On deadline day in Brussels, Theresa May was hoping for a breakthrough to finally take Brexit negotiations to the next level. But suddenly, the Northern Ireland’s first minister objected to a special status post-Brexit for the EU’s only land border with the United Kingdom. Arlene Foster’s unionist DUP party only has 10 seats at Westminster, but those 10 seats are what’s propping up Theresa May’s government. Will she bend or bring it down? What’s Ireland’s post-Brexit future?
