That is quite possible. However, if the cameras were in the context of a reasonably seamless "soft" border, with free trade, then we have to ask ourselves would any such shooting be a valid political action, or would it be just vandalism? That would be if the UK signed a withdrawal deal.McCann put it quite simply in an interview with Pat Kenny on Newstalk the other morning. He said any infrastructure on the border, even just cameras, would be shot at. People would need to be brought in to protect that infrastructure. Then they too would be shot at.
What would your attitude be to somebody shooting up the cameras on the gantry above the M50 toll bridge in Dublin, which divides southsiders from northsiders?
If the UK does not sign a withdrawal deal, and the EU denies them free trade, then why would they want to seal off the border from their side? Its their back door into the single market.
It would have to be guarded by the Irish/EU army. Would they be shot at?
