European Union letter in full: What assurances have been offered for Brexit?

Mr Wilson told the BBC he believed the defeat cemented his party's concerns about the backstop, and urged the prime minister to go back to Brussels and renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.

"But the reason why [then-Secretary of State for Brexit] David Davis and I had to resign is that unfortunately the officials of the Prime Minister worked around ministers in the department responsible to come up with this ridiculous half-in, half-out plan, and that is the heart of our difficulties", he said. "It is a bit of a nonsense to talk about a hard border".

Ireland's prime minister has denied having secret plans to introduce checks at the border with Northern Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The European Union (EU) will intensify its preparations for a scenario in which Britain leaves the bloc without a Brexit deal, the bloc's chief executive and Belgium's prime minister said on Tuesday.

Trump could face an uphill battle finding someone who can be confirmed by the Senate in the wake of Mattis' acrimonious departure. Mattis, who officially resigned December 31, during a subsequent Q&A session with reporters.

A newspaper reported that the Tanaiste told Mr Ross: "But once you start talking about checks anywhere near the border, people will start delving into that and all of a sudden we'll be the government that reintroduced a physical border on the island of Ireland".

Leo Varadkar was taking questions from opposition leader Micheal Martin after a tape emerged of the Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney admitting that checks on goods moving between the United Kingdom and Ireland will be necessary in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

At the top of it, the enforcer of the UK Conservative party Gareth Johnson said he quits the UK government the day before the meaningful vote in the House of Commons on Tuesday.
