British Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking a lifeline from European Union leaders Thursday after winning a no-confidence vote among her own Conservative lawmakers.May's Brexit Secretary, Stephen Barclay, told the BBC that there were signs of "positive" movement from the EU on the one issue that has proved the most intractable -- the provisions designed to prevent the re-implementation of physical border controls between Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., and the Republic of Ireland, a member of the EU.Under this so-called "backstop," the U.K. would remain part of the EU customs union if the two sides couldn't agree on another way to avoid a "hard border". Among EU leaders there is sympathy for May's predicament – but also exasperation at Britain's political mess.
