(Bloomberg) -- Prime Minister Theresa May is edging toward a Brexit deal. But glitches keep emerging.
DUP’s Foster Raises Alarm (7:10 a.m.)
May has written to Arlene Foster to tell her that the EU’s backstop -- the one that could carve Northern Ireland off from the rest of the U.K. - will be included in the divorce deal as an ultimate, last-resort guarantee, the Times reports. Foster, the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party that props up May’s government, says the letter raises "alarm bells."
Meanwhile Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar says the earliest chance for a EU summit to sign off on a deal is probably end-November, according to the Irish Times.
