IRELAND - Brexit: Theresa May accused of 'switching her language' over Irish border

Former taoiseach (Irish prime minster) Bertie Ahern has accused Prime Minster Theresa May of "switching her language" over a physical border between Northern Ireland and the Republic after Brexit.

He told The Observer that "any kind of physical border" would be "bad for the peace process".

Mrs May has said she wants a "seamless, frictionless border" after Brexit.

She also said that the ability of people to move freely across the border is "an essential part of daily life".

However, Mr Ahern, who played a key role in the Northern Ireland peace process, said she appeared to be changing her stance.

"(May) seems to be switching her language," he said.
