Pictures of rural country lanes, farm yards and vehicle hire depots are making the rounds on social media to highlight the enormity of the Irish border problem.
Mark Sugrue shared a collection of images grabbed from across the border that will separate the EU and the United Kingdom if the backstop is struck from the agreement.
New Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the EU must scrap the backstop to avoid a no-deal Brexit, saying ‘can-do spirit’ can solve problem of Irish border.
He has put his faith in technological solutions to prevent a hard border been put in place, regaling the triumphs of NASA to underpin his point.
