Let’s hope Brandon Lewis is just thick as shit rather than reneging on the WA and installing a hard border in Ireland
The new Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Brandon Lewis has said that there will be no border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Speaking to reporters in Belfast, ahead of his meetings at Stormont House, he said that there would be no border down the Irish Sea after the Brexit transition period.
Mr Lewis said: "The United Kingdom is going to be one area and all will be able to benefit from our future global trade deals.
"I appreciate what Michel Barnier says, he's a very good man trying to do a good job for the EU.
"But this is also the man who said we couldn't open the Withdrawal Agreement.
"Our Prime Minister got that agreement open, got a new agreement. We've got it through parliament, we've left the European Union.
"And we're going to build for a better economy for the whole of the United Kingdom as one.
"We are absolutely clear. As a UK government, we will not be having a border down the Irish Sea." https://www.rte.ie/news/2020/0214/11153 ... don-lewis/
