Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ITV's Robert Peston is reporting Downing Street sources as downbeat about a deal, but the issue seems to be what is on the table is not going to get the support of the DUP.

The DUP's Arlene Foster and Nigel Dodds had a second 90 minute briefing with Downing Street officials last night but declined to comment. A spokesman said: "It would be fair to indicate gaps remain and further work is required".

The Financial Times is reporting sources as saying the DUP were offered "billions not millions" as a sweetener.
