Will the Irish border issue trip up Brexit?

Minister Leo Varadkar as he speaks with the press as he arrives for an EU summit in Goteborg Sweden. Ireland's governing party and main opposition are on Tuesday Nov. 28 2017 holding

"We want the negotiations to move on to phase two so we can talk about our future trade relationship".

A mis-step by May could bring down the British government or spook British businesses fearful of a cliff-edge Brexit without a transition deal.

"We believe it's possible to do that", he told the Today programme.

In Britain, an influential group of MPs says it is not possible to see how the Irish border issue can be resolved.

Mentioning British Prime Minister Theresa May's request that a final offer is put on the table by December 4, Tusk added that after that: "We can assess whether sufficient progress can be made at the upcoming European Council".

He said: "The one thing that the European Union doesn't want is a divergence in regulatory standards between the north and south of Ireland, if that was to happen then you would need a hard border".

Lukaku struggling with Ibrahimovic pressure at Man United, says Ferdinand
But a seven-game goal drought followed, and he's only scored once since the November worldwide break. Lukaku has 12 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions this season for Manchester United .

The research conducted by the committee echoes concerns raised by the Irish government in relation to the border.

Ireland has called on Britain to provide details of how it will ensure there is no "regulatory divergence" after Brexit in March 2019 that would require physical border infrastructure.

Officials from the Democratic Unionist Party are considering pulling their support of the ruling Conservative Party, depending on how Brexit affects the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

As Brexit negotiations finally whir into life in the wake of the United Kingdom government's divorce bill agreement, Prime Minister Theresa May is now struggling to reconcile the divergent demands of Brussels, Ireland and her junior Democratic Unionist partners in respect of the Northern Irish border and the European Customs Union.

The Irish premier's comments came in a joint press conference with European Council President Donald Tusk after they met in the Irish capital Dublin.
