The Channel 4 poll also revealed a national split over the prospect of Brexit triggering the break-up of the United Kingdom: 44% of respondents said they were very or quite concerned about the possibility of Northern Ireland leaving the United Kingdom, while 42% were not very or not at all concerned.

Most German firms that export to Britain are poorly prepared for a no-deal Brexit, a survey by the IW economic institute showed on Tuesday, highlighting the risk that a disorderly British exit from the European Union could hurt Europe's largest economy.

The Sunday Times said the plan would resolve the vexed issue of the Irish border, which is the main stumbling block in the Brexit talks, by avoiding the need to treat Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the UK.

"But the prime minister says we are 95 percent there".

Justice Secretary David Gauke warned that a no-deal Brexit would be bad for the UK.

The DUP's Donaldson, whose party has repeatedly criticized Dublin's approach, said a no-deal Brexit would have serious consequences for Ireland's economy and he "can't understand why Irish Government seems so intent on this course".

However, the newspaper also reported that the new deal will include an "exit clause" created to convince those who support Brexit that remaining in the customs union is only temporary.

Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly invited Doria Ragland over to Great Britain for Christmas. It has been said the the Queen was very taken with Doria following the royal wedding.

Downing Street called the leaders' discussion a "constructive conversation", and said May and Varadkar had agreed that any backstop must be temporary. "That's why we do not just elect a parliament once and leave it at that", he said.

Northern Isles MP Alistair Carmichael said that the results were "no surprise" and that the door is still open for another referendum owing to the political mess in Westminster.

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

"This is the backstop", he added, saying the United Kingdom had agreed that it would apply "unless and until" a close future relationship eliminated any need for Border infrastructure and checks.

Mr Coveney's spokesperson said the European Union had been united through the Brexit process and the UK had given written commitments that the Withdrawal Agreement would give a legal guarantee of no return to a hard Border in Ireland in any circumstance.

"I very much hope and I very much expect that the Taoiseach, the Government and the (Michel) Barnier team will remain on track, I fully expect that the promises and commitments freely made last December to protect Ireland to be honoured, and it is the job of the Taoiseach to ensure that it is so".
