“The British Government and the DUP are sticking their heads in the sand with unfounded talk of a ‘frictionless’ border in Ireland as a result of Brexit.

“This fantasy technology does not exist and so it cannot prevent an imposed border in Ireland in the context of Brexit.

“The only solution to Brexit is Designated Special Status for the north of Ireland within the EU.”
