"We would ostensibly have to have a hard border there", Stride said of a no-deal scenario.

The Northern Irish party that props up Prime Minister Theresa May's government said on Friday it wanted to reach consensus on a deal that worked for the European Union and United Kingdom and that it saw paths to avoid the border backstop.

"The Taoiseach has consistently ruled out a border poll on Irish unity. Mr Varadkar knows full well the connotations of such statements and he knows it's nonsense".

Mr Varadkar said: "They don't exist and nobody has been able to show them to me". Today he paints a doomsday scenario of a return of soldiers to the border in the event of a no-deal Brexit. "That's just not a serious position".

Speaking to Ian Payne, Tory MP Dominic Grieve said that it was "quite clear" that MPs do not support leaving with no-deal and instead would be prepared to stop Brexit if they had to decide between the two. "We're the ones already giving".
