@red_rose_wizz It’s very easy to demonstrate how wrong you are.
Explain why there is a hard border between say Switzerland and France.
Switzerland is not part of the Customs Union or EU VAT Regime (which are also separate from the Single Market). That being the case then both sides have to build and staff a hard border on each side of the divide.
Let’s leave individual’s movements aside for now… though everyone is checked/asked questions at Customs.
For commercial traffic, every one requires a customs declaration, multiple forms and stamps by the tax authorities prior to goods cross the tax border.
Note also that between those two countries they have FULL regulatory alignment for goods… there are no tariffs… which would not be the case between NI and Ireland.
On the Swiss-French border… it is a hard border purely for the VAT.
To remove the need for a ‘hard’ border… you need both full regulatory alignment, the same VAT regime and no tariffs.
Unless some other Deal is agreed… similar to the May Deal then there will have to be a hard border erected. If they don’t do it immediately then they will have to do it later else both UK and Ireland will face court cases.
People like you spread blatant lies. You simply don’t know what you are talking about and try to trivialise what Brexit actually means to real people by sticking your head in the sand and pretending/hoping that things will stay the same; they won’t.
That’s why we are where we are… and guess what… why the backstop is being talked about.
