This is, astonishingly, not satire.

Someone is clearly taking the piss, Even the Torygraph isn't taking it seriously.
But there has always been a culture of encouraging citizens to inform the authorities of any wrongdoing in the UK, but to set up a special group for border watching is simply daft. The average resident in those coastal areas would very quickly call the police if they saw anything "odd" going on.

Could we end up with a dog eat dog scenario as member countries will do anything to protect their trade policies?


So as I suspected, Brexit will be a dog's dinner all round?

I thought it was very interesting that the UVF letter to Haughey was released under the 30-year rule when the Brexit negotiations are ongoing. Apart from spelling out the collusion between Loyalists and the British security forces and the plot to assassinate Charles Haughey, it also spells out the type of actions that they were plotting in order to undermine the Irish economy, particularly the agriculture base.

I presume it was released (and not 'mislaid'/shredded) for the simple reason that the Irish Government are well aware of the threat the country faces as Britain goes down the Brexit road. It would solve a lot of problems for the British if Ireland also exited the EU.

It would also solve a lot of problems for the EU if Ireland left as well, especially when you consider the huge volume of IE-UK trade, relive to IE-EU trade.

It does when you consider that a lot of Irish thinking is closer to Boston than Berlin.

We joined the EU/EEC to stop being so interdependent on Britain, why on earth would we follow them out of one of the biggest trade areas in the world?
