British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will on Thursday meet his Irish counterpart for last-ditch Brexit talks, with just days left to strike an EU divorce deal and both sides blaming each other for an impasse.

Johnson will sit down with Ireland’s leader Leo Varadkar at an undisclosed location in northwest England for crunch conversations following several days of recriminations over the failure to find a compromise.

“The prime minister and the Taoiseach will meet tomorrow at lunchtime in the north west of England to discuss Brexit,” a spokesperson for Johnson’s Downing Street office said, referring to the Irish leader.

“This will be a private meeting to allow both leaders and their teams to have detailed discussions.”

By the day, MPs will have a clear picture of the European Union’s response to the Brexit deal brokered by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

According to media reports, Cabinet ministers are privately concerned at suggestions the prime minister may try to circumvent the Benn act which is aimed at forcing him to request a Brexit delay if he fails to reach a deal.

Johnson mind his proposals provide a new way to avoid a hard border between British province Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland after Brexit.

It would take the province out of the EU’s customs union but keep it largely aligned with the bloc’s “single market” standards and regulations.

The British leader’s plans would also see Northern Irish politicians given a vote every four years on maintaining the agreed arrangements.

Brussels is adamant it will not agree to any plan that undermines the single market or leaves Ireland exposed, and that hands hardliner unionists in the north a veto.
