The reason the sea border is there is because Boris Johnson put it there. Not because it was better - but for political theatricals - pretending to his gullible supporters that he was the conquering hero who could reopen the deal where May could not. And they bought it.

This was never anything to do with getting the right deal. It was purely an act of cynical electioneering and an exercise to satisfy the vanity of Johnson. Everything he does is for political expediency. Boris first, party second, the UK a distant third.
They knew the consequences. They knew it was a charade - but their pals in the Tory press - Fraser Nelson, Allister Heath and all the little toryboy columnists went along with it. They never gave a toss about #Brexit. It was just about installing the fat oaf.
The ERG just needed the fat clown as a distraction. Something to keep the media busy with while they got on with their nasty little disaster capitalism operation behind the scenes. May's deal protected the union - but it was an obstruction. For the ERG, though, NI was expendable.
