A Modest Proposal: Avoiding a Deadlock on the Irish border in the Brexit talks
by Professor S. Peers
There is an apparent risk that the negotiations on the Brexit withdrawal agreement could break down over forthcoming proposals to address the Irish border controls issue. It is unfortunate that the UK government has not tabled its own treaty text or more advanced proposals for customs facilitation away from the borders. And it is tragic that the British public is burdened, in the form of their current Foreign Secretary, with one of the most incompetent politicians in British history – unable to grasp the obvious differences between levying a congestion charge at the border of London boroughs and the vastly more complex task of avoiding border checks between the UK and Ireland.
