In the event of no-deal, Britain will be worse off than us, say the Irish nation leaders of less than 5 million good people. I'd be bricking it if I were in their shoes, after their attempts to find other ways to channel their goods ended in failure. They would need to spend billions more if they were forced to break ties with the UK, due to intransigence. The hard border is already there, working remotely, in situ, without the EU needing to do much more that they already have installed. It is a farce, getting huffy and menacing when David Davis clearly laid bare the exaggerations being spouted.
With friends and neighbours like these, who needs enemies?
