Brexit – Theresa May: “No Hard Border Between Northern Ireland and Ireland”

By now, only 9 percent of Britons back Prime Minister Theresa May’s so-called ‘Chequers’ plan to reach agreement with the EU on how to get Brexit ‘solved.’ Faced with an ever-shrinking deadline to come up with a solution, the pressure on the highest Tory politician is mounting by the minute, but Ms May still refuses to yield and make way for Mr Boris Johnson, eager to take over.

During her party conference she repeated her claim that she “does believe in Brexit” and set out her plan to increase stamp duty for foreign buyers, aka make it more expensive for foreigners wanting to buy real estate in the UK.

As home secretary for six years, Ms May had promised to bring down immigration, but the incoming traffic across the UK’s borders in fact barely paused. When taking over from Mr David Cameron after the Brexit vote on her first day as Prime Minister, she said she’d turn the Tories into the party of the working poor but has only tinkered with, rather than transformed, the UK’s tax and welfare policies.

Her critics say that she is the sole reason their party has thrown away a 20-point lead and the Tories’ majority in her disastrous election of 2017, meant to strengthen her position to negotiate Brexit. In the end, she had to settle for a working majority together with the Northern Irish DUP, which are proving to be quite the stumbling block now that she has to negotiate a border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Appearing on the political talkshow of Mr Andrew Marr this morning, Ms May was of course asked how she would achieve the border result needed on the Irish peninsula.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Let me repeat my offer to the Prime Minister on her Brexit deal. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Marr?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Marr</a> <a href="https://t.co/QuYbfWP0ne">pic.twitter.com/QuYbfWP0ne</a></p>&mdash; Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) <a href="https://twitter.com/jeremycorbyn/status/1046301521623875585?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

She answered, with a clear reference to her ‘Chequers’ proposal, that: “We as a UK government are still committed to do everything we can to make sure there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. There is only one plan on the table today that provides for a deal of a border solution between Northern Ireland and Ireland.”
