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

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

I really, really, doubt Boris and the rest of the Tories give two goddamns about the GFA, as such.  If they feel it is in their interest to break it, they will.  If they feel it is in their interest to keep it, they.

breaking international treaties like that has consequences. It's one thing to allow A50 to lapse, it's entirely another to bugger with a peace treaty at the UN.

Especially when Congress have indicated they will not tolerate any fucking about of Ireland and te GFA by the UK. If Boris wants a trade deal with the US, he's got to be nice wto dublin.

But right now, the brexiteers are in full "Britannia waives the rules, you never have to say you're sorry when you're English" mode and Boris is burning bridges as fast as he can strike the matches

Of course it has consequences.  

But we deal with the Real World, in the Real World.

Boris?  Not so much.
