Very true Fishy, and let's hope that when Ireland is United ( not if but when ) that principle carries through  ::)

Based on the attitude to Brexit, I very much doubt that.  :)

"Sajid Javid: Government should pay 'hundreds of millions' for Irish border solution"

"Tory leadership hopeful Sajid Javid has said the Government should pay "hundreds of millions of euros" to solve the Irish border issue and break the Brexit deadlock."

"The Home Secretary told the Mail On Sunday he believes a technological solution to the problem can be found and Britain has a "moral and economic duty" to cover the cost."

"Preventing a hard border on the island of Ireland has long been a major stumbling block in the Brexit negotiations, with the EU proposing the controversial backstop to avoid such a scenario."

"The backstop is an insurance mechanism in the Withdrawal Agreement that would keep the UK in the EU customs union and Northern Ireland in large parts of the single market."

"It would come in to force in the event that the UK and the EU fail to agree a post-Brexit trading relationship or if a technological solution cannot be found to keep the border frictionless."

Boris is proposing reducing tax for those earning above £50 thousand per year if he is elected as PM by the Tories.
To help pay for the tax cuts for the wealthier he says he will increase national insurance contributions for the lower paid.
It is highly unlikely his clueless proposal would get through the present parliament; like Trump's wall it is a lot of nonsense designed solely to get selected.
i suspect few contributing to the Forum earn over £50 grand a year.

"Brexit: No-deal border checks 'will be needed' "

"The Republic of Ireland would have to build border inspection posts if it wanted to continue importing food from Northern Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit, a report has concluded."



"The study was commissioned by NI's Department for the Economy."

"The EU has strict rules for checking imports of animals and food products at its borders."

"Those products must come through inspection posts in the immediate vicinity of the point of entry."

"Ireland currently has border inspection posts (BIPS) at Dublin Airport Port, Dublin Port and Shannon Airport."    etcetera,...

Labour chinned, again.  ::)

Yes indeed. Its almost impossible to find out what Labours position on Brexit actually is. First you have Tom Watson saying something, only to be contradicted by the millionaire Starmer, only to be contradicted by Thornbury. Meantime wee Corby says nothing.
Does anyone actually know Labours official position on Brexit ? Answers on a postcard please.  :)

Britain, or rather the individual British consumers, will be paying a lot more if the U.K. has to start paying import duties to European suppliers.

"UK official in charge of Brexit border plans resigns"

"Karen Wheeler’s resignation stokes fears the UK will not be ready for a no-deal Brexit by October"


Quote,...

The government official in charge of delivering “frictionless” Brexit border arrangements, including emergency plans for Dover and Ireland in the event of no deal, has quit just two years into her job.

Karen Wheeler, director general of Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs Brexit border delivery group, was the lead official coordinating a cross-Whitehall response involving police, ports, customs and freight interests.

Her departure is being seen as a blow to the government and increasing the risk that the UK will not be as prepared for a possible no deal on 31 October.

Nothing is happening in Whitehall now. Lots of people have been stood down on Brexit no-deal preparations and there is a general risk that people are just going to see this hiatus as an opportunity to clear off and go into the private sector,” said a source who knows Wheeler.      etcetera,...

Unionism can keep its head in the sand.
This is the reality....
Brexit or demographics... Tick tock.
Better to get a deal in Stormont and a shared future.
