British Prime Minister Will Travel to Brussels With 'Fresh Mandate'

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Sunday she would seek a "pragmatic solution" to a parliamentary impasse over the terms on which Britain leaves the European Union when she tries to reopen talks with Brussels.
The British Prime Minister says she will head to Brussels with fresh ideas to deliver Brexit.
DUP leader Arlene Foster said that a deal can be agreed if the "toxicity" of the backstop is dealt with.
Mr Coveney said the backstop was required to "ensure the protection of the Good Friday Agreement" which ended 30 years of armed struggle in Northern Ireland.
Warnings of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit intensified last week as several multinational firms, including Airbus and Ford, said jobs could suffer with an unfavourable negotiating outcome.
The backstop would see the United Kingdom remain in a customs union with the EU, and Northern Ireland remain in large parts of the single market for goods, in order to prevent the need for checks or infrastructure on the border.
"It's 100 per cent untrue", a Downing Street spokeswoman said about the article, which reported that May's advisors were considering a June 6 election under a scenario in which Brexit was delayed past March 29 but May subsequently won parliament's backing for a withdrawal deal in April.
Writing in the Sunday Times, Mr Coveney added: "The EU will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement and there will be no withdrawal agreement without the backstop".
Queen Elizabeth II was even drawn into the fray, with the Sunday Times reporting that the civil service had drawn up plans to whisk away the royal family to a secret location if riots should break out due to no deal, with Buckingham Palace declining to comment on the report.
MPs voted last week to send May back to Brussels to renegotiate the clause, suggesting her deal would then be able to pass after it was roundly rejected in parliament last month. "That is what Parliament instructed me to do".
May called an election at short notice in 2017 at which she lost her party's majority, leaving her reliant on a small Northern Irish party to govern.
"This represents a significant step towards delivering Brexit and fulfilling the instruction given to us by the British public".
The opposition Labour Party has said May needs to seek a customs union with the EU to win the support of its lawmakers, something opposed by many in her Conservative Party.
He added: "One thing is certain: the technology to maintain the open border we have today does not exist". "The only thing that is missing is a bit of goodwill on the European Union side".
But the Irish deputy prime minister has said "there are no credible alternative arrangements" to the proposal. The Irish minister for foreign affairs and trade rejected the notion the insurance policy was an inconvenience, instead saying it offered "a necessary guarantee, based on legal certainty, not just wishful thinking" that the region would not return to its troubled pst.
