    Brexit talks on Irish border to begin in Brussels.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 26 Mar 2018, 11:57 am

    Talks aimed at reaching a deal on what will happen to the Irish border after Brexit will start in Brussels later.

    The UK and EU agree there should be no hard border, but differences remain on how to achieve that goal.

    Monday's negotiations will cover customs, food safety, animal health and the regulation of other goods.

    Further talks will take place next month with EU leaders due to assess progress at their next summit in June.

    Read more on this contentious subject from The BBC News HERE




    With the UK out of the EU, how are they going to treat the Irish Republic - who will be still in the EU - when it comes to the passage of goods, services, and people over the border afterwards ?

    At first glance, to not have a border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic after Brexit would create a precedent that would cause serious problems on every border that the EU has with every other country in Europe.

    I will be very interested to see the solution that they come up with.

    Certainly "interesting", but I would say it is a subject that has no easy answer.

    I am sure this subject is going to blow up in the London parliament.

    I cannot imagine what this deal will look like.

    To ensure that there remains no type of border between Northern Ireland and The Irish Republic a whole set of new laws and rules are going to have to be agreed.

    An almost impossible task.

    Yes, and especially when the rabid right-wing DUP get their oar into the water.

    They are good at saying one thing and wishing another behind closed doors.

    I will be interested to see how the DUP will react to any special deal that will allow the South and the North to remain borderless and fully connected after a solid border has been erected between the mainland of Britain and Europe, after Brexit.

    I cannot see any of the other countries of the UK agreeing on any deal that will give Northern Ireland a better export/import status than the rest. That is what is precisely going to happen if Ireland gets a separate deal on its border with the EU.

    A deal which considers the Irish border a special case would cause all kinds of trouble with the export and import to the rest of the countries in Britain.

    Making them a "special case" would be unworkable.

    A lot of us are still angry because of the Tory bribe to the DUP!
