I think Merkel pulled a blinder; "tell us what you want instead of the Ireland backstop and we'll think about it after all it's half* your island with your half being the bit that's causing the problems, oh within 30 days too"

(*ish)

Tomorrow PMBJ will get "by the way you owe us £39bn whatever" from Macron

time for the drunk man outside the nightclub to sober up?....

PMBJ's looking somewhat miffed.....the very first press conference ( before any meeting even takes place ) and Macron's already telling him to do one.

Both the BBC & Sky News said pretty much the same thing....that he was reading from his script without really listening to what Macron was saying, and that what he did say was aimed more at the pro-Leavers and a potential forthcoming GE.

i think what he is trying to do is drag the leavers to his side as well as some middle grounders with the hope of a deal. get a GE, get a majority without the DUP, agree to a border in the sea. NI stays in the customs union, EU agree to talk about the future relationship. no backstop, boom brexit.

Nice bit of weasle-wording by PMBJ, though, in saying that 'under no circumstances will the UK put up checks and controls on the Irish border'.
No mention of not doing so a few miles from the actual border, then :whistle:

there were some clowns on the radio this morning saying they didn't mind if the border was open, completely ignoring the fact that if people cross from RoI into NI there is then no passport checks before they get into the rest of the UK.

funny how "taking control of our borders" all of a sudden means "taking control of our borders, apart from the only actual border between the UK and EU"

I understand that there is already a means of monitoring the free movement that occurs between both Ireland and NI and the UK either by sea or air. It probably involves people without UK or Irish nationality making one way journeys. And because Ireland isn't in Schengen there is no passport free movement from French ports or any non UK airports that fly into the Republic.

A couple of years ago there was a big hoo har about extra checks coming into Schengen that was causing big delays at some continental airports. It was pointed out that it also affected flights from Ireland as they had to queue up with all the Brits in the same way. Once they start treating us as a Third Country it's been predicted that those checks will take even longer, will they open Ireland only passport queues? I noticed dozens of new e-passport gates ready to go at Palma de Mallorca in March so they appear to be gearing up for something. I can't see the huge immigration halls you see in US airports for only a couple of countries. Nor can I see anyone wanting 5 hour delays for UK passengers (not least the package tour firms who have to get the passengers out of the airport and onto a coach) which were postulated.

Nobody's actually said how after Brexit the UK is going to discriminate between EU citizens after free movement ends, as to whether they are coming here on business, holiday or actually live here (or claim to)

I flew to Dublin yesterday and had to show a passport to gain entry into Ireland.

On my return I didn’t need to show any identification to get back into Manchester, we arrived in the baggage hall as per an internal flight.

The U.K. and Ireland have agreement called the Common Travel Area with Ireland, the Irish currently do checks on U.K. travellers, the U.K. don’t bother. This Agreement supersedes our membership of the EU.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Travel_Area

Not to be confused with the Common Transit Convention that allows free passage of goods between states until the final destination where any duties or customs are paid. Which we have signed up to staying in , Deal, No Deal or Remain. Meaning unhindered passage of goods from/to Ireland through the U.K. from/to Europe if needed.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-t ... ter-brexit

https://www.charteredaccountants.ie/New ... -procedure

UK to become a party to the convention
The UK announced on 17 December 2018 that it will become a party to the Common Transit Convention in its own right regardless of what Brexit deal is reached.

You actually had to go through passport control rather than just showing it at the UK boarding gate? that's odd because you don't need a passport to travel to Ireland unless you go on Ryanair

Through passport control at Dublin airport. I failed at the i- passport gate and had to show it to the passport officer who scanned it. Proper passport check.

That wiki article says
Since 1997, the Irish government has imposed systematic identity checks on air passengers coming from the United Kingdom and selective checks on sea passengers, and occasional checks on land crossings.


Edit - I suppose on reading it, I could have shown my driving licence to the passport person at Dublin as it should be an ID Check rather than a passport check.

The only new agreement listed since that was first published several months or more ago is the ROK.
To be fair, we do currently export about £2bn more to them than we import ( something like £7.8bn Vs £5.2bn ) although a couple of years ago it was pretty level-pegging.

Wonder how that'll change in the event of 'no-deal' and us defaulting to the basic WTO rules?

We won’t be trading on WTO rules with South Korea in the event of No Deal.

Never said we would.
The trade differential changed in a large part due to ROK manufacturers set up manufacturing plants in mainland Europe.
From what I can gather, these aren't included in the import totals from the ROK.
In the event of WTO, it could lead to Hyundai/Kia exporting those models from Korea instead of Europe to the UK.

Boris Johnson on no deal...

26th June - it is a a million to one chance
25th August - it is now touch and go

Proof positive that this "dwad" hasn’t got a clue or a plan.

See....that's just the sort of Remainiac propaganda which any true blue-blooded Brexiteer objects to !!!!!!!!

OF COURSE
Saint BoJo's got a plan, and what a brilliant plan it is...……

It's to blame those pesky Remoaners & EU negotiators for every single failure.

Brilliant and extremely cunning, isn't it.
:lol:

I'm surprised the pro-Leave supporters haven't sussed why Trump speaks so highly of him....it's because in PMBJ he's actually found someone less statesmanlike than he is.

Dont see the point with the whole thing - when was it decided that being part of Europe was not working, remember the old saying - "If it aint broke - dont fix it".

Ok if leaving was going to benefit every single one of us living here and without any negative concequences, then fine, but as it Clearly will not, then just dont do it.
