I said it at the start that we would see a hard Border.It's coming folks. There isn't a way to square the circles the Tory party have created for themselves. They've painted more red lines than a spelling teacher in a Healy Rae classroom. There's gonna be some sort of mutated monstrosity of a hatchet job of a border coming our way.
Whilst I have little doubt it will probably spontainously combust as an abomination in the eyes of all normalcy, the strange fish of conservative Britain are mated to the zealous gombeens of "Ulster" unionism and will give birth to this creature.
I wonder what will happen on the first day it comes into existence? The contractor tasked with sticking in the drone docking station/cctv/dream-catcher/fairy dust distributor along some boreen in the middle of bandit country better have van insurance!
Who will be the first republican hacker to do a d-dos attack* on the magical make a wish website where you log your intention not to smuggle?
Will cows be forced to swear a loyalty oath to the queen?
If a tree falls across the border and there isn't a camera scanning it's QR code did it really happen?
Joking aside the sheer stupidity of this plan should be enough to stop it but the momentum of ignorance behind it means they will try to bull through.
I expect the usual argument ala the daily express that they just won't bother enforcing it will be the fall back option. The WTO is very clear on what that means. Imagine being the British civil servant tasked with making new trade deals and the first item on the agenda from Johnny foreigner will be "this is all very lovely Sir Humphrey but we will just avail of the Most favoured Nation clause under WTO rules and ship our glass encrusted rat dropping cereal for kids (Now with Weals disease) directly to Dover thank you very much".
I can't imagine the British army or PSNI will fancy a sun holiday in Armagh anytime soon.
There is only one solution. Everyone knows what that is. Even the DUP know. The mad thing is it would make the north wealthy and give it the best of both worlds. Truly the Unionists have the worst traits of both nations. The begrudgery of the Irish mixed with the arrogance of the British.
So what happens when a border that isn't there, isn't enforced and isn't recognised meets with reality?
How will the people of the border deal with the thing?
What does the UK do? What do we do? If we can keep this solely about the border rather than the circus that is brexit Britain please.
*No. I don't know what that means either. Don't push me ok!
Many of you on here laughed at the King, but the King, as usual, was right.
ALL HAIL THE FCKING KING!
