Do you understand what the term "draft" means in this context?

You do realise this wasn't signed and agreed by anyone)
The documents speak for themselves - they say what was agreed and signed up to, and is waiting for legal text, so that what was agreed and signed up to can be put into law.

But it's not signed. It was a draft document put forward at a point in time and the UK added the amendment of no border between ni and gb the very next day.

It is not sitting waiting to be signed. It's in the dustbin of history.

Your problem is the brits agreed to the Backstop, full stop, in Dec 2017 - and the EU is negotiating the withdrawal agreement on the basis of paragraph 49 - not paragraph 50, as stated in the March 2018 'Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community'.

It states,

"With respect to the DRAFT PROTOCOL ON IRELAND/NORTHERN IRELAND (Dec.2017), the negotiators (brits) agree that a legally operative version of the “backstop” solution for the border between Northern Ireland
and Ireland, in line with paragraph 49 of the Joint Report, should be agreed as part of the legal text of
the Withdrawal Agreement, to apply unless and until another solution is found."

This is electoral politics during a spectacularly volatile period. Very little can be stated with certainty.


Newrytard has demonstrated his inability many times his complete ignorance of most subjects under discussion on these forums.

Barnier stands firm on post-Brexit border in Irish Sea
EU says border checks issue a ‘matter of urgency’ and asks UK for data on flow of goods

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/aug/31/barnier-stands-firm-erecting-post-brexit-border-irish-sea
Raab let the cat out of the bag during a select committee meeting on the 24th July. One hour in.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bcqn8r/select-committees-brexit-negotiations-committee

When Sammy Wilson asked him about border checks in the Irish Sea, Raab said no - but there would be "regulation" checks in the Irish Sea. Hahahahaha

Funny thing is Wilson didn't confront him over that. I think the Unionists have accepted the game is over for them.

The RoI can turn off the lights if that happens.
Not sure about turning off the lights but I do know for sure that there is only one oil refinery on this island and that is Whitegate in Cork Harbour. Also know that all grids feed out from Dublin. Could Antrim , N. Down and E Derry be cut off? Probably. If we couldn't do it at the flick of a switch then I am sure our people in the 6 could blow them. Its going to be tough. But we have been through far worse. The prize is worth the pain.

Seriously. Forget the points scoring crap. If there was a UI vote tomorrow in the 6 how would you see it going? I would say 56-44 for the Union. Because prods are much older than our people and also more likely to vote. Plus Castle Catholics. Would you accept repartition or just accept its all over? However repartition may then be a more major topic. Where stand you on that?

There'll be no repartition.

And we'll never accept it's over.

We'll see who can endure the most.

You are in for a rude awakening moron - it's the British army that will be sent in to sort you tossers out before they leave my country for good.

You squatters are in for a big surprise it seems.

There will be no British army mutiny this time around.
Maybe maybe not.

NI is a lot closer than the Falklands.

And sh1t though the Argies were they were still a hundred times better than your outfit.

Maybe a war between the UK and the RoI is what you want.

Let me spell it out for you moron - if you tossers do not obey the democratic will of the people of Ireland under the terms of the GFA reunification process, and start the troubles again - it will be the British army that will be sent in to sort you tossers out before the 6 counties are handed back.

That is what I meant by there will be no British army mutiny this time - the reference to Home Rule was clearly lost on you.

You tossers are on your own this time - bring it on if you dare - you will be obliterated.
