What a train wreck of an interview...

https://www.thepoke.co.uk/2022/05/17/this-c4-news-takedown-of-boris-johnson-over-northern-ireland-is-simply-magnificent/

Boris basically admits he didn't know what he was signing up to, nor that he thought it would actually be implemented. What an incompetent clown... :rolleyes:

Meanwhile, the predictable climbdown for the moment, yet again...

https://theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/may/16/plan-to-scrap-parts-of-northern-ireland-protocol-is-only-an-insurance-policy-says-boris-johnson

It's getting tedious now.

Not only Boris to blame. All those who voted for Brexit without knowing the details or really worrying about them. In the end we saw here with Wolfie just desperate for any Brexit to be pushed through to take back control

Now we are being warned of a trade war, as if we didn’t warn them B)

Most of them fail to grasp the issue, so Boris and his gang (including the ever-more ridiculous Jack Frost) just play the jingoism card to distract attention from the fact they signed an appalling trade deal and shafted Northern Ireland along the way. Amazing that some still fall for the nonsense, but plenty still believe in pixies and fairies as well... LOL

Simple fact is that two different uncontrolled customs zones don't overlap anywhere else in the world. You seriously have to wonder who is advising the UK government and the quality of that advice.

NI Ireland isnt in the eu. I said this before at the time of the glorious result to leave the Brussels mafia , ergo that to satisfy the GFA they had to leave the borders open regardless. Dodgy stuff has been going across the border for years but you only seem to be be worried about it now. Typical remainer pro eu luvvie claptrap , which we are used to from you.

Northern Ireland is in the EU Single Market and not in the UK Internal Market however much the Boris and the Brexit nut jobs imagine otherwise.

Regardless of what went on in the past, smuggling is illegal and it doesn't mean you open a legal backdoor into another customs territory (in either direction). And that you can only resort to silly jibes just means that you're another one like Boris who doesn't understand how the world actually works.

1.5% above the Eurozone, so another benefit of Brexit.

No it’s not. Britain never was in the Eurozone. If we were still in the EU we still wouldn’t be in the Eurozone.  We kept out of it from day one for good reason. Inflation in Europe varies by around 10% between lowest and highest so one snapshot of the average is rather meaningless unless you are going to advance the argument that we should be in the Euro and if we were we would have had significantly lower inflation over the years.

As predicted...

A trade war with the EU will only make things even worse. Meanwhile not looking good for a US trade deal either... :rolleyes:

Regrettably many did not think deep enough, and some not at all
