The Northern Ireland issue was raised up into a serious problem by the E.u in the hope that the British Government would agree that it was another big stumbling block after they [GB Gov] had first agreed to all of the money that the E.u wanted
and committed to before moving onto their second grab, Northern Ireland.
The British government saw the E.u raised problem despite the fact that The Good Friday [Belfast] Agreement stipulated that along with peace between the IRA and
Loyalist Unionist Northern Irish & Britain, there would be no hard border between Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland and that in the main the UK was aligned with E.u policies and regulation with regard to goods and services and is in trading
and cultural terms very similar. Never the less the British government bit down on the problem.
Theresa May, having asked the E.u at a meeting with Donald Tusk, to create a Brexit-Divorce/trade deal [the first stage of which was the
Chequers agreement] that she could then sell to Parliament. She did not oppose the E.u’s position on Northern Ireland. She just wanted to tread carefully and slowly to move the E.u argument forward beyond opposition.
May’s fairly obvious [to everyone] Brexit position was an E.u Brexit position. She attempted to silently forget about the E.u fishing out fish in British water until the roar of anger and opposition made her comment that she was confused by the anger.
Apparently fish represented next to no part of British GDP. [Any goldmine that does not charge for mining gold by the ounce or ton will not amount to very much money.]
Theresa May [the remainer] became more unacceptable than the resulting
document of the Chequers agreement. Theresa had to go. [How it was allowed for a person to stand for leader after opposing a referendum result is another example of the lack of political regulations that cause chaos and allow too much freedom for politicians
to do what they like.]
Boris Johnson then had the chance to restart Brexit. [After shouting in Chequers at Theresa May’s Chequers agreement as “A Crock of Shit!”] Boris picked up the post Chequers agreement and
instead of heading to the shredder, he put it on his desk and proceeded to remove a detail regarding the most cheeky and punitive consequence of defaulting and claimed success.
