$36 mn fund to help United Kingdom nationals with European Union forms

Dublin says Boris Johnson has 'no credible alternative' to backstop

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson met Merkel in Berlin on August 21, when she challenged Britain to come up with alternatives to the Irish border backstop within 30 days.

The UK's negotiators will now meet their European Union counterparts twice a week for the whole of September.

"The decision about what happens to Brexit shouldn't be a matter of what Boris Johnson decides", said Bernard Hurley, 71, who turned out in Westminster.

According to the withdrawal deal agreed between Theresa May and the EU, UK nationals would have kept their freedom of movement rights during a transition period.

Mr Coveney mentioned: 'We've all the time mentioned if there are options to the backstop that do the identical job, then let's hear them, and if we will work out a deal on that foundation so be it.

"What I want to do now, which is what I think most people in this country want the government to do, is get on and try and get an agreement - but if we can't get an agreement, get ready to come out anyway", he said.

Irish deputy PM Simon Coveney insisted the PM had not offered a "credible" alternative, and the idea of settling the issue after the United Kingdom leaves was "not going to fly". "It could possibly't merely be this notion that 'look, we will need to have the backstop eliminated and we are going to clear up this drawback sooner or later negotiation" with none credible approach of doing that. "But it has got to be credible".

"'It is advised that the UK Government has recognized that 1.3 million British people on the continent - 60 percent of whom couldn't vote at the 2016 Referendum in their lead future - desire and deserve technical help to regularise their residency position after Brexit", she advised Euronews.

"We have seen a dip in overall business confidence this month, with firms appearing less positive about their own trading prospects and the broader economy", Hann-Ju Ho, senior economist at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said.

"If that changes, great".

Speaking on Newstalk, the Foreign Affairs Minister said Mr Johnson's team had not offered any concrete alternatives to the backstop. And if we can work out a deal on that basis, so be it, but it's got to be credible.

Businesses have been warning of long tailbacks for lorries transporting goods between mainland Europe and Britain, and the British government has said most goods from the European Union will be allowed into Britain without full customs checks for at least three months if there is a no deal Brexit.
