    In the end, I do not see how para's 49&50 resolve the basic choice: of customs checks either between NI & RoI, or between NI and rUK. And, my bet is that Tory Brexiteers would rather ditch NI than ditch Brexit

  2. I think @simonjhix may be right unfortunately. Many hard Brexiteers are English nationalists. Will the DUP and IRL find themselves advocating the same thing (soft Brexit) at some stage down the line?

    Surely IRL and mainstream NI opinion (which favoured remain) would find themselves on the same side if the choice was between ditching Tory Brexit red lines versus ditching paragraph 50 commitment to DUP

    (and that seems to be the choice)

  3. Let’s push it to the extreme. If NI goes, would Scotland stay?
