Going to Ikea just to see furniture in kit… puzzles me. If you like to see what a real politician is, have a look to Manuel Valls personal file. Born in Spain, probably his father knew Franco. Went to France, brilliant guy -I mean Manuel…-, mayor of a great town, french PM, wanted to be president for the left side déculotté aux présidentielles wanted to be Barcelona mayor for the left sidedéculotté aux élections and now protesting at Madrid for the right side. I wonder when someone will buy a decent pair of trousers to this half naked SoB?

Well perhaps after brexit Ikea will retreat from the ‘Independent states of the UK’ or at least start serving proper grub......

So, soft brexit now on the cards?

I received a pm from a member who voted remain and went to great pains to tell me that the Irish government was not at fault but that the UK as a whole is wrong to permit this to happen.

I respect the peron's position and indeed even understand it to an extent but, and this is a big but. The GF agreement is quite clear that there should be no hard border between North and South, so I do find it very odd that the Irish Government is pushing so hard to create one.

As to a soft Brexit? Life will be worse than being in.

Right in line with the guy in Holland who was well known as anti-muslim.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...become-muslim/

It's one thing to decide that whatever evidence one might have heard on a subject is wrong and to decide to publicise one's new understanding but quite a different level of thought must be necessary to completely convert one's views and abandon almost everything that one's life has been about. And yet such 'flexibility' seems to be a trait of those who seek power, though perhaps not quite so obviously as with this apparent example.

You should be worried EB, the song contest is just the thin edge of the wedge, soon you will be unable to cross the Irish Backstop Border, use proper light bulbs, be ruled by unelected busy bodies, and not allowed back in to the UK.

Make a run for Papua New Guinea while you can.

Agreed, although there are aspects of the EU that would probably qualify it for religious status ...

Not sure where you are getting your information Peter but the Irish Govt are absolutely not pushing for a hard border. As someone who lived through the bloody war (and that is what it was, not the soft ‘troubles’ word bandied around, it was a war with horrific consequences on both sides) believe me, no-one wants that horror back again and a border will create it. The UK chose to leave, nothing to do with us. The Irish govt have, must and are elected to protect the interests of the republic. And as a nation, the most recent poll shows 92% here want to stay in the EU, a number which has risen steadily in the last 10 yrs. We are not anti uk we are just trying to fight like hell to protect ourselves.

Interesting.

What has changed in the past decade or so since the earlier vote to leave the EU and the subsequent re-vote to reverse that position when the EU objected?

But the UK as a whole voted to leave. What is happening is that certain parties are suggesting that because the UK wants to leave it is responsible for creating a hard border. As we know such a thing is unnecessary. Even if there's a hard Brexit borders won't be shut to UK or UK bound goods.

As reported the current regime, in terms of customs checks etc. On goods will remain.

The Irish backstop is a failed attempt to circumvent the will of the UK. If it had a break clause there would be no issue. But without a break clause the UK government cannot honour the referendum because it would be locked into the EU without any say in what goes on. Hence it is not the UK creating the problem but the EU.
