I’m sorry but that’s a pathetic argument. International trading law means that if you have different customs arrangements either side of an international boundary a border is required. It’s childish in the extreme to put forward an argument that says, the UK will create the conditions that necessitate a hard border in Ireland (by seeking to abandon the sea border between NI and the rest of the UK) but we’ll force the EU to install it. A hard border is likely to lead to a return of nationalist violence but in your mind that’s fine because we can blame the EU. As I said. Pathetic.
By your argument, we would be insisting on a hard land border between ROI and NI as well, if International Trading law demanded it, but Bojo made it clear that we would not create one and he has made no moves to do so.
He is not forcing the EU to do so either but I suspect they will in the end and therefore who else could possibly be to blame for any nationalist violence and who else could have provoked it? Now that is pathetic but par for the rigid rulebook no flexibility union.
The EU have already provoked the threat of unionist violence by not only insisting on the Irish sea border in the first place but then almost breaking their own agreement within a month.
Break rules but only when it suits them. Pathetic.
