UK to formulate Irish border proposals 'in a few days': Hunt

The Irish government from the start recognised that brexit would endanger the Good Friday Agreement and have been trying to negotiate with the british government since the vote took place.

 

They want to avoid a return to the events of the past and have been trying to avoid a “hard” border. 

 

They have never ever wanted an external border and are not trying to impose one now. 

Maybe you should call the Irish prime Minister as he is saying differently.

 

"Ireland's prime minister said on Friday his government would find it very difficult to avoid imposing a hard border on Northern Ireland if Britain crashes out of the European Union without an exit agreement."

because its a different country? 

I was talking about during the troubles. The UK and ROI were both members of the EEC and the CTA which took away the need for a hard border. 

 

Post brexit, both the UK and ROI will both still be CTA members, which allows free movement between both jurisdictions.

Someone tell me why the Irish government didn't put a border up when the IRA were killing Protestants (and Others) for years during the 1970s-1990s. Funny how it was important then but it is now!

Because since around 400 AD there's been no-one here with the skills or organisation good enough to get it done.

See below.

Im afraid that’s a decision the UK has to make alone itself, and the EU doesn’t have a say in it at all, even if you’re running away from making a call until last minute. Blaming someone else for your lack of leadership is pretty pathetic. You wanted to take control but now you can’t handle it; you wanted to be “sovereign” but now you can’t stand on your own feet

Gordon Ramsey will put names on the crust for advanced orders...

If you would have served in NI you would know that statement is absolute drivel and rubbish.

Racketeering, Gun smuggling, Kidnap, Murder just to name a few.

Was there an IRA contingent from Ireland ?
