Aye, quite possible - thing is they were transported to the largest town closest to the border which was unusual - and just in time for Oct 31st.
Possibly all just a coincidence - bear in mind that I travel thru that town many times per week and have never witnessed a Customs vehicle - Police (Garda) yes but Customs no.
Anyways it’s a sign of things to come I suppose, it’s not a big deal.
There was a leak via the Times today that the EU proposed NI in the customs union but with a time limit - then as Tom suggested it would be up to politicians in NI (Stormont) to decide whether to renew or not - not a referendum.
It got shot down by the DUP on the basis that there would have to be agreement on both sides of the community (part of the GFA called ‘parity of esteem’),
Their Brexit spokesman, Sammy Wilson, said;
“It will go nowhere the Gov in Westminster will not accept it, we will not accept it.”
His reasoning was centerd around "given that all the other parties (in Stormont) are supportive of staying in"
So I guess that my idea seeking consent of the NI people on the land border issue would meet the same fate.
My mother’s saying in reverse - where there is no will there is no way.
