“For Alliance, an open-ended backstop in place until or unless it is superseded is critical to protect the Good Friday Agreement and to avoid a hard border in Ireland. It is useful in many ways of aspects of the backstop can apply UK-wide.

“Ultimately, the backstop is only an insurance approach to Brexit. There is no such thing as a good or sensible Brexit.”
