    At the end of the day, this is not a caricature, its reality

    And it is something that has been known about all along.

    Therefore the problems were having now have been foreseeable all along.

    Therefore the problems we are having right now are what Leave voters voted for, and wanted, especially all those who refused to countenance an opportunity to stop and think again, especially all those who shouted for a hard Brexit, especially all those who just wanted "to get Brexit done".

    Leave won. They got what they wanted. It really is past time for them to stop moaning about that.

    That is ******.
    The Republic of Ireland does not want border controls at the UK border with the EU.

    So NI does?

    By what margin?

    Talking of political acuity, hows this working out for you?

    There has always been a land border and customs checks.
    You are in denial, the reason there is no checks at the real border is because the Republic of Ireland has used the threat of violence to force the UK government to retreat to the Irish sea.
    The Irish republic and the EU now have free access to UK sovereign territory without any checks whatsoever.

    The UK reneged on the Munich agreement.
    Agreements are reneged on all the time.
    Time already for Boris Johnson to invoke article 16 and tell the EU to feck off.

    And the guns and the bombs will be rolled out again...

    But you didn't answer the question I posed...

    Are you one of those who believes that the return of violence to N.I. is a 'price worth paying' for brexit?

    Yes or no?

    Where is the threat of violence coming from?


    The British government hasn't threatened violence as far as i am aware.

    If the UK government carries out customs checks on the UK /EU border in N. I., what do you think would happen.

    You don't think sending the army in once doesn't relate to violence?

    Fact of life - no boarder between N and S Ireland is also enshrined in international law and it wasn't just the UK that achieved that.

    No more than sending a policeman in to arrest somone who is trying to burn your house down.

    Where is your belief that you can evade a question like that coming from?

    Whether it has, or has not, been "threatened" by anybody is irrelevant, as the question wasnt about that.
