British Prime Minister Theresa May scrambled Tuesday to salvage a deal over the post-Brexit border in Ireland after it was rejected by her Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) allies, exposing the weakness of her position in EU negotiations.May met her cabinet on Tuesday morning, and British Finance Minister Philip Hammond said the government was still "very confident" of reaching a deal.May's domestic critics seized on her failure to secure a deal on Ireland, one of three issues on which she must make progress if EU leaders are to agree to open trade talks with Britain at a summit next week.However, failure to reach a deal on Ireland could hold up the entire process -- and if trade talks cannot start later this month, it makes it much harder for Britain to secure a trade deal before it leaves the EU in March 2019 .May cannot just ignore the DUP.
