solving the Irish border problem
Senior EU sources fear a looming crisis in the Brexit negotiations in the coming weeks because of British Prime Minister Theresa May's growing incapacity to act due to mounting pressure from both Brexit hardliners and pro-European Tories over the issue of the customs union.

One senior official has told RTÉ News that hardline elements in the Conservative Party would be prepared to abandon the UK's commitment to the Irish backstop, the guarantee of no hard border agreed in the Joint Report last December.

Mrs May's preferred option for solving the Irish border problem, through a so-called customs partnership, has been rejected by senior cabinet Brexiteers.
