“But an EU official familiar with the bloc's preparations for a no-deal Brexit said: "In a no-deal scenario, Ireland would have to choose between setting up a physical border with Northern Ireland and de facto leaving the single market. If there is no physical border, the customs checks would have to take place on all goods coming from Ireland."

Or, back in the real world where leaver fantasies crumble, the thing we warned you about from the start is a very real likelihood.

Project reality.

The prussians were late because they were fighting a two day battle against Napoleon and there were more german speaking soldiers in Wellingtons arny than english speaking...

err no, it was always going to be like that in my predictions.

I suspect Ireland might have to come out the EU if it likes it or not.

I note with satisfaction that the market in London is up this morning. A quick call to Wilton’s elicited the information that there are no tables free for lunch today. The possibility of a proper, as promised Brexit and the decrease in popularity of Commie Corbyn are paying dividends. One should not though, overlook the devil in the dovetails. John McDonnell is not the quiet man he would have the Wilton Wallahs believe.

The put upon, do as they're told paddies mindset so beloved of the British right wing is about to receive a hefty kick in the arse. If you think the Irish are quitting the EU for us, then I have a bridge you might be interested in buying. Ireland is in love with the EU, every poll consistently shows it. Brexit is a cross party issue for them, do some research before lobbing your next bowl of word salad around.

The EU would sacrifice Eire in a leching Leprechaun’s leer if it thought the fortunes of the empire would be served by such an act of betrayal.

Righto. And two years of protracted negotiations over the border fully supports that view in Cavortingcheetah land does it? Do tell us more.

I agree the Irish do love the EU and everything its stands for at the moment.

They just might not have an choice in the matter. Its nothing to do with doing it for the UK. Because of UK leaving then yes.

It will be done kicking and screaming, swearing insulting people every other sentence like only a remainer who isn't getting their own way can do.

Its only being used as an excuse to hold the UK in the CU and under ECJ jurisdiction, once its failed to produce the wanted effect for the EU then it will be dumped as a topic and the Irish shat on.

You insist that the UK should leave the EU because 52% of the electorate voted to, because that's democracy.
But you think that Ireland must leave the EU even though 92% want to stay.

That's democracy too is it?

I remember you getting all upset once when I asked you to evidence some outlandish claim or other. Guess I'd better not do that again eh, Pavel?

It was ignored because it doesn't matter what is said it will just end up with the usual claims of its not valid then the standard line in insults.

Might as well just wait 42 days and see if I am right or wrong.

ThorMos I'm sure there are history revisionistas on all sides especially on the side of those that won! The first casualty in war is the truth etc

This article from the Broken Biscuit Company seems quite even handed: Three Commanders

This site enlightened me on why there were so many German speakers in Wellingtons' army and the lengths that Wellington had to go to in his quest for troops including hiring 15,000 men from the King of Sardinia at £11 2s / year / man!

And boom, there it is,as sure as day follows night, the old one two - you insulted me (didn't happen but whatever) and wait & see, tick tock.

Why is it the case that you run to the same place without fail, every single time you are challenged? Why is it you can't even once, defend your own assertion? You wilt like a sunflower time after time, disappear for a bit then return with the same off brand, poundshop think pieces. I'll tell you why, since you never will, because they're rubbish that's why. They are, one after the other, pure confections dreamt up in your head purely to illustrate a non existent but longed for utopia that is never coming but oh how you wish it would.

In many ways, you are the perfect Brexit supporter, like Geoff Boycott, slogging away at the crease, refusing to take any notice of the game around him until in the end, someone had to run him out on purpose to save the team, completely devoid of any awareness of the world around him, of how it actually works, of actual events, of where power lies, of basic concepts like divide & conquer or might is right.

Why on earth should they do that and sacrifice all the benefits they get from being an EU member? If push comes to shove, there will be a hard border and that's that. We are not talking about a Trump-style wall after all. I will make life more difficult than at the moment, but it would not be the end of the world for the Republic. Mabye, given all the "the EU needs the UK more than the UK needs the EU" phantasiies rolled out here, it would be useful in this context who needs whom more - N.I the RoI or the RoI N.I....
