Border bother: Theresa May scrambles to salvage Brexit breakthrough

Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN On deadline day in Brussels, Theresa May was hoping for a breakthrough to finally take Brexit negotiations to the next level. But suddenly, the Northern Ireland’s first minister objected to a special status post-Brexit for the EU's only land border with the United Kingdom. Arlene Foster's unionist DUP party only has 10 seats at Westminster, but those 10 seats are what's propping up Theresa May's government. Will she bend or bring it down? What's Ireland's post-Brexit future? Produced by Michele BARBERO, Alessandro XENOS, VAN MEGUERDITCHIAN. http://www.france24.com/en/taxonomy/emission/18881 Visit our website: http://www.france24.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://f24.my/youtubeEN Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FRANCE24.English Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/France24_en
