Why do you need a border in Ireland?
Me? :D I don't. If I had my way, there would be no such thing as borders.

Does anyone have any physical experience of other land borders to the EU?

I rarely travel outside the county, never mind country, but I'd be interested in how an internal Irish border might be initially set up.

I'm in the west of Ireland and the women, generally (not a hard and fast rule) are more likely to be selling at markets, general market stalls, farmers' markets and craft markets. Things they've grown or made. The male sellers are predominantly spuds-and-cabbage, the women cover the whole gamut. Als...

A bunch of opinionated middle aged and elderly men. No women, no kids, no ethnic diversity, probably no sexual diversity. Pale, stale, male - how dull. I always read Tess's and Renewable's posts even if I read no others. I'm sexist that way. Round where I live, it's the women who tend to be the doe...

Fascinating lecture on why so few people live in Scotland especially north of Edinburgh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZMR4l9lFYI No wonder they have a depopulation problem. Fascinating. We have a similar vitamin D problem in Ireland; after the disastrously cloudy summer of 2016 and its dreary w...

I'm not sure it will.
None of us can predict the future. Trump could get in again. You have to assume he will and plan accordingly.

A well-organised community could sort quite a few food problems in the absence of money or gold. Specialising in a particular type of crop, bartering etc. The protein content of broad beans makes them worth far more than an equivalent weight in spuds.

That's not sticking your neck out. That's calling it like it is, based on the overall stupidity of a country and its system.

I and several friends presume Trump will get back in.
