Ah, that Irish border, always a source of strife.

DUP threatens to pull support from Theresa May’s government if she backs down over post-Brexit Irish border

The Democratic Unionist Party has dramatically threatened to rethink its deal to prop up Theresa May in power if she compromises over the Irish border after Brexit.

Sammy Wilson, one of the DUP’s 10 MPs, said the party would not accept any moves that would see Northern Ireland “treated differently than the rest of the UK”.

Sounds like May is trying to have the best of both worlds: Northern Ireland in the EU while simultaneously not in the EU. Sounds like a quantum problem in physics. Physicists might find a solution, who knows, but I doubt May will. Ireland is what is going to scupper Brexit, because Ireland is what is going to scupper May.
