Brexit: British PM faces resistance to Irish border compromise

Britain's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has threatened to pull support from British Prime Minister Theresa May if she compromises over the Irish border after Brexit.

Sammy Wilson, one of the DUP's 10 MPs, said the party will not accept any move that treats Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the UK. The warning follows reports that special powers could be granted to Belfast allowing agriculture and energy rules to be aligned with the EU, rather than London, an attempt to meet the Irish government's demand for a guarantee there will be no hard border after Brexit.
