UK proposes customs posts on both sides of border in bid to replace backstop

https://www.rte.ie/news/brexit/2019/0930/1079253-border/

Told you so. Another air-head proposal. I can't see it happening. Besides, there's no space off the motorway, not within 5-10 miles of the border.

It's basically breaking the Good Friday Agreement. I'm sure Nancy Pelosi will not be amused.

So, there will be a DMZ along the border, where everything goes?

It doesn't matter, as soon as the media says that Westminster has violated the GFA, it'll be a signal for the "hard men" to dig up their Semtex and start blowing things and people up. We're being held hostage by the terrorists, literally.

The Belfast Agreement. I'd rather ask who was the idiot who wrote it - or signed, to be more precise.

They ALL signed up to it. 
Are you a revisionist?
