Irish people north and south must resist any attempt at the re-imposition of border controls

Now that Britain is leaving the Eu I call on every Irish person to resist the reintroduction of border controls on our island .

Such a move would damage the Good Friday agreement and the peace process.

The future peace and prosperity of our island can not be dictated by non Irish people and unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.

Armed?

If Irish border controls are imposed again on this island it will indeed lead to serious trouble .

People are sick and fed up of the pigs in Europe dictating how Ireland manages its affairs.

I would agree. (not to armed resistance - that's just more lunacy)

A hard border is a retrograde step.

But the inevitable consequence is a hard border between the two islands. Can't see unionists stomaching that.

Oh FFS, there won't be any physical border.
Ever travelled from France into Switzerland ?

but this was all about controlling inward migration was it not? How can you do that without physical borders..

But what form of resistance are you calling for Irish people North and South to take?

There won't be a border, the border controls that existed in the 1990s were in place despite Ireland and the UK being EU members for over 20 years. Ireland and the UK have a Common Travel Area predating the EU.

Besides if a border were to go up, realistically the Tory led UK is not going to pay to maintain a massive 500km land border, they'll just put passport controls at the ferry ports, cheap as chips, we're all the one sort of paddy to them anyway.

The Irish government should offer unionists the ability to continue in the EU and keep their subsidies by uniting Ireland.

Send copies of p.ie posts written by TFM to all politicians in the UK and EU. They'll be begging us to stop in no time.

The anti-EU brigade have got their wishes.

Why should a minor matter like border control spoil the party?
