With the long winded arguments that are going on at the moment concerning Brexit, and the so called divorce. This is a question that is on my mind at the moment.

There's talk of a hard border and the GFA being in danger.While others say not to worry. That they'll be no hard border and life will go on as usual.

Remainers are probably hoping that Brexit won't happen,and the UK will be begging to be let back in.That they'll be good children and promise not to upset Mummy and Daddy EU again.

Brexiteers are hoping that Brexit will happen and Britain will trade with whoever they please and regain control of their borders.

If so will the UK split and will Ireland be united,with independence for England ,Scotland and Wales.

Or will it make no difference and everything remain much the same.So over to you cast your vote,you know you wanna.😊😈

No difference.

It's Nordie politics we're talking about.
It's all about the North being in or out of the UK.
The UK being in or out of the EU is utterly irrelevant.

Probably one of the most crafty sentences ever written.

(1)It is hereby declared that, notwithstanding that the Republic of Ireland is not part of His Majesty’s dominions, the Republic of Ireland is not a foreign country for the purposes of any law in force in any part of the United Kingdom or in any colony, protectorate or United Kingdom trust territory, whether by virtue of a rule of law or of an Act of Parliament or any other enactment or instrument whatsoever, whether passed or made before or after the passing of this Act, and references in any Act of Parliament, other enactment or instrument whatsoever, whether passed or made before or after the passing of this Act, to foreigners, aliens, foreign countries, and foreign or foreign-built ships or aircraft shall be construed accordingly.

The kite [has] been flown re rejoining the commonwealth.

Are Sinn Fein touting the repeal of our own Republic of Ireland Act 1948 for this new united Ireland they envisage?

All those people with top cushy gravy train jobs in the EU are deeply concerned,I think, after all the UK leaving could well spell the end of the EU.

No it is less likely than it was 20 years ago. Catholic population is larger but more British, the rates of Irishness have declined while partition identities have grown. The entire culture is now British, Integrated education raises children as Brits, recruitment for the crown forces in Catholic schools and Catholics supporting the 6 counties soccer team all things which would once have been unthinkable.

That's an interesting development.

That 'sentence' is one of the major spanners in the works for Brexit imo.

It appears all sides would rather not acknowledge its existence publically.
Its just that I like plain speaking bureaucratic bull is not liked. That's why I'm delighted that the EU is dying.The EU thrives on long winded nonsense as did the bureaucracies of the old empires.

I think an attempt to sabotage any deals between Britain and America is what's occurring now,by fanatical remainers.I do think that Britain leaving the EU will lead to the break up of the UK and an united Ireland.

I think an independent England will benefit the most in the long run.
