The British Government is making plans to militarise the border. A paramilitary force of 1000 armed English police is being trained in secret to operate along the border to combat smuggling and protect customs posts from possible attack from the IRA. The new B-Specials are being recruited from England rather than locally because the PSNI refused to cooperate with British Government requests for a border force for fear that recruits living along the border might be targeted by the IRA. The PSNI do not want to be associated with partition. Historically, the B-Specials were exclusively Protestant and mostly ex members of the UVF which later became the UDR.

One wonders how Leo will react to this?

There's not much Leo can do, but it certainly gives the lie to the Brexiters nonsense that nobody is going to erect a hard border after Brexit and the EU are simply using the Irish border as a negotiating tactic.

They will deploy as many more as needed, a cheap war on their doorstep to keep the plebs mind off other things as their economy implodes.

Yep 1000 will become 10000 and it will be the fault of the "obdurate" Irish.
And just watch the Dublin media and politicians row in behind that.

The Brits described the Black-and-Tans as a 'police' force. This is just a new version of the same policy.

Tommy Gorman on the radio just now . "England doesn't have a surplus of police to send to Ireland. It won't happen." A fair point.

They'll need police in England to police England....

And no, the Dublin media won't support 1000's of English police being sent to Ireland.

Drew Harris's loyalties will be tested.
Indeed, and it is the south he has sworn loyalty to. I think if he finds himself conflicted he should step down which would be a shame cos AGS need an outsider to make them fit for purpose.

In fairness I wouldn't trust Tommie Gorman if he told me water was wet and grass is green. 'orrible little man.

But given the likely chaos in Britain, yeah it is probably unlikely they will actually have any spare military or police resources available to "defend Ulster". This is probably just waffle to appease the DUP (while outraging everyone else).

And if they do decide to divert the attention of the English untermensch with a "nice little war somewhere".....been there, done that, bring. it. on.

They may be too busy in England dealing with the fallout from Brexit there.

If they do this now, they may as well fully withdraw from the 'vote option' from the Black Friday agreement in few years. The solution would be to do a vote as soon as possible and rejoin 2 pieces of the island back together.

Nonsense, they have troops and will send them as a "Police Force"

Police reinforcements for Northern Ireland in case of no-deal Brexit | UK news | The Guardian

Disasterous if a militarised border goes up. Troubles will start again, Brits are a dangerous shower of cvnts :mad2:
The Brits described the Black-and-Tans as a 'police' force. This is just a new version of the same policy.
From the link above.........

Almost 1,000 police officers from England and Scotland are to begin training for deployment in Northern Ireland in case of disorder from a no-deal Brexit, the Guardian has learned.
The plans were put in place after Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) chiefs asked for reinforcements to deal with any trouble that arises from a hard border. The training for officers from English forces and Police Scotland is expected to begin this month.
So nothing to do with the guff from the OP of militarising the border.

You may well be right yet ponder this, are there any reasons at all that Irish people might be a tad suspicious, at all, of British plans for sending extra bodies over here. How did that work out in the past. I have asked the question, what are the alternatives given the likelihood of a hard Brexit?

Oh for goodness sake, are you a bloody imbecile or what? If there is trouble because of a hard Border it will be at the border.
And for those who think the British don't have the men in uniform to send over, they will just get others to swap uniform like before. But this time they will probably find enough of the same colour. We are heading backwards at a rate of knots because of the DUP bigots and Tory self interest, it has always been thus.
