Theresa May has 3 Aims
1 Exit the Customs Union
2 Exit the Single Market
3 No ‘hard’ border between Eire and Northern Ireland
Bank of America have produced a helpful Venn diagram which shows the problem. EU law says that there must be a ‘hard’ border between Eire and Northern Ireland if we leave the Customs Union. Business Insider UK has an interesting article on this.
However, there needs to be another circle on the Venn diagram which explains the position. It fits neatly in the centre of the diagram and is entitled ‘Keep the Tories in power by appeasing Jacob Rees-Mogg et al’.
That’s the real reason we are in this mess!
