Looks like the Irish government have been told to pull back on the demands they were told to make regarding Brexit.
Yesterday the Independent were given this story to publish.

But the twitter headline was

Stark Brexit warning: Be under no illusion about how bad no deal will be for Ireland
Stark Brexit warning: No deal will mean checks on animals and goods crossing borders, says Tánaiste - Independent.ie


Today it's this one.

Higher taxes for online shoppers in hard Brexit - Independent.ie


So we will get lots of these stories to condition people that Varadkar and the other puppets pretending to be negotiating the best possible deal had no other choice but to give concessions to what they wanted the save us all.

That's right.
Up to now the eurofanatics have tried to spread the idea that only the British will suffer. They have even propounded the absurd notion that the British will impose a hard border. Garbage--it will be the EU, thru their Irish vassals.

The reality is that if the Irish govt doesn't see sense, everyone on this island will suffer. In countless ways.

Would a hard Brexit reduce wind farm roll out? Like if people are poor and forced to pay twice the normal price for electricity due to
wind energy, will they reject it and will they reject the green carbon tax at election time?

Expect electricity prices to increase at least 4 fold over the next 20 years. Once more people are heating their houses and driving around with it.

Irish govt insistence on a backstop to prevent a hard border is leading us to just that. Better to grin and bear a border than to have a border plus economic disaster thrust upon us.
As for the EU, the border issue is a useful negotiating tool, nothing else.
