    Default Brits Make Plans To Militarise The Border. B-Specials Mark 2.

    The British Government is making plans to militarise the border. A paramilitary force of 1000 armed English police is being trained in secret to operate along the border to combat smuggling and protect customs posts from possible attack from the IRA. The new B-Specials are being recruited from England rather than locally because the PSNI refused to cooperate with British Government requests for a border force for fear that recruits living along the border might be targeted by the IRA. The PSNI do not want to be associated with partition. Historically, the B-Specials were exclusively Protestant and mostly ex members of the UVF which later became the UDR.

    One wonders how Leo will react to this?

    There's not much Leo can do, but it certainly gives the lie to the Brexiters nonsense that nobody is going to erect a hard border after Brexit and the EU are simply using the Irish border as a negotiating tactic.

    They will deploy as many more as needed, a cheap war on their doorstep to keep the plebs mind off other things as their economy implodes.

    Yep 1000 will become 10000 and it will be the fault of the "obdurate" Irish.
    And just watch the Dublin media and politicians row in behind that.

    The Brits described the Black-and-Tans as a 'police' force. This is just a new version of the same policy.
