Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
The EU is not bound by the GFA. Ireland is. The choice to IE is to have the border between them and NI or between them and the Rest of EU. Dilemma (another 1 of thousands).

So the NI/IE border will be manned by EU nationals from other Member States. Dilemma solved (but creates four more)
Why bring the EU into this discussion? The GFA is very much between the UK and Ireland. The GFA precludes any physical border or checks.

You also seem to forget that all Northern Irish citizens will continue to be EU citizens by birth (or better said, may choose to be, given that all may take Irish Passports) due to the GFA, so you are effectively penning in a group of EU citizens behind a border to the EU which they are a citizen of, which you promised them they would never have.

It's a mess.
