Do they have a Scooby what this is exactly or how it would be implemented?

Continued free access to the single market? While at the same time free trade access to the rest of the UK and vice versa?

They seem to be looking for a Greenland deal in reverse. It won't work but they might as well aim high at the start. Its better than the DUP's strategy anyway which seems to involve bleating about special treatment for NI's agriculture in the European Parliament to the irritation of other British MEPs.

Much uncertainty in the Brit imposition of Brexit in the sick counties where the majority rejected it but according to your link, which I read, appears to show SF lobbying the people with real power in Europe and not that clown Broken something.

You haven't got a (scooby) clue what you are talking about if you think the idea is crazy. Anything is possible to achieve in terms of political structures, with a bit of imagination if enough people want it to happen. It isn't even news ffs, nor are advocates for it even confined to Sinn Fein. If you're going to start threads like this, the least that we expect of you is to do a bit of basic homework. :p

The brits will use the north to attain 'special status' for all the UK. If it becomes apparent during negotiations that the EU will not allow them to cynically exploit the peace process then May could well relent and allow the north a bespoke deal.

The North can't have a bespoke deal as long as it remains part of the UK. If NI became an independent state it might get a bespoke deal, or if the North accepted joint authority it might get a bespoke deal. As part of the UK, the North is facing hard Brexit along with England, Scotland and Wales.

The best option, IMO, would be a united Ireland.

Much as I'd like to see it happen, we are some distance away from making the break because of an infuriatingly dependent, subordinate mentality which has gripped so many people here, whose self-esteem is so absent that they believe in the lie of the collective uselessness of the people who inhabit the six north eastern counties. Sinn Fein don't help matters either of course. Our best option is a united Ireland but unionists will automatically turn their back on that for as long as the unity movement is headed by shinner leaders like Adams, who they almost universally loathe.
I wish Adams would get off the stage, though I have to admit that his "See you later alligator" quip in response to Foster yesterday was pretty amusing.:)

Unlike Marty, Adams is the brains behind SF. Whether he's leader or not is one thing, but he won't be leaving the stage any time soon.

The Sinn Fein murder gang are an irrelevance. Stick to giving Trump shamrock and milking the Good Friday Agreement. More people live in Greater Manchester than in Ireland

Of course one feels that it's impossible to actually embarrass the DUP. They just keep on going no matter how stupid they look. That was a haymaker there. It's a peculiar thing but they are not suffering the same sort of attacks from Irish people. I realise that SF can't exactly cut loose on them but I'd have thought that we've reached the stage that someone from the south could have a go without rekindling the troubles.
