Just a thought about Max Fac…

This could be a country lane anywhere in the UK.   Nothing out of the ordinary and really nothing to see.   Unfortunately, come the 30th March next year this will be the border between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the European Union.

Same as this.

And this.

Everytime I hear a Brexiteer talking about a no deal they always try to reassure people that all we are doing is reverting to our trading position before we entered the EU – back then it was called the Common Market.   However, in 1973 these lanes would have been blocked on the Northern Ireland side and there would have been army patrols along the whole of the border.   Also in 1973 253 people were killed as a result of this border being in existence oh and the patrols weren’t that effective!

So next time you hear someone banging on about no deal Brexit just spare a thought for the Irish on both sides of the border between the European Union and Great Britain and then ask how a no deal brexit will deal with this border?
