    Theresa May resolves Northern Ireland border with Brexit plan that ‘could have

    " been written by Jacob Rees-Mogg’, according to reports"

    "A Whitehall source quoted in the piece said: “..................The small print is that Ireland is ****ed.”

    As far as I can see this means that instead of having customs posts between the Republic and Northern Ireland, the actual customs checks will be at the factories and businesses receiving the goods. Which means spot checks, which will probably be dropped as time goes by and the border will be effectively open.

    I can't see how the Republic will lose out but there you are.

    Not according to Leo,I still think a brexit might be sold down the river.https://www.theguardian.com/politics...-says-varadkar
    Since 1945 how often was the legitimacy of a general election result questioned and how many received 52% of the vote?

    I don't quite see what Varadkar can stand firm on.

    He can huff and puff as much as he likes but short of the Republic deploying its 7,000 strong army in a gallant but doomed attempt to seal a 350 mile border, I suspect that Leo is all mouth and no trousers.

    This is how bonded warehouses have been operating for years. All the revenue from Whiskey is collected this way.
    Don't let the *******s grind you down.
