Northern Irish DUP Angry at Staying in EU Customs Union, Scots Angry They Aren't

Northern Ireland
Despite apparent success at reaching an agreement with Brussels, UK Prime Minister Theresa May risks losing the Democratic Unionist Party as a government partner, as Scotland leads calls to remain in Customs Union/Single Market.

The head of the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, which is keeping British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives in power via parliamentary support agreement, publicly rebuked the PM December 4 over the former's efforts at settling the issue of the Northern Irish border with the Republic of Ireland.

Arlene Foster bluntly rejected any suggestion the country's links with Britain could be loosened in order to prevent a hard border.

"Northern Ireland must leave the European Union on the same terms as the rest of the United Kingdom. We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the UK. The territorial and constitutional integrity of the UK must not be compromised in any way," she said in a televised statement.
