    Default Solutions to the Irish border issue

    Solutions to the Irish border issue:

    • Eire leave the EU and agree a customs union with the UK.
    • Eire leave the EU and re-join the UK.
    • Eire agree with the UK that they’ll police each others border with real checks at external ports and simple electronic passes for freight at the internal border and with an open border for citizens on the ground in Ireland.

    I think the last will happen because there’s no way Eire will erect bricks and mortar border posts on the 1st November

    You think the last will happen? Even typing out the first two shows that you’re a cretin.

    Ps. Unless you’re speaking Irish, it’s Ireland, not Eire. Unless you prefer that we all call it Perfidious Albion instead of Angleterre.

    Get you, Eire is simply a concise way of saying Southern Ireland. I take it you think everyone's a cretin who has a different POV? Ireland, as in Southern Ireland have a choice and those first two are perfectly valid choices although unlikely as their rulers won't let them anywhere near the option of leaving the EU. They also don't want a unified Ireland as even the Catholics in the North see they're onto a good thing with the >£10bn per year subsidy they enjoy. Southern Ireland can't afford integration financially, politically and socially

    Gah, FFS man, “Southern Ireland” is even worse! Where were you educated, in a skip?

    “Rulers” (and I know you’re using this pejoratively) has nothing to do with it. The people (remember them?) rather like being in the EU, by 93% at last poll.

    The only thing you’ve said that’s even close to making any sense is that they don’t want a unified Ireland. It’s probably too close to call, a referendum on uniting could go either way. It’s not just the cost, they’re a different people up there.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
