Dutch government deny reports they are pushing for concessions on Irish border backstop

The Netherlands denied on Wednesday a report that it was pushing with Germany for the EU to make further concessions to Britain regarding the border between Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland.

German business daily Handelsblatt reported on Wednesday, citing diplomatic sources in Brussels, that Germany, the Netherlands and other countries are ready to make further concessions on the "backstop" arrangement to avoid a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Such concessions would only apply if Ireland approves, the newspaper added.

    "Y Beach", the Scottish Borderer cried,
    While panting up the steep hillside,
    "Y Beach!
    To call this thing a beach is stiff,
    It's nothing but a bloody cliff.
    Why beach?"'
