We don't have a veto on the Brexit deal, only on any deals the EU/UK might conclude after a no deal Brexit. At that stage the disastrous effects of a no deal Brexit would put huge pressure on the UK to compromise. Also, as the Tory/DUP government is unlikely to survive a no-deal Brexit, the DUP wouldn't have a veto either. It's all about the border, as far as Ireland is concerned.
