'May's bitter BETRAYAL of 17.4m’ Farage blasts May for Brexit climbdown over Irish border


The former Ukip leader said the announcement that the UK will continue to accept “regulatory alignment” between Northern Ireland and the EU would “lead to endless problems in Scotland”. 

Like Northern Ireland, Scotland voted by a significant margin to Remain in the EU and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has been agitating for a special place within the Single Market. 

This afternoon she tweeted: “If one part of UK can retain regulatory alignment with EU and effectively stay in the single market (which is the right solution for Northern Ireland) there is surely no good practical reason why others can’t.” 

The revelations came as the EU side signalled a major breakthrough in the Brexit talks, with a declaration of sufficient progress at this month’s Council summit now very likely. 

Mr Farage said: “This is a bitter betrayal of 17.4 million people. It is a concession too far, for it will lead to endless problems in Scotland and it damages the integrity of the United Kingdom.” 

This afternoon she tweeted: “If one part of UK can retain regulatory alignment with EU and effectively stay in the single market (which is the right solution for Northern Ireland) there is surely no good practical reason why others can’t.”
