The UK/Ireland border post Brexit.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39867790
If the EU insist on a hard brexit as seems likely the Irish government could lose immediate access to its largest export partner the UK and would have trouble getting goods to mainland europe through the UK without lots of paperwork. Their govt should have a quick referendum vote on whether to leave and do as we have.Without leaving the EU Ireland could become a very bad place to live very quickly
The only way to secure a border to the level promised by the Leave campaign is with a wall that is regularly patrolled/controlled along its entire length. In the Schengen zone the people of Europe realise that 50'000 kms worth of walls is a big job.
More winging remoaners! Don't they realise their soverignty will keep them warm and well fed once we've left the EU. They don't need immigrants, there's millions of Brits clamouring for low paid farm labouring jobs.
Another example of the EU creating problems rather than solving them.
Brexit cannot come soon enough.
How about having a referendum to let the whole of Ireland decide if they want to be part of a bigger United Kingdom of part of the shrinking EU.
Either way it would bring the whole country together and solve a lot of problems.
The thing is, the Northern Irish can’t have it both ways. If they want an open border with the Republic they should leave the UK and become part of the Republic. If they want to remain part of the United Kingdom then they will have to accept a hard border between NI and Eire.
I think we have to recognize that what WE want from a border, to prevent unwanted immigration via the UK's back door, is not what the EU will want, stopping Irish people avoiding EU duties. Doing the former won't cost much, a small price for the UK to pay, doing the latter will be hugely difficult and expensive, so let the EU pay for it. I couldn't care less if the Irish can get stuff cheap in NI!
It is unlikely that 3rd world ethnic minorities will use dinghies to Rep. Ireland so as long as Ireland enforces the legal arrival of genuine EU citizens and deals with the individuals who use falsified EU passports, then the Ireland issue should be easy to deal with.
If ethnic minorities abuse the route to enter UK illegally via Ireland, then Border Force will need to check ALL Passports.
The easiest idea would be a hard border or as prefered by Eire they cough up say 1 million £ to have each Unionists leave for the UK & get a united ireland then block all irish from the rest of the UK with a hard border no trade & watch the die
