May has stated that the UK will not be remaining in the customs or single market.
The Irish government, backed by the EU has raised the possibility of NI maintaining the terms of the customs/single market.
Foster has said NI will depart the Union on the same terms as the rest of the U.K.
The Tories cannot usurp the DUP because foolishly, they now rely on the DUP for votes in Westminster.
18 months since Brexit and not a dickiebird on what the Irish border will look like. Two weeks left until the December deadline and Leo and Simon (quite rightly) threatening a veto on trade discussions unless Whitehall surprise us all with a credible border plan in two weeks.
All of the above makes it increasingly likely that there will be a hard border on the island because the DUP who have the Tories over a barrel, will not accept any kind of regulatory divergence from the rest of the U.K effectively putting the border in the Irish Sea.
So should the Irish State begin preparations for this eventuality?
Will violence return to the island?
Has the time come for FF FG Lab and SF to promote a United Ireland as State policy?
