1) Theresa May’s proposal to apply the Northern Irish backstop to the whole UK will be rejected.
2) the backstop is cherrypicking parts of the single market - the EU accepted it because of the unique circumstances of NI. It is NOT acceptfor the whole UK
3) Moreover, there is no way a decision on Customs Union can go into the Withdrawal Agreement. It can only be agreed under future relationship - important point of procedure
4) To conclude, the Customs Union announcement may be a big step for UK and is indeed important for the future, but it doesn’t solve the Irish border problem.

Expect the EU to up the pressure on this.
