterated that the voters have spoken and there would be no second referendum.

And he said the EU's backstop option for preventing a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic if free trade in goods ends was "abominable".

Britain's governing party is deeply divided over the country's impending departure from the European Union, with pro- and anti-EU camps both criticising the prime minister's negotiations with the bloc.
