Brexit and the border… May 30, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
…what about this? From the IT this morning:
Border controls between the island of Ireland and Britain are inevitable if there is a Brexit, according to official sources on both sides of the Irish Sea.
A strict new regime for travel between the two islands is already under consideration if the UK votes next month to leave the European Union.
So… rather than beefing up the border on this island in the event of Brexit…
The impossibility of sealing the 500km border between Northern Ireland and the Republic has put the focus on new travel arrangements.
Such a move would mean British citizens travelling from Northern Ireland would be subject to customs and border controls at air and ferry ports in Britain.
…let’s just redraw it around the island! Sounds like someone is flying a particularly unpalatable kite (for some), presumably to make a point… Though if correct, and more than a kite, what does that tell us about sovereignty, etc..?
