When will the BBC report what we’ve been reporting for years?

Brexit Facts4EU.org Summary

Border Between Northern Ireland & The Republic

What the heads of Irish Customs said :-

“We have absolutely no plans for anything along the Border at this stage”

“There would not be customs stops on the Border such as applied until 1992 [before the Good Friday Agreement] as described by the Deputy.”

  • No hard border required, say Irish Customs
  • No customs posts on the border
  • Customs to be handled electronically, as largely done at present, and this is now EU policy
  • Only 2% of goods are currently checked and this won’t change
  • Irish goods can continue to pass through UK to continent using ‘common transit arrangement’
  • EU prevents negotiations or discussions taking place between the two sides who can solve the issue

Irish Customs testimony – no ‘Backstop’ required

Brexit Facts4EU.Org presents Irish Customs testimony – no ‘Backstop’ required

The following testimonies were given by the senior members of the Irish Revenue and Customs in 2017 and by the Taoiseach's Brexit adviser, to a Committee of the Irish Parliament. They assumed that the UK would be OUT of the Single Market, and OUT of the Customs Union.

The three people questioned were Nial Cody, Chairman of the Board of the Irish Revenue Commissioners, Liam Irwin, then Revenue Commissioner, and John Callinan, Head of Economic, International and Northern Ireland Division, Department of the Taoiseach.

They were questioned one week apart, and we have combined their testimonies under the various headings relevant to the whole N.I. border question.

IMPORTANT : These are the IRISH customs officials, giving testimony to the IRISH parliament.

The Irish border non-issue

This nonsense must stop now

     

The border between Northern Ireland and the Republic is a non issue. It is being used by the EU and by Remainer politicians purely as a political device to frustrate Brexit. It is also being used by the anti-British Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland for his own political ends.

Only one anti-Brexit, anti-democracy amendment was passed last night in the Commons. It was Dame Caroline Spelman’s, which “rejects the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement and a Framework for the Future Relationship”.

17 of the most extreme anti-Brexit Europhiles on the Conservative benches supported this amendment. Although not legally-binding, it shows the voting intentions of MPs in the event of the default ‘Go WTO’ World Trade Brexit on 29 March.
