Taxi to #Belfast city centre to Belfast George Best airport this morning. Journey time = 12 minutes.

Driver asks "What do you do?"
Me: "Academic who does EU Law"
Driver: "Oh I need to ask you some questions then"... (short thread) /1
"We're really worried about our business and whether we'll be able to go over the border. Will people be able to order a taxi from the other side to go over? Will people be able to pay in £ or €?" /2
"We've been told we might have to carry our passports if we cross the border, and that we will have. to make sure everyone we are picking up has got their passports and we should check them?"
"How do we know how to check a passport especially if its from another country?" /3
"What happens if we get it wrong and a passport is false? What do we do if we think a passport isn't right?"
"Do we have to check what they are carrying too in their luggage in case it isn't allowed by customs?"
"Will we be insured to take people & how is that going to work?" /4
Unfortunately, I don't have the answers during a 12 minute journey. But if those posturing about their opposition to backstops, customs areas etc spoke to people (especially here) about the imminent and very real consequences, we might have a better focusing of minds. /END
