    During the run-up to the Brexit referendum in June last year, some Irish politicians such as Enda Kenny did point out that the border would cause major complications in the event that the UK voted to leave the EU. They were invariably told to shut up and stop being "offensive".

    In my experience, there is a significant number of British (especially English) people who have never cottoned on to the relationships between these islands. Many are not precisely sure of Northern Ireland's position within the UK. Some seem to think that the Republic of Ireland is in the UK. In that light, it's no surprise that the NI/ROI border didn't feature as an issue in the campaign and - without actual evidence - I'd hazard a large bet that those who voted for Brexit were the ones who were by far the more ignorant about it.

    Well, sit back, my dear Brexiteers. Over the next few weeks, ye'll learn more about the NI/RoI border than ye learned in your whole lives.

    EDIT: Thanks to Deadlock for highlighting this:
    The Brexit minister David Davis thinks the Republic of Ireland is part of the UK

    I'm not really sure I want the likes of you here. My Ireland will learn that it must cooperate with all its neighbours, the US and Canada but keep as much control of its affairs as possible. The law will mean the law, not to be cherypicked by the EU or Irish government. We yield what we have to yield to survive in a hostile world. I will give you an example.

    We are forcing thousands of non - EU nationals to leave here every years after their 3 year term expires. Many or Politician nurses, hotel staff and car wash people. Meanwhile EU national can stay. Its not fair to discriminate like that. Brussels is a hot bed of lobbyists who have more access to the EU decision makers than our MEP's have. When Britian leaves, we should leave with it.

    I must have accidentally posted that. David Cameron is a nobody in this debate. He got the referendum and did us some service.

    Am I the only one here fearing the hard brexiters pushing a Crimea solution to the border problem?
