Forget cherry picking and security — focus on fixing Irish border, EU tells May

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/forget-cherry-picking-and-security-focus-on-fixing-irish-border-eu-tells-may-pqr8n6585

I honestly do not care how mad the UK get on the issue of the EU just that they keep it to the British Island. This conservative government is "bag of fighting cats" and have not a single good idea on how the Irish border question.

The DUP now need to explain what their plan is for the Irish border. They are the ones who are keeping the conservatives in power. It is their responsibility to make sure the economy of Northern Ireland does not suffer at the hands of this Conservative Brexit.

The whole Brexit shambles was always all about civil war in the British Tory party.
The DUP will be thrown under the Brexit bus at the appropriate time, better still, they know it.
Ironically the DUP are rabid Brexiteers.

I think the EU will allow a border in Ireland. Fine Gael will do nothing. They will accept it. Time will tell who is right or who is wrong. I am betting the EU and British will look at FG and Varadker and will think he is a weak man.

Don't worry, they're going to build a bridge between NI and Scotland. That'll keep the Union safe.

UK Parliament itself, just passed a bill into law that explicitly prohibits a hard border in ireland, according to T.D. Richard Boyd Barrett on RTE today.

Caroline Nokes UK Minister, said 3 weeks ago that checks will be in the ports, not along the partition line, in an answer to questions about the new border guards being recruited in the 6 counties - making the de-facto border in the Irish Sea.

Ha, the d1ckheafs would probably be looking to march on it whilst ludicrously proclaiming it was their traditional route :?

They really are on another planet if they are serious about this nonsense....

What is wrong with building bridges?

It'd be hilarious if they built this bridge and then Scotland voted to go indy and NI voted to join us.

Strong whiff of desperation emanating from Unionists trapped in Ireland as they see the clock ticking down.

Tick-Tock :lol:

It might be worth taking a look at the whole thing from a Scottish pov before anybody gets carried away with themselves.

Which is to say that a lot of fat old white men with orange sashes and orange faces watched younger men in pseudomilitary uniforms marching around waving any flag except the flag of Scotland, as they marked a battle between English and Dutch kings that took place in Ireland 17 years before the UK ever existed, and proclaiming their willingness to “defend” Cowdenbeath – not from poverty, not from inequality, not from bigotry, not from Vladimir Putin but from the evil menace of Roman Catholics.

Take note of some of the BTL comments too.

If! If! If!

If only you had a brain.
Scotland is waiting in the long grass - what do you think is going to happen if the occupied 6 counties remain in the CU and the SM as guaranteed by England in Dec - Scotland votes for independence - end of the UK.

Since when have England had a say in Brexit?

Thought Leo said Ireland could not have a say because it was just UK v EU?

England voted the occupied 6 counties of Ireland and Scotland out of the EU.

Oh building bridges is great ,,, let the DUPlicitous start off by building bridges that count re equality & genuine power sharing, not some idiotic white elephant that would quite simply be a colossal waste of time & money....

Spending billions on an idiotic project like this would be solely for massaging crackpot unionisms desire to be in Scotland & away from Ireland ... its entire concept is bigotry & anti/irishness ,,.. there is simply NO economic reality to this ludicrous venture .... it’s 100% nonsense
