You should be writing scripts for Fair City!While it makes geographical sense to make the border the Irish Sea, the British would feel that this would take Ireland one step closer to a united Ireland and in their minds this would register as loosing and the British arrogance still makes them believe superiority is theirs.
The British give nought for peace in Ireland, the Good Friday Agreement or anything that brings stability to a once colonised country.
They will throw peace in Ireland, trade, the free movement area and the ex pats living in Ireland to the dogs if it makes them look like they, in their own feeble minds, won a war. They will not care that this isolates Ireland from Europe as they want desperately for another country to exit the EU, so that they can crow 'how right that they were' to leave. They care nought for the effect that it would have on Ireland or any other country that they could manipulated into leaving.
They expected other countries to leave and thus be the 'leaders' again.
