I hate to go over old ground, and for the most part he had the right of it (the Provisional Wing won't be getting rowdy, having the vision to let Britain shoot itself many times in it's own feet, a few dissident headcases will use their limited skills to deadly effect, the Wombles will try and get in on cross border smuggling etc.) but he's avoiding/ignoring the absolute chaos that's coming when ordinary joes are going to get asked to show documents and open the boot going about their everyday. Also, 300 crossings is incredibly conservative. That's roads. Fields. Rivers. The sea. Mountains.
I was out for a spin the other day. My phone 'nav slips into km if I'm in the republic by GPS. On one road, cresting the Flagstaff Hill outside Newry, I technically crossed the border six times. Inside 4 miles. Then I looked down onto the Lough. There's two pair of villages literally parallel on either side, maybe ten miles max (to say nothing of the smoke from maybe a dozen poitin men). Good fucking luck.
