In 1939, the then head of the British army said
"the border in Ireland is militarily impossible to police "
So, until 1959, there were controls and checks of people and goods from GB to NI and NI to GB.
Then there was a time where many died.
there were 17 crossings open
The rest had been blocked or blown up by the british to try to "control the border "
That failed.
There are now 287 crossings, no infrastructure and not a person on the planet who would work or police an NI/IRL border.
Yet, all Jonson gov seeks is that..
A border with 300 crossings, 30,000 customs officials , 300 buldings
a bridge and tunnel, a motorway ring-road under the isle of man.
It is time an adult spoke.
"Technology " , Trusted trade, honest box, self declaration etc would be used in Dover if it was real
The entire world would be using magical english "non border" solutions if they existed.
Everyone on the planet would sign up for it.
sadly, it's all nonsense and everyone knows it.

Dear morons
when you say "trigger article 16" , all that means is you have to engage in 90 days to resolve the limited issue as long as it doesn't effect the overall working of the protocol .
Reading is a skill best learned at school .
when you say "let the EU put up a border "
The EU has no competence. It is not a state.
Your are referring to the british border in Ireland that was imposed without national or regional consent.
when you say "it's someone elses' s problem" you are accepting the UK must have an open border to GB via NI from anywhere on the planet cos IRL cannot legally control what enters the uk

I have reached 4 conclusions after much debate
1. The English/British don't understand other countries have a constitution and parliament is NOT sovereign, the people are .
2. The English/British don't understand they have no constitution so the 1667 act is replaced by the 1668 act , the 1801 act is replaced by the 1921 act and so on.
3. The English/British don't know their own legal and parliamentary system
