    I think one of the problems is that the UK wants to participate in the EU market place without restrictions, but doesn't want to belong to the EU.

    They want their cake and eat it too.

    So Ireland will probably become a huge black market.

    At least that's what the politicians seem to want. What do the people want?

    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Basically the same. They were promised many mutually exclusive versions of Brexit, most of which were not in the politicians power to promise (eg all of the benefits of the single market with none of the responsibilities). There is no one brexit deal which will make them happy.

    But then producing a yes/no vote defending the status quo in a post crash economy was always going to result in a kicking.

    Well... Europe has had its' history with walls. Nothing to be proud of. Nothing to repeat. I hope what I am saying means the answer is "no".

    The EU has built 1,000 km of border walls since the fall of the Berlin Wall. News coverage is mostly negative, but the US is far from alone in desiring to limit the flow of illegal border crossings with walls.
