Re: House of Lords delivers setback to May
Yes, I realise that, but it doesn't seem as if the May Govt. will be in power for much longer.

Re: House of Lords delivers setback to May
Is that a realistic position remembering The Troubles and what would the legality be of such a situation

Absolutely no chance whatsoever, the unionists/loyalists in NI would go completely ballistic if this were to happen.

the "troubles" would seem like a kid's birthday party compared to the hell that would break loose

Re: House of Lords delivers setback to May
If the May government goes, and if the new government are prepared to upset the Unionists and if the new government wants a hard Brexit it would still be easier to make special customs arrangements for Northen Ireland.

So, no. I still donít see any real chance of it happening.

Re: House of Lords delivers setback to May
I honestly don't see the May government going just yet. Brexit negotiations would be thrown for a loop if there was a sudden changing of the guard. It's less than a year to the deadline of the Article 50 announcement. Unless the conservatives have ultimately decided to just throw the proverbial 'F U' to Europe and aim for a hard Brexit. But I can't fathom that the entire conservative party wanting that outcome.

Re: House of Lords delivers setback to May
Unlike Pressie I donít expect it, even with the wave of rsignations. That said, the hard line Brexiteers will be making trouble and it isnít impossible that May might give up.

(But if they really after a hard Brexit going for ďno dealĒ seems easiest to me. Things are in enough of a mess as it is).

It's a political impossibility. We went to war with Argentina because an island everone here thought was off Scotland with a couple of hundred Brits on it was invaded and they wanted to reamian British. It would only be possible if the majority in NI voted for it. Even then it would be bloody.
