Interesting that Leo floats the idea of ROI joining the UK, could be the answer to it all, and perhaps he realises that their contributions will rise dramatically when the UK leaves.
A sensible idea, didn’t ROI get ‘forced’ into voting more than once til the EU got the answer they required?

Please be gentle with me ....... why can’t NI stay in the EU as it did vote Remain?
Customs Border could then be the coast of the rest of U.K.
I don't have the exact figures to hand, but well over half of NI exports go to GB.

Why would NI put a border up with its largest trading partner and split themselves from this market?

Also, it would split NI off from the rest of the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'.

All you exported was buses and that finished last week .

Will you be manning the sniper rifle at the border @james ds ? That's fighting talk there. Anyone would think you Southerners didn't want peace.
I'm all out for peace , but things are still very raw up north and anything could set it off again. Splitting communities against their will is one sure way to start it again.

Being fairly thick, and very cynical, I just don't understand why the Irish border was not a problem when the original EU-proposed Canada type deal was on offer, but that it became one subsequently once the EU saw that TM was on their side. Clearly it is not an 'impossible' matter to overcome for the EU, because they 'overcame' it back then.

I'll be grateful to any able to enlighten me as to what - other than TM's selling out the UK - changed to make the matter 'impossible'.

Thanks in advance... :)

Even my wife questioned me about Northern Ireland this morning
Do we have to spend the rest of our lives in chains because they cant sort out 2% of our trade
