Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If May hadn't had a fit of over-confidence and called an election in which she lost her working majority, I'm quite sure Ulster would already have been sold down the river. The conservatives care deeply about the union, except when it gets in the way of something they want. Believe me, they'd sell their grannies for sixpence if they thought it would help their political agenda, Ulster is absolutely disposable.

As it voted heavily to remain in the EU, it would have been a democratic convenience to simply place the EU border down the Irish sea and then carry on regardless. It would certainly have made negotiations a helluva lot easier.

But Theresa had her fit and finds herself tied to the medieval anchor of the DUP, whose only response to any idea of change is no. So, ther she sits, absolutely stuck

keep to the Fen Causeway
