British Prime Minister Theresa May is in Brussels today, seeking concessions from top EU officials in relation to the Brexit backstop.
She's looking for a time limit on the border guarantee, following a vote by British MPs.
The visit comes a day after controversial remarks about Brexiteers from the European Council President Donald Tusk - who said there was a "special place in hell" for those who promoted Brexit without even a plan to carry it out.
The comments were met with anger from British MPs who've accused him of being arrogant.
I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.

The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was in Brussels yesterday and last night said there's very strong support for Ireland from our EU partners.
In the talks, Mrs May will say London is examining alternative arrangements to the backstop, and considering legal changes that could provide the type of guarantees MPs of all parties have said they need.
She'll also pledge that her government now wants urgently to work with the EU to secure such changes and claim the EU shares the UK's commitment to leave with a deal.
After her talks in Brussels, she'll travel to Dublin for dinner with Mr Varadkar tomorrow.
