Attacks on ports? November 21, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Does this sound at all plausible?

Len McCluskey, general secretary of Unite, described the plan to create a customs and regulatory border in the Irish Sea to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland as “unbelievably dangerous”.
“Have we got to wait for people to be blown up and killed? Whether these ports are in Stranraer or Pembroke or in Holyhead, or the areas in Northern Ireland where there are going to be checks?” he said.
“Do the media not understand that loyalist paramilitary groups are meeting almost on a daily basis in Northern Ireland? It is incredibly reckless and dangerous.”

Note that all those ports would be in… the UK! Gloomy thought, I suspect that Loyalists would no more attack installations like those listed than fly. Now, whether they’d think it clever to disrupt cross Irish border links is a different matter. But they might not be alone in that which might give them pause for thought.

McCluskey is throwing about a lot of alarmist stuff but to what effect?
