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

From the New European

''The government plan proposes “green and red channels”, where goods travelling from the UK to Northern Ireland are treated differently to those that move onto the single market. But really, this arrangement is a reheated version of May’s deal on Northern Ireland. What was called a “surrender deal” at the time has now been repackaged by Brexiters as a British victory.

And yet – in 2021, the European Commission itself proposed a plan to differentiate between goods travelling to Northern Ireland and the single market. ''

in the meantime, Suella Bravermann and others for the blessed ERG threatening to resign over this. Good riddance!
Lord Randolph Churchill once said that Ireland would dominate British politics for a hundred years, looks like he was off by a couple of hundred years!

None of these people have the same objective, so the chance of any proposal finding favour with them is very unlikely. The DUP has no interest whatsoever in solving the problem. Their sole objective it to use any means possible to defeat the GFA, if BREXIT can do it for them they will take it. To accept any solution means going in to parliament with an SF First Minister and it is hard to see that happening any time soon.
