'We gave people the opportunity to make a choice. They don't want a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Theresa May said on Sunday she was focused on securing a deal based on her Chequers plan, but admitted to being "a little bit irritated" by constant speculation about her position. 'What we are talking about here is not a border - not a land border, not a sea border.

Mr Johnson has backed proposals by the pro-Brexit European Research Group that physical checks can be done away from the border, without keeping the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland tied to EU customs rules.
Most checks can take place away from the border, at company premises, or the market, ' Barnier said of customs and regulatory checks on goods that might move from British mainland to Northern Ireland.
"We need to challenge the assumptions of both these Irish backstops, or we are heading full throttle for the ditch with a total write-off of Brexit".
Third, Tusk said, the leaders should "reconfirm the need for a legally operational backstop on Ireland, so as to be sure that there will be no hard border in the future".
"It now seems that the Prime Minister and her Brexit team have also been conspiring behind closed doors trying to persuade the European Union not to listen to five million European Union citizens living in Scotland, the majority of whom don't want to leave", he told The National.
