Irish Border Dispute

Updated: Dec 6, 2017

The Common Travel Area which was established in 1923 consists of The Republic of Ireland, The United Kingdom, The Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey.

The Common Travel Area pre-dates the EU and will perhaps out live it.

Under EU Single Market rules, the 4 freedoms must apply, People, Goods, Services and Capitol.

BREXIT around the corner and the UK looking to leave the Single Market whilst maintaining the Common Travel Area sounds ever so complex…

The EU are insistent there must be an answer to the Irish border situation or trade talks cannot commence.

All 3 parties must be satisfied, the EU, Republic of Ireland and the UK.

The UK Government must be firm, but fair, concessions cannot be given, or the Scots Nat’s will endeavour to mirror them and ultimately tear the Union apart.

We cannot allow this to happen.

The UK must stand firm...Any divide and conquer tactics used by the EU should be crushed.

The border can remain exactly as it is? The introduction of US styled Green Cards can solve the issue...

Post Brexit every foreign national could be issued a card that must be produced whilst applying for jobs and travelling.

This would not stop illegal immigration flowing into Northern Ireland from the EU.

However, the culprits would not be able to apply for a job or travel to the mainland.

They would soon divert of their own accord out of necessity.

Not so complex after all?
