    Coincidently, Bloomberg had this today..........

    Balkan Lesson | The Irish border question is one of thorniest in the Brexit talks: how to avoid a hard international border carving up the island of Ireland. The answer may lie in the Balkans, where the EU has allowed for exceptions so that locals and small cargoes can travel freely across the bloc’s border.

    Balkan solution? Could work, but.... what is the likely SF reaction to random checks? Suppose Slab Murphy or his pals are stopped?

    IMO, the idea that brexit is not implemented in NI is better, however, the reaction of the DUP is likely to be worse than SF.

    Ho-hum

    impossible seems fairly final

    A Revenue Commissioners report has declared that an open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic will be impossible from a customs perspective in the wake of Brexit.

    According to RTE News, who said they have seen the unpublished internal report, Ireland's customs infrastructure - and tens of thousands of companies who trade with the UK - will be severely impacted as Britain leaves the EU.

    RTE says the Revenue were told to stop evaluating the effects, the EU would do it...., it s a UK problem.

    OTOH, the reports of the report is that it is old, the figures are out of date. A fishing expedition for more staff?

    It all depends on whether there will be any money to be collected, the fudge will make that unlikely.

    The EU summit end of next week will be the crunch, there will be the Member States who want to move on, some sort of "solution" to the "Irish question" may have to be agreed. Kicking can......
