Theresa May has no option but to agree to a backstop solution to the Irish border problem that would keep Northern Ireland in the EU Single Market and Customs Union until the future trade relationship between the UK as a whole and the EU is settled, which may take many years. This backstop would ensure no physical checks at the border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland, but goods moving from the rest of Britain into Northern Ireland would be subject to customs procedures.
