Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another Boris headache, the ERG is not on board if the DUP isn't supporting the UK-EU Brexit deal.

DUP says it cannot support Boris Johnson's Brexit deal | The Guardian |

The DUP statement added: "We will continue to work with the government to try and get a sensible deal that works for Northern Ireland and protects the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom."

Johnson has met Foster and Dodds three times in the last three days as he tried to shore up their support before Saturday's deadline to prevent a delay to Brexit.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the European commission president, told Johnson in a phone call on Thursday morning that time was short if leaders were to approve the Brexit deal this week.

A spokesman for the commission said: "Every hour and minute counts before the [European council],. We want a deal".
