    Mr Bumbalina should have kept quiet about his little enterprise. He must have been overheard.

    Agree. Media are almost as culpable as the government in this mess. Same with Covid.

    You're as bad as transam with his persistent spelling mistake:
    ounce ≠ once
    boarder ≠ border
    boarder = lodger, or student in a boarding school
    border = frontier between different countries.

    Handling the Irish boarder problem means evicting them, getting them to pay their rent etc.

    Brexers to blame.

    Theresa May, Johnson’s predecessor, said no British prime minister could ever agree to a border down the Irish Sea. But Johnson made that concession to “get Brexit done”, to force an election, to avoid creating a border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic and to keep Britain out of a customs union with the EU.

    I think Boris has damaged the UK, no matter what happens with the N. I. protocol, things will never be the same again.
    The psychological impact of his actions on peoples perception of what the UK stands for has been profound.

    Depends who follows in his footsteps. Trump is a distant memory (in my perception anyway) of loudmouth twittering, fake news US leadership.

    And has to clear up his mess.

    Although NI has been a thorn in GB's side for a long time.
    It wouldn't surprise me if there is an underhand long-term objective of a NI - GB divorce.
    Apparently, the population is inevitably moving in that direction.
    Although not all Catholics support a re-united Ireland.
    I assume not all Protestants support Unionism.

    It is likely Catholics will outnumber Protestants by 2021 in Northern Ireland, according to a leading academic.
    Dr Paul Nolan, who specialises in monitoring the peace process and social trends, told BBC News NI that there could be more Catholics than Protestants in Northern Ireland by the centenary of the foundation of the state.

    New light shed on prospect of Catholic majority in North
    University report shows how future trends might affect fluid nature of sectarianism

    Catholics have always outnumbered Protestants in Ireland.
    Protestants are still a majority where it counts and that is in East Ulster.
    A form of repartition may have to be considered to secure a future Protestant/Unionist majority.
    Anyway, in the last census only 26% of people gave their national identity as Irish against 45% who gave British as their national identity.
