Exactly. SM borders need to be treated equally. If nothing else an departure from this could cause protests from other neighbouring countries. Trust in SM is also important for third countries, e.g. the ones that have an FTA with the EU /1
George makes a very important point- the issue doesn't go away with #NoDeal. Let's remember that the Gov nodeal plan for NI, the TSP, was pretty much to ignore the border - no checks, no nothing. This is not a solution /2

It puts the EU in a very difficult position. Of course some will say "who cares". But in reality it's not good for Ni and RoI and this is something everyone in the UK should care about. Finding a solution to @BorderIrish will make or brake any #Brexit outcome /3
@BorderIrish The only way to do it is not to walk away from the problem like under current ND plans but to work together with the EU as borders are inherently two sided. So even under ND the UK will need to work with the EU to solve the NI border but as George points out it will be harder /4
@BorderIrish Paradoxically if you want Brexit to succeed working with the EU on NI border is the only way to ensure it. Trying to back the EU into a corner by making them choose between protecting SM integrity and no hard border In Ireland will backfire /end
