Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Interesting interview with Jonathan Powell last night, who was a senior member of the team who negotiated the original Good Friday Agreement.

He explained very soberly that are only two alternatives available within the GFA. Either Ulster remains in the Customs Union along with Britain, or there is a customs border in the middle of the Irish Sea.

The resumption of a customs border between Ulster and the Republic is specifically forbidden b an international treaty ratified by the UN.
