None of the border issue is really anything to do with Brexit what so ever for us here, its about an all Ireland
Exactly Missy and the back stop only comes into force anyway if a trade deal can't be negotiated within the 21 month transition period which begs the question has the EU so little faith in being able to negotiate a deal in that time that it needs an insurance in the form of a backstop.
As we already 'trade' with the EU, reaching an agreement in 21 months really should not be that difficult.
It is all 'waffle' designed to demonstrate to anyone who dares to contemplate leaving the EU that leaving will be made as difficult as possible.
