Regrexit? British voters would now back staying in the EU, poll shows

Ireland's Taoiseach Leo Varadkar

"That's why we do not just elect a parliament once and leave it at that", he said.

The EU agreed to a compromise on the backstop agreement to keep the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland last week, signalling they would accept keeping the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs union until both sides sign up to a deal that would prevent the need for a hard border.

Although there has been no outward sign of a Brexit breakthrough, Irish and British officials said they are increasingly optimistic that a solution can be found.

His comments came after Ireland's deputy premier Simon Coveney said he believes a Brexit deal could be reached by the end of November, with his Westminster counterpart, Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington, saying negotiators were "very close", after the pair held talks in Dublin.

Negotiations between Britain and the European Union (EU) over Britain's departure from the bloc have stalled over the issue of the border between EU member Ireland and the United Kingdom's (UK) Northern Ireland.

The IW survey of more than 1,100 German firms that export industrial goods and services to Britain showed about 30 percent had made no provisions for a no-deal Brexit, with a further 44 percent having made only low-scale preparations.

Brussels may put forward an "independent mechanism" by which Britain could end a temporary customs arrangement with the European Union, according to The Times.

The Irish Government is opposed to any suggestion the backstop would have an "exit clause" as suggested in the "Sunday Times" report. That agreement is the most important achievement in Irish-British relations in modern times.

He told RTÉ's "The Week in Politics": "Unfortunately that's the position that we find ourselves in now".

A spokesperson for the PM said: "This is all speculation".

He said there was a "rapidly ticking clock" but that minds were now being focused with a view to concluding a deal and he welcomed that.

The report says senior sources say the prime minister has secured private concessions from Brussels that will allow her to keep the whole of Britain in a customs union, avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland, the as yet unresolved issue blocking a future trading deal with the EU.

Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald has urged the Irish premier to stand firm over a proposed backstop plan to prevent a hard border in Ireland after Brexit.

He added: "We hope a deal can be done but we're not there yet".
